Adele Rolling in the 'Deep' After Africa Sex Tourism Skit

British singer Adele has come under fire for a skit, with Saturday Night Live cast members Kate McKinnon and Heidi Gardner, that intended to "mock" sex tourism. In the skit, they encouraged visitors -particuarly women of a certain age- to come to Africa, to see African men. The trio used cringe-worthy sexual innuendo that had critics blasting the production for the stereotypes, accusing them of "fetishizing" black men. The skit has been branded offensive by viewers.
