With his stand-up tour in New Jersey this weekend, it will need to have been tempting for Chris Rock to drop by his previous stomping grounds to deal with what went down with Will Smith on the Oscars simply six days in the past. But as a substitute, it was left to “Weekend Update” co-anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che to return to his protection. And they held nothing again.
“Intelligence officers are saying that Vladimir Putin is being misinformed by his advisers about how badly the Russian navy is performing in Ukraine,” Jost started, misdirecting viewers, “which is sort of like Will Smith’s agent telling him, ‘You crushed it on the Oscars!’”
Jost, who’s married to Smith’s fellow A-lister Scarlett Johansson, then joked that the incident “was a disgraceful act that units a horrible precedent for having to defend your spouse at awards exhibits.”
“During his acceptance speech Will Smith stated, ‘Love will make you do loopy issues,’” Che added. “You know what else makes you do loopy issues? Crazy! But I perceive the place Will’s coming from. I imply you may’t anticipate him to sit down there and watch one other man soar throughout his spouse… without signing an NDA.”
Che was much more pointed when he requested, “Can we cease pretending everyone knew Jada had alopecia? As a lot as we heard about Jada and Will’s private lives, you may’t anticipate us to retain every part. It’s like Kanye saying ‘Don’t act like y’all didn’t know I had psoriasis.’”
“Just selfishly as a comic I’m uninterested in folks placing their insecurities on our joke intentions,” he continued. “I imply, I can’t make a joke about it being chilly outdoors without any person yelling again, ‘Stop making enjoyable of my small penis!’”
And lastly, Che highlighted the truth that Chris Rock “has been very public about his non-verbal studying dysfunction, which suggests it is onerous for him to know non-verbal alerts.”
“Sort of like how when he noticed an indignant Will Smith charging towards him,” he defined, “as a substitute of shifting out of the way in which, he put each his palms behind his again, smiled and stated, ‘Uh oh.’”
