How Dionne Warwick Really Feels About Her SNL Impersonation

Music legend Dionne Warwick proved to be a good sport following a Saturday Night Live skit that aired on Dec. 12, 2020, in which SNL cast member Ego Nwodim portrayed the songstress. The comedian had viewers roaring as she poked fun at Warwick's lovable social media presence and shared several real-life tweets from the icon, including her very important question for Chance the Rapper

"Hi, @chancetherapper. If you are very obviously a rapper, why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this," Warwick tweeted on Dec. 5, 2020, later adding, "I am now Dionne the Singer." Saturday Night Live also highlighted her Dec. 3, 2020, message to Snoop Dogg, where she tweeted, "How do send a tweet to @SnoopDogg? Did I do this correctly?"

The sketch also referenced Warwick's relationship with niece Brittani Warwick, whom she looks to for technological guidance and often tweets about. In fact, just one night after the episode aired, the singer posted, "Brittani has a very particular way of using social media. It is her profession. I learned from her. It wasn't easy, but now I know that 'guff' is actually 'gif.' Ask her, not me!" While fans are laughing with the singer as she tries to navigate social media, it looks like she is in on the joke.
