First, the 2022 oscar controversy, then Tony Rock’s burst out (Jada’s side-eye) and now Michael Che’s roast at SNL. Seems like Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are having the craziest of their lives.
Will Smith’s slap is making a buzz all around the world. Saturday Night Live hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che roasted Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith during their news segment. Let’s have a look at what happened.

Saturday Night Live hosts Coli. Jost and Michael Che roasted Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith for the Oscar scandal. How did they do it? Well, they could have re-enacted the whole scene but instead, the hosts opted for a lot of punch lines.
Now, Colin Jost began by saying, “For those of you who don’t know, Will Smith walked on stage during the Academy Awards and slapped Chris Rock after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, which I think was a disgraceful act that sets a terrible precedence for having to defend your wife at award shows.” Ouch, that did hurt.
Michael Che was all like “I can’t stay calm.” He joined Jost as Jost spoke about Smith’s Oscar acceptance speech. She said Smith broke down in tears and stated “Love will make you do crazy things”. Che joked and said, “You know what else will make you do crazy things? Crazy.”
The roasting didn’t stop here. Colin Jost also joked about Will Smith’s resignation from the Academy. FYI, Smith has become the first actor in the history of Hollywood to have voluntarily resigned from the Academy.
Coming back to Che, he said “If Will Smith had been expelled, he would’ve joined a small group of people kicked out of the Academy including Bill Cosby, Roman Polanski and Harvey Weinstein,”. Jost interrupted and said. “Or as they’re also known ‘Bad Boys for Life’.” Well, SNL was like a Smiths’ jam sesh, or I should say Smiths’ roast sesh.
Not just his, Host Jerrod Carmichael recapped the scandalous Oscar slap during his monologue and said, “I’m not going to talk about it. Aren’t you sick of talking about it?” Well, actions speak louder than words.
The 34-year stand-up comedian also ended up re-enacting a hilarious sketch about a fictional version of how people were reacting to the infamous Oscar incident that surrounded Will Smith and Chris Rock. Guess what? He wasn’t alone. He prepared it in collaboration with Chris Redd.

Tony Rock did it too…
In my previous article, I did write about how Tony Rock couldn’t hold back emotions for his brother, and called Jada Pinkett Smith a b**** and accused her of giving a side-eye to Will Smith. He said that Will was manipulated by Jada to slap his brother.
It seems like Will Smith’s got a long list of people whom he’d be slapping next, including SNL host Michael Che, Colin Jost, Jerrod Charmichael and Chris Redd, just joking. Did you watch this episode of SNL?
The world is depressed by the mishaps of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. The Oscar incident has certainly distracted our minds, even if for some time. The 2022 Oscars are going down in history. Thanks to Will, Jada and Chris. What do you think?
