'SNL': Bill Hader Plays the "Harvey Weinstein of Canada" in #MeToo Spoof

NBC's Saturday Night Live jumped back into the #MeToo conversation this weekend with a sketch that poked fun at Canada. During the sketch, host Bill Hader played Thomas Logan, the fictional “Canadian Harvey Weinstein” who resigned after making comments to his assistant like “Nice sweater” and “Where’d you get those sunglasses?”

The sketch suggested that seemingly innocuous comments were cause for serious concern in Canada, thereby poking fun at the stereotype that Canadians are nice and frequently say "sorry."

Hader appeared throughout the sketch Photoshopped into pictures with Canadian celebrities like Ryan Gosling and Drake. His character’s films included Y’Don’t Say and It Happened at Tim Horton’s

The bandmembers of the Canadian indie band Arcade Fire, who were the show’s musical guest, also appeared in the sketch, all saying "sorry" in exaggerated accents.

“I’m sorry, guys, we have to wrap this up,” castmember Cecily Strong said as the host of a CBC talk show doing a segment on Hader's character. Everyone immediately started saying "sorry" on top of each other.
