With the recent trend of white women calling the police on black people for no real reason, Late Night with Seth Meyers presented this parody song.

You’ve no doubt heard about the stories lately of racist white women calling the cops on black people minding their own business. One woman, “Barbecue Becky,” recently went viral when she called the police upon witnessing a black man legally having a barbecue in a public park. An elderly woman phoned the fuzz because she saw a black woman outside who didn’t wave at her. Another lady, dubbed Permit Patty, became infamous as well after calling the cops on an eight-year-old girl selling bottled water.

Needless to say, this is beyond ridiculous. Understandably, these people have come under a lot of fire since going viral with these actions. And it’s certainly gone so far as to get them made fun of on late night television, notably in a new parody song presented by Late Night with Seth Meyers.

After filling in viewers on the story, Meyers says he has Amber Ruffin standing by to deliver an appropriate song in response. A spoof of the ’80s pop song “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell, Ruffin dishes out her own version, which is called “White Women Watching Me.” And trust me when I say that it’s incredibly hilarious and you need to watch it right away.

“When I’m at a barbecue, even in a public place, I break into a sweat, when Becky looks me in the face,” Ruffin as Rockwell sings, referencing Barbecue Becky. “She says on the phone, will the staring ever stop? Does she wanna do me in, or does she just want my pork chops?”
