Sandra Oh Pokes Fun at Jussie Smollett Scandal in 'SNL' Sketch
The charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett may have been dropped, but that didn't stop Saturday Night Live from poking fun at the scandal once again on the latest installment of NBC's long-running late-night comedy series.
In a new sketch, Chris Redd's Smollett was late to a meeting with the makers of Empire but tried to convince them that his tardiness was due to being attacked again.
Host Sandra Oh played Smollett's manager, who was desperately trying to get him to stop talking and making up excuses for being late.
"Guys, you are not going to believe what just happened to me," Redd's Smollett said. He then took out a bag of clues that his attacker left for him, which contained Crest White Strips, a Teletubby and the letters "KKK." He was also wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.
"I'm the gay Mike Tyson," Redd's Smollett insisted as he tried to convince them he was telling the truth. "Jussie, please, just stop," Oh said as his manager, eventually firing him.
When the Empire producers suggested they call the police, Redd's Smollett replied, "They said I can never call again."
