Wanda vs. Madea: Jamie Foxx Mercilessly Mocks Tyler Perry on SNL

Tyler Perry’s dress wearing has put him at the receiving end of a lot of jokes, but none more funny than Jamie Foxx’s spoof on Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Live.

The skit, which mocked Perry’s  poor performance in Alex Cross, painted Perry as a mix between Cross and Madea, being half man and half old cantankerous black woman.

Not surprisingly, the skit also poked fun at Perry’s decision to act, direct, and executive produce all of his own films.

In the spoof, Jamie Foxx dresses as half Madea and half Alex Cross and attempts to solve murders, but Madea always goes gangster and tries to take over from Alex Cross.Jamie Foxx does a superb job in the spoof by perfectly mimicking Madea.

Funny enough, Tyler Perry has only been spoofed once before, on The Boondocks, an episode which some Perry fans said went a bit too far because of the s*xual insinuations. This latest spoof, however, was not personal, and par for the course for any celebrity spoof. In that sense, it didn’t feel nearly as personal or acidic as McGruder’s spoof.

The irony here is that Jamie Foxx became famous for his character “Wanda” on “In Living Color”. Is the pot calling the kettle black here?

Perry hasn’t commented on the spoof, but if history is any indication, we’re sure he took it all in stride. What do you think about the skit? Is it funny, or did it miss the mark?

    I like the fact that we have a forum to express our opinion. However, I am amazed at the intensity that the men have expressed in their post regarding men portraying women in the movies and TV. I for one, think it was funny…it is just jokes. But, if I was to look at it seriously, I may tend to sway to the other side of the spectrum. But thinking seriously, why isn’t there as much intensity from Black Males, regarding how “Black Males” are portrayed in movies, TV, and Media. We see all too often of the pants hangingoff their butt, violent, gun toting, drug dealers, etc…. Just a questions.

    The effeminization of the Black man continues. This role is nothing new to Jamie because his “character” Wicked Wonda came before “Madea”.
    Same character; different player!

    As long as, we are being ENTERTAINED, it’s okay to make a mockery of ourselves through these so-called ENTERTAINERS and BALL PLAYERS. The people in the pulpits, on stage, in the movies, on tell-a-LIE-vision, in the news, are all perceived as CRIMINALS, and they are Black!!!

    If you OBSERVED that ignorance on [SNL], the “male side” of his character NEVER shot the gun, until it “shot” himself. NEITHER one of the characters SHOT the cuacasoid boy in the scene! You NEVER see a Black man shooting a white boy in these movies, or a Black pig killing a white criminal, IN REAL LIFE!!!

    It’s time to end all of this buffoonery and coonery, which is being shown in the media. Our children are watching this bullshyt, and you brainwash a child’s mind when they are still young; this negativity is destroying our children. They even have “lil gangster” girl bands!!!

    Before our children reach school age, they would have witnessed over 40,000 VIOLENT MOVIES (on videos, tell-a-LIE-vision, and in their homes and neighborhoods). Therefore, they grow up with an attitude, of SELF-HATE or HATERISM!!!

    These caucasoids are still “hanging” us with their guns, pigs, racist school system, religion, and media. “He who controls the pen; controls your mind.”
