At first glance Viola Davis‘portrayal of former first lady Michelle Obama seemed like a Saturday Night Live skit.

Davis plays Michelle Obama in a Showtime series titled “The First Lady” that debuted on Sunday night.

In one scene from the series, Davis constantly pursed his lips and made exaggerated facial expressions while speaking to the actor who plays former President Barack Obama.

Black Twitter wondered how Michelle felt about Viola’s over-the-top acting.

Davis continued her exaggerated facial expressions in another scene that looked like it came straight out of Tyler Perry‘s “The Oval” TV series.

It isn’t clear why the Oscar winner played the part of Michelle the way she did. Or if she was directed to play a comical version of the real Michelle

TMZ reports that Davis was taking her role very seriously. But Twitter didn’t think so.

Black Twitter wasn’t happy with Viola’s acting skills. See the comments below.
