If Leslie Jones ever bores of that Saturday Night Live racket, she’d make one heck of a fashion editor or judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Her style critiques may be scathing, but they’re too entertaining to not be shared with the world.
The comedian has been earning rave reviews for her side-splitting Winter Olympics commentary. Two figure skaters may be feeling the sting from her sartorial comments, though. It seems Jones wasn’t impressed with the yellow-and-black polka-dot outfits worn by the Olympic Athletes of Russia’s Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov for their pairs free skate routine.
Jones took to Twitter to release a few choice expletives about the “awful” ensembles.
“What is this Minnie Mouse f***ery?” she shouted at her TV. “His tie looks like a gag tie,” her rant continued. “They better be doing jokes in this routine. This routine better have comedy in it. … I’m so angry and distracted because it’s awful. I hate it. … Minnie Mouse wouldn’t even wear this s***. Well, Minnie Mouse might wear it. That’s even worse. That’s an even worse insult.”
Alas, clownish clothes were the least of Tarasova and Morozov’s worries; multiple errors in the routine resulted in a medal-less fourth-place finish. If it’s any consolation, at least Jones didn’t compare them to a vampire, as she did the eventual winner, Germany’s Aliona Savchenko.
At least figure skating commentator Johnny Weir (finally) got some love.
She’s a harsh mistress – but she’s hilarious, too.
