Musical Guest Cardi B Revealed Her Baby Bump on ‘SNL’ and Twitter Went Crazy
‘Black Panther’ star Chadwick Boseman guested as T’Challa on “Black Jeopardy.”
Cardi played it cool in her first performance of the night, wearing a carefully-made black and white get up that showed nothing, then made her dramatic reveal.
There was an audible gasp from the in-studio SNL audience. There was a much bigger gasp—sort of—on Twitter.
Not all of it was positive.

Cardi B is like 6 months pregnant, why do people think they get a vote in her choices? The whole point is her right to make them.

Of course, Cardi had final say.

As far as the rest of the show was concerned, Black Panther star Boseman was probably one of the most talented guest hosts in a while, though he didn’t always have great sketches to work with.
One of the best was probably his straight-faced turn as T’Challa on “Black Jeopardy.”
