According to People:

As Jerrod Carmichael made his debut on Saturday Night Live, he and the cast couldn’t help but poke fun at Will Smith and Chris Rock.

The 34-year-old stand-up comedian parodied the incident involving Will, 53, and Rock, 57, at the 94th Academy Awards numerous times throughout his hosting gig on Saturday evening, which featured rappers Gunna and Future as musical guests.

During one sketch, Carmichael appeared as a seat filler at the 2022 Oscars, where he conversed with Chris Redd‘s Will leading up to and immediately after the incident where the King Richard┬ástar slapped Rock following his joke made about Jada Pinkett Smith‘s hair.

Rock previously appeared as a cast member on SNL from 1990 to 1993. He has hosted the show three times between 1996 and 2020.

Additionally, further mentions of the slap were sprinkled throughout the episode at various moments.

During the show’s cold open, James Austin Johnson portrayed Donald Trump during a parody of Fox News’ Fox & Friends, where the former president addressed the slap and referred to Will as “Hitch.”

“I did see [the] slap. I enjoyed [the] slap. I was very impressed with my Hitch,” he said. “Quite an arm on Hitch. I always knew Hitch had an arm.”
