if mean girls was black

I was going to leave this video without any further commentary, but that would have been too easy.  Some may get offended, some may not even find it funny, and others may not  know the premise behind “Mean Girls”. Lets just say it’s about a bunch of mean white high school chicks and Lindsay Lohan before whatever drugs she’s on took over her whole career.

Here’s a clip:

In comes Todrick Hall, a former American Idol contestant, now YouTube sensation. Hall has numerous videos on his YouTube channel, but this remake of “Mean Girls” is pretty much the funniest. Since it’s Friday, relax a bit and maybe laugh one or two times.

    This is hilarious! I died!! Especially at “I’m a roach!”

    I’m sure some might find it offensive but it’s hard to be funny without being at least a bit offensive.

    mean girls is one of my classics. i loved this clip. they should do the entire movie. so many youtuber cameos!

  • ImJustSaying

    I have very mixed feelings about this. It was funny. And I laugh out loud a bit but I still felt sad for laughing. EVERY CHARACTER was a extreme stereotype. I understand that there are people like this everywhere I’ve met them and know some personally BUT I’m sure there are people in Compton that act just like “Fake LiLo” There are more people in the world that AREN’T RATCHET than there are ratchet people. This is the same thing we complain abut with Tyler Perry.
    Yes I watched and I laughed, but I was hoping he at least had a group of people that weren’t so extreme. Hell he could have called it the “LAME group” They don’t go out the don’t twerk they just stay at home and do their homework on time. Come on Toddrick think outside the stereotype box for a bit.

    But this is a completely make-up fictional 5 minute youtube video storyline perpetuated on another completely scripted made-up fictional movie based of extreme stereotypes.

    It’s not “reality’ TV, they’re acting, like for real for real.

    As a matter of fact, MLE is the little girl from “Everybody Hates Chris”

    Sigh… I should’ve known better than to click on a video that’s sourced from WSHH. Slapstick and stereotypical comedies are genres I can’t stand.

    Feels like I’m the only person on the planet who didn’t find this funny

  • Kam

    I didn’t find it funny. I didn’t find it offensive either, just…tiring. It’s one thing to make fun of ourselves, I get that. However in my 30+ years on this earth what it seems like is that Black people relate to themselves in a certain deprecating way and facing the reasons and history of that is just tiring.

  • Natalie

    lol you’re not

  • Miakoda

    *Sighing* Yea, I didn’t find it all that funny either.

  • lynn

    You have to watch the real “mean girls” movie to understand why it’s funny. It’s one of my favorite movies!

    Nope you are not because this was whack and so not funny but chalked full of the same old jargon and representation we are trying to rally against. And I saw the original mean girls so this parody was a miss.

  • kaf

    I think you are reading way to much into this, if you have watched the original version of mean girls, the remake would have made better sense, this film was not made to be politically or historically correct, it was made out of fun and to make fun of a film.

  • omfg

    i’m over this type of stuff. i wish black people were too.

    but, we’re sorta stuck on stupid, unfortunately.

    HY-STER-I-CAL. This is the same guy who did Belle and the Beat. If you haven’t seen it, you must: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJzds6fRfjM.

    He has talent, for real. And honestly, not everything has to result in a March on Washington. It is OK to watch something and laugh. Comedians comment on society, observations, and everyday stereotypes and Todrick is better than some of them.

    i thought it was funny! i cracked up when they tried to get lulu on the line!

  • RenJennM

    LMAO!!! I’m dyinnnnn’! This was well done. And I loved all of the cameos!

    To those of you who don’t get it or “didn’t find it funny”: go watch the ACTUAL movie, “Mean Girls” starring Lindsay Lohan, Tiny Fey (“30 Rock”), Rachel McAdams (“The Notebook”), Amanda Seyfried (“Les Miserables”), and Tim Meadows (“The Ladies Man”). The movie was a huge hit because it is hysterically funny, is cleverly written, and has a great message for young girls. If you saw the movie, then you should have found the parody funny. If you didn’t see the movie, then… well, that explains it.

  • Shelly

    I agree 100 percent. I have a sense of humor, but I am WAY past tired of these “every black person is ghetto” stereotypes. It’s embarrasing that these images are always what is out there to represent us. Of course these things shouldn’t be a representation of all of us, but when this is mostly all that we put out there of ourselves, this is what people think we are (including ourselves). Useless. There are other ways to be funny without acting like this,

  • Shelly

    ^ my comment was supposed to be in response to someone. and I will add that I’ve seen the original movie, so the video made “sense,” but still a no for me.

  • BeanBean

    I watched this after working a 12 hour shift. Funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. It’s well made, funny, and just crazy lol. I would pay good money to see the full version of this movie!

  • Kam

    I’ve seen the original movie. Doesn’t help.

  • Miakoda

    “If you saw the movie, then you should have found the parody funny.”

    Why should have I? Because you said so?

  • ImJustSaying

    I know it’s acting, Did something in my comment make you believe I thought this was real?

    People tear down Tyler Perry for his foolish/Coonish characters but because this is “sooo funny” it’s ok.

    I’m just saying there are other types of Black people besides Hood and Ratchet. If we are going to make “our own” shows and movies we don’t need to use the same tired list of “black traits” as the white writers in Hollywood.

    I’m all for “black people working” but does every role have to be hood? Even from black creators? Is that all we are?

  • RenJennM

    Because I said so?

    No. Because it’s a parody. That’s why.
