Banks said she was not scheduled to be part of the battling, which is the portion of the show where guests and the cast roast each other. However, she said she received heated insults about how she looked, like being called "ugly." She criticized the jokes as "colorist."

After attacking the cast for its "highly UNimpressive resumes," she said she's "never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else" in that moment.

However, people on social media fired back. They said that Banks has "bullied" others herself and that she willingly went on a show known for comedic and sometimes brutal roasts.
