    1. Ben Jones

      Lmaaoo β€œ It starts with a Q” funniest line in the whole sketch.

    2. Danny Reyes

      I thought she was 50 cent lmao

    3. javaanji

      Is she michelle obama?

    4. Bishop Lewis

      R Kelly:people think I'm a what's it called starts with a q Gayle:a sex offender R kelly:Yeah that's it!!!

    5. Joe Easley


    6. Tayler Daye

      They're not making light of the allegations or the suffering of (alleged but very likely) victims...they're making fun of the airheaded dumbcunt who (allegedly but very *very* likely) committed the crimes he's accused of and how ignorantly he acted in this moment...

    7. Lil King

      This isn't that funny.

    8. Paul Robinson

      The amount of brilliance by Keenan in that skit can not be overstated.

    9. ViVe TV

      I wonder where the parody is? Why’d SNL decide to upload the real interview.

    10. Aaron X. Taylor

      "So y'all jus keep y'all camera out in the open like dat? Y'all some freaks!"

    11. Shae Thebest

      All you gotta do is push a button on your phone πŸ“± and send a video of me doing something and lie and say I did it LMAOOOO

    12. E. H.

      Where are the new Michael Jackson jokes though? :D us-new.com/online/video-2SSVIg4Noqc.html



    14. Xanzy Spacedragon

      This would have been the perfect sketch if on the final time Keenan asked for "A word that starts with a Q" Instead of replying to Gale's "Big Mac" with a "Yes", Keenan had replied with "No, It's a Quarter Pounder. Duh"

    15. D R

      Omg 🀣.... this funny!

    16. Matthew Anthony

      I came in expecting this to be funny.

    17. Josh

      cringe through Leslie Jones squeezing out lines... watch Keenan be a legend...

    18. Young Man

      I usually don’t find SNL funny, but this made me laugh

    19. DQ Sims

      Instead of making a mockery of the situation SNL you should try to help them think about the victims if he did do it and how they feel looking at this sad bizarre skit SMHπŸ˜ͺ😨😩

    20. Ron DayVoo

      This deserves an Emmy or something, I’d like to shake the hands of the writers and the actors.

    21. Tryhard killers

      The 11k people who dislike like pissing on kidsπŸ˜­πŸ˜‚

    22. Samuel Anthony

      See? SNL can do more than make fun of Trump.

    23. Mausam Mukherjee

      perfect skit till the end scene, worth 13 out of 10

    24. Kill Time

      She looks like 50 cent lol

    25. Jason

    29. Cornelius Tacitus

      Don't rape kids, pay your child support, and if you're a narcissist, don't trust your instincts. But no one who does those things will follow my advice, that's the tragedy.

      Mrs jail king so u not the jail king

    93. Marcus Garvey

      The Victim aka R. "Keenan" Kelly : I know i can't read, write or math, but i am still a person. "I put on my pants one sleeve at a time just like everybody else." πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That skit line felt like when someone says " that stuff is mind blowing and boggling at the same time in one sentence"! The execussion by Keenan was classic, rediculously raw and genius. It gives you a thought that they shouldnt give R. Kelly a deffence lawyer because he really believes in his big heart and strange ego that he can defend and beat his own sexual missconduct charges allegation. And i am for a special. just for him. He should get more mainstream media air coverage time. America please just let the world greatest RnB thug represent himself and drop more jewels for SNL sketches. I just can't get enough of this Victim/offender aka R. Keenan performance. # Will The real R. Kelly please stand UP ? If both R. Kelly and R. Keenan stood up who would be able to tell the difference. The Victim/offender R. "Keenan" Kelly says, I have given you ; 1.Trapped in a closset 2.Only the Loot can makes me happy 3. Age aint nothing but a number 4. I'll go Half on a baby and many other clues, you still do not believe me........πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. We want more, we want more, we want more from the Victim/offender aka R. "Keenan" Kelly SNL!!!!!

    94. Krystal Anderson

      I dont know how they kept a straight face!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    95. Dominique Santos

      This was dead on. I know even R.Kelly had to giggle a little. That victim part was priceless πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
