Things We Saw Today: Amber Ruffin Sings “White Women Watching Me” on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Plus Mark Hamill, Bao, trans reporting and more!

Amber Ruffin has long been the best part of Late Night with Seth Meyers. Between “Amber Says What” and “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell”, the scene-stealing comic is a force to be reckoned with. This week, in light of the epidemic of white ladies calling the cops on black people just for existing, Amber dresses up as 80’s pop star Rockwell and sings “White Women Watching Me”, a brilliant take on “Somebody’s Watching Me.” Give this woman her own damn show already!

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. She currently lives in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, son, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
