Saturday Night Live addressed the infamous slap a few times this past weekend. Entertainment Tonight reports that host Jerrod Carmichael talked about the Oscars slap in his opening monologue—without even having to mention Will Smith and Chris Rock by name.
"This is going to really blow your minds. Can you believe that it's been six days? Six days! This happened a week ago. Doesn't it feel like it happened years ago? Like doesn't it feel like it happened when we were all in high school? Like it feels like it happened between Jamiroquai and 9/11. A long, long time ago. It happened on Sunday. Sunday! It's Saturday, bro," he said.
Carmichael said he made a vow to stop talking about the slap, but that “Lorne [Michaels] came into my dressing room. He was like, 'I think you need to talk about it.' He said, 'The nation needs to heal.'"
Michael Che and Colin Jost made jokes about the incident on Weekend Update, and the show also featured a skit of the night in question.
