Playing Maya Rudolph Does Bizarre Impersonation of Rachel Dolezal

Maya Rudolph has yet another character to add to her long list of impersonations.

The Saturday Night Live alum -- who has nailed impressions of Beyonce and Donatella Versace in the past -- attempted to mimic former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal during her appearance on Monday's Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Rudolph, 42, admitted that she's been approached to impersonate Dolezal ever since questions about her race were raised earlier this month. "I remember Tina [Fey] saying when Sarah Palin was happening, everyone kept saying, her doorman's like, 'You gotta be Sarah Palin!' But it happens to me every day, people are like, 'Oh, it's too bad, you haven't been on SNL since 2007," she said. "You have to play this lady.'"

Meyers convinced the Bridesmaids star to imitate Dolezal after playing an interview of her with a Spokane, Wash. ABC affiliate where she dodges questions about the ethnicity of her parents. Rudolph took the impersonation to the next level and even put on a curly wig.

Her facial expressions were pretty on point as she and Meyers recreated the interview. "I think America really missed out," Rudolph joked. "I'm so glad I brought my Rachel Dolezal wig. I always keep it in my purse."

Kelly Osbourne's impression of Dolezal was not so well received. See what commenters had to say about the former Fashion Police star's controversial Instagram post.
