Adele Slammed for ‘Offensive’ Skit About Africa on ‘SNL’

Share on Facebook

It’s no secret that the world is head over heels for Adele. The singer is known for her powerful voice, her infectious laughter, and her ability to remain so down to earth despite reaching such a successful platform. Those 3 qualities are enough to make her one of the most outstanding musical artists of our generation.

Her weight loss journey has made countless headlines over the past year or 2 – but after her latest SNL teaser, people can’t stop talking about something else altogether. Yep, Adele is in hot water for one offensive skit…

And no, this time it wasn’t with a dramatic change in appearance, even though that was an extra bonus factor.

This includes a host, a Bachelorette, and an American woman… yes, you read that right.

But there was one skit people were not loving.

Even though the singer has recently been in the spotlight for her entirely new look, this controversy has overshadowed everything.

But that doesn’t mean we’re not being supplied with the Adele-content we’ve been asking for.

A British born and bred singer with the ability to stun audiences with her powerful voice, Adele is known for bringing back the “classic ballad” to the music industry.

While the song was tucked away among other more pop-infused beats, it managed to rank pretty well, climbing its way to slot twenty-one as the lead single from her debut album.

Then followed her debut album, 19.

19, along with her second follow-up album 21 earned her immense critical praise and the success of both the albums cemented her in the industry.

After taking a break to focus on her personal life in 2012, Adele returned back to the scene with her sensational hit “Hello.”

Shortly after, she released her next album, 25, which featured iconic songs such as “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).” If you haven’t listened to that album, please do yourself a favor and add it to your playlist. You will not be disappointed.

Her list of achievements is outstanding, to say the least. Adele has fifteen Grammys as well as an Oscar tucked nicely under her belt and the list is expected to grow as rumors of her next album have sparked fans.

According to the word on the street (also known as Twitter), Adele has undergone one of the most amazing transformations they have ever seen.

And people could hardly recognize her!

But she completely switched it up for her friend’s special occasion. Adele decided to ditch the plain tees and jeans for a sleek, new black number that really showed off how far she has come in terms of her weightloss.

Adele has always been gorgeous, but she often spoke out about how she wasn’t happy with her body.

And that’s fine. Everyone’s allowed to have their personal goals about what they want to look like. It doesn’t take anything away from her amazing talent as a singer.

“Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a [mom] to Angelo.”

“It’s a bonus that she has shifted some weight. Her mates are glad she’s letting loose and there’s nothing but good feelings towards her. She’s got a new lease of life.”

But how did the hit-maker manage to get to this point? In 2016, when she spoke to Vogue, she revealed some of the little tips she implemented into her life to make the drastic change including pilates and cutting out the caffeine in her life.

That Adele is looking better than ever.

She looks happy. And if she’s happy, we’re happy.

And her latest SNL teaser debuted multiple stunning looks and we just can’t get enough of them.

Wow. Just wow.

Adele really knows how to keep her fans itching for more.

An offensive SNL skit has been getting the internet really riled up…

But many are concerned with how it perpetuated dangerous stereotypes …
