Saturday Night Live Weekend Update” hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che minced no words on Saturday night while commenting on Ye (aka Kanye West) and Diddy’s respective recent headlines.

Referring to a recently filed lawsuit by former Ye employee Trevor Phillips — who accused the musician of anti-Black racism, homophobic and antisemitic outbursts in a lawsuit filed on Tuesday — Che noted, “In a lawsuit against Ye, a former employee claims that Ye compared himself to Hitler, minus the gas chambers.”

Che then quipped, “I, for one, am shocked to hear that Ye believes in the Holocaust.” (Ye has served as musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” and once launched into a pro-Trump rant off-air while wearing a MAGA hat.)

Moving on to another embroiled hip-hop star, Colin Jost noted an embarassing moment in a “Live with Kelly & Mark” repeat that aired this past week referencing Diddy — taped long before the current investigation over the mogul’s alleged wrongdoings.

“This week, ‘Live with Kelly & Mark’ re-ran an episode from 2023 in which host Kelly Ripa begged to go on Diddy’s yacht,” Jost said, alluding to how that desire hadn’t aged well. Sean “Diddy” Combs is currently being investigated for alleged sexual misconduct and was recently named in a sexual assault lawsuit against his son, Christian Combs. Christian has been accused of sexual misconduct on a yacht that Diddy chartered.

Jost then poked fun at his co-anchor. “Even crazier, ‘SNL’ is airing an episode right now with a guy who was on Diddy’s yacht last week!” A picture of Michael Che photoshopped onto a yacht with a glass of champagne in hand appeared on the screen. The camera then showed Che shaking his head “no” with a smirk.

Kristen Wiig hosted the April 6 episode, with musical guest Raye performing. It was the former SNL cast member’s fifth time as a host, and she joined the “Five-Timer’s Club.” Other “Five-Timer’s Club” members appeared in the episode, including Paul Rudd, Jon Hamm, and Martin Short.
