There may be a lot of impersonations of Rachel Dolezal floating around out there, but everyone has been waiting very patiently for Maya Rudolph‘s Rachel Dolezal impression. The former NAACP Spokane chapter president has put claims out there that she “identifies as black.”

Of course, Maya didn’t want to let fans down, so when she showed up on Late Night With Seth Meyers, she was asked to impersonate someone who has made headlines in past weeks.

“It happens to me every day,” The Bridesmaid star said. “People are like, ‘It’s too bad you haven’t been on SNL since 2007. Like you have to play this lady.'”



To prep Maya for the impersonation, Seth Meyers showed a short clip of Dolezal being asked by a reporter if her father was African American, following with if she was African American. With a dumbfounded look, Dolezal could barely think of an answer and ended up saying she “didn’t understand the question.”



Another star who has been noted for criticizing Rachel is former Fashion Police star Kelly Osbourne, who wore a wig like Rachel’s and posted a selfie captioned #CallMeRachel.
