There are some things even Beyoncé can’t handle, and apparently hot sauce is one of them, according to “Saturday Night Live.”
This week’s “SNL” host Maya Rudolph brought back her impression of the superstar from her days as a cast member in a sketch that parodied popular YouTube series “Hot Ones,” in which guests try chicken wings with progressively hotter hot sauces while being interviewed by host Sean Evans (played by Mikey Day).
“I still can’t tell if this is beneath me,” Rudolph’s Beyoncé says as soon as she walks onto the set clad in her black leather look from the Grammys. “But my sister Solange loves this show, so I said I’d do it.”
Being from Texas, Rudolph’s Beyoncé says she can handle any hot sauce, but after trying two rather offensively named sauces, she can’t answer questions and starts to sweat rather dangerously. She eventually calls her hair stylist on stage, played by Kenan Thompson, for help.

“I need you to take my wig off, put six ice cubes on my head, then put my wig back on.” she says.
When the wings became far too much for Rudolph’s Beyoncé to eat, her entourage came to fix everything, taking audio files, video files and forcing everyone to sign a non-disclosure agreement, or else they be shot. They can’t let a “bad look for Yoncé” get out.
