Actor Daniel Kaluuya took shots at the British royal family in his opening monologue during his first appearance as a host on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
The jab came shortly after the British-born actor — known for his roles in blockbusters like “Get Out,” “Judas and the Black Messiah” and the “Black Panther” — introduced himself to a cheering audience on late Saturday.
“First of all, I know you’re hearing my accent and thinking ‘oh no, he’s not Black, he’s British,’” he joked.
“Let me reassure you that I am Black. I’m Black and I’m British. Basically, I am what the royal family was worried the baby would look like,” Kaluuya joked.
Kaaluya’s comments come after Meghan, duchess of Sussex, said in a bombshell interview last month with Oprah last and her husband, Prince HarryPrince HarryTucker Carlson to air Piers Morgan interview on Fox streaming service Why the unhinged woke brigade is a profound threat to our freedom Hillicon Valley: House lawmakers fired up for hearing with tech CEOs | Zuckerberg proposes conditional Section 230 reforms | Lawmakers reintroduce bill to secure internet-connected devices MORE, that there were discussions in the royal family about “how dark” her son was going to be before he was born.

Kaluuya then began to discuss racism in the United States.
“People ask me what’s worse? British racism or American racism?” Kaluuya then went on before saying to laughs from the audience, “British is so bad white people left.”
“They wanted to be free, free to create their own kind of racism,” Kaluuya continued. “So then, that’s why they invented Australia, South Africa and Boston.”
Kaluuya, who is of Ugandan descent, also joked afterward about his background.
“Anyone from Uganda here?” he asked the audience, from which a few cheers could be heard in response. “That’s my auntie, yes, she is here.”
He and the audience laughed before saying he has his “big Ugandan family here.”
“My is one of 22 kids and my dad is one of 49,” he said, joking: “My family is literally about that life. They say Black don’t crack, but condoms do.”
