This weekend's episode ofSaturday Night Lifespoofed R. Kelly's intense interview withCBS This Morning co-host Gayle King. Throughout the sketch, Kelly (played by Kenan Thompson) asked King (portrayed by Leslie Jones) to refer to him as "Victim," which she refused. Thompson-as-Kelly also explained why he decided to do the interview. "Because people think I’m some kind of a monster. I’m here to remove all of that," he declared. "My lawyer was telling me no, but my ego—it was telling me yes." He later noted, "You can start a rumor about any celebrity, just like that. All you gotta do is push a button on your phone and say, 'R. Kelly did this to me,' and then attach a video of me doing that thing, and people will believe you, it’s scary."
