The blood-squirting routine isn’t new. It’s been done by many, especially Las Vegas magicians Penn and Teller.
But Quentin Tarantino couldn’t have done a better job choreographing this copious blood-letting, with liquid shooting out of the guest host’s fingers, hands and legs.
On Instagram, Jones said: “This man almost made me puke on national television!! Lmao we had a good time with James Franco!!”
Others suggested that Jones stifled vomiting by gagging down the red-dye liquid.
“Basically, the fake blood landed in Jones’ mouth, then she threw up in her mouth, and then she swallowed it so she wouldn’t throw up on live TV… because she’s a goddamn trooper.
Hosting SNL for the fourth time, former UCLA short-timer Franco said: “My favorite sketch ever.”

I'd say James Franco spit at least, what, a good half-cup of stage blood into Leslie Jones's mouth there, yeah? These are folks who are hella dedicated to their craft. https://t.co/auskWVBQt2
