Just for funzies: Kristen Wiig’s last SNL episode

Whether you loved or hated Bridesmaids, Indisputable Feminist Wisdom posits that Kristen Wiig is the best ever. She’s smart, funny as hell, and not afraid to shy away from real conversations about what it’s like to be a woman in what can be a truly– let’s face it– sexist a$$ industry. Haliegh Collins over on Policy Mic even goes so far as to call Wiig a “feminist icon”, noting that “In a sexist industry, Kristen Wiig has succeeded not just as another funny, silly actress, but as a personable and witty writer,” and posting a video of her talking about sexism in the movie business in response to being asked if she’s a feminist. It seems we’re not the only ones who are fans of this badass feminist comedienne: this weekend marked her final SNL episode as she continues to broaden the scope of her career and move onto bigger and more awesome opportunities. The final episode was really touching and showed just how much everyone on the cast respects and admires Wiig’s powerhouse brand of comedy! Just for funzies cause it’s Wednesday, check out Wiig’s send off below.
