‘SNL’ Spoofs Jay Z and Solange Elevator Fight

SNL Spoof

Following last week’s “Beygency” skit, “Saturday Night Live” couldn’t resist poking fun at the infamous elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange. Jay Pharoah played Hov and Sasheer Zamata took on Solange as they explained the reason behind the post-Met Gala incident while a bodyguard (Keenan Thompson) nervously stood by.

According to them, the real reason Solange attacked her brother-in-law was because Jay had a spider on him. They voiced over the surveillance footage that leaked on TMZ last week.

“SNL” alum Maya Rudolph returned to reprise her role as Beyoncé, doing a hilarious impression of Queen Bey.

They also got some sweet revenge on the Standard Hotel employee who leaked the video, showing footage of him digging his butt, kissing himself in the mirror, and trying to breakdance.

Watch “SNL” have some fun at their expense.

Jay Z and Beyoncé

Beyoncé and Jay Z are taking on the headlines with a smile. Despite the footage of Jay Z’s elevator scuffle with Solange leaking earlier in the day, the superstar couple was back on the court for Game 4 of the playoffs between the Nets and Heat at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Monday.

They didn’t get to their seats until the second quarter, but when they did, they were acting like their normal selves and chatted up their pal LeBron James.

The Carters also attended Saturday’s game before the surveillance video went public on TMZ.

The Standard Hotel in New York, where Solange attacked her brother-in-law following the Met Gala, said they were “shocked and disappointed” by the security breach.

“We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity,” the hotel said in a statement.

Before the world saw the infamous surveillance video of Solange attacking Jay Z, Beyoncé and her husband enjoyed a peaceful night out at the Nets vs. Heat playoff game on Saturday. The couple seemed perfectly happy as they cheered on the Brooklyn team at Barclays Center. Jay even shared laughs with actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Following Solange’s brawl with her brother-in-law at the Met Gala after-party, E! Online reports that Beyoncé and Solange attended Kelly Rowland’s secret wedding to Tim Witherspoon in Costa Rica.

According to immigration reports, Bey and her sister entered the country on Thursday and left Saturday morning. Jay Z was reportedly not present, but Michelle Williams and Bey’s mom Tina Knowles did make the trip.

On Saturday, Beyoncé posted an Instagram photo of herself clad in what appeared to be wedding attire with the caption “GoodMorning.”

Solange Attacks Jay Z in an Elevator

Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Solange

File this under strange. Jay Z was violently attacked by his sister-in-law Solange inside an elevator at a Met Gala after-party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC.

TMZ has obtained surveillance footage from the bizarre incident.

Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Solange step into the elevator. Solange can be seen screaming at Jay before physically assaulting him, kicking and swinging at him.

A bodyguard attempts to hold her back, but she manages to land a kick before Jay grabs her foot. Meanwhile, Beyoncé stands back and eventually gets in the middle of them to block the fight.

At one point, the bodyguard hits the emergency switch on the 12th floor to stop the elevator from opening.

It’s unclear what triggered the fight. The photo above was taken as they left the party, and Solange is clearly not happy.

UPDATE: Watch the full three-and-a-half-minute clip of the wild fight below.
