As previously reported, White’s unlikely stint hosting SNL started when a Texas man created a Facebook page campaigning for the pop culture sensation to host the program, which garnered a massive response from fans of the  Emmy winning star.  White fans have also taken to the social networking Web site in campaigning for her to host the Oscars and Emmys, as well  as making an appearance on the Fox hit show Glee.
