You know you've made it when Leslie Jones records herself yelling at the screen while watching your show,. That's what she did for Queen Latifah's new action drama The Equalizer, as Jones thrilled to the sight of Robyn McCall beating a bad guy up with a clipboard. She even provided her own dialogue, complete with a unique new way to pronounce Kandahar.
Ok I love this show!! Go @IAMQUEENLATIFAH I love roles like this and you are the best! I will definitely be live tweeting next week! @TheEqualizerCBS #iwanttoplayvilliansoqueencanwhipmyass pic.twitter.com/WS3LtfMJeK— Leslie Jones 🦋 (@Lesdoggg) February 15, 2021
For her part, Queen Latifah is loving it. Whether or not the show will take Jones's hashtag request to play a villain just so Queen can beat her up remains to be seen.
