Betty White Appears On SNL Thanks To Facebook

Betty White SNL IconLast night Betty White appeared on Saturday Night Live following an organized movement to get the 88-year-old celebrity on the show, starting back in February. The program started off with White’s opening monologue which poked fun at Facebook users, followed by her heartfelt thanks for voicing their support her.

Betty White told the audience that she “really has to thank Facebook”. She also admitted humorously that “When I first her about the campaign to get me to host Saturday Night Live, I didn’t know what Facebook was.” She continued, “Now that I know what it is, it sounds like a huge waste of time”. She then took a jab at users, stating that, “I wouldn’t say the people on it are losers, but that’s because I’m polite.”

While we didn’t watch the entire show, Betty White demonstrated that she is still a class act. You can watch the opening monologue below, and the entire episode on the NBC site.
