The cast of Saturday Night Live was engaged to Republicans at a recent Facebook hearing on the opening sketch of the second season this season.
The sketch opened with Heidi Gardner appearing as Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, standing in front of “congress” to explain what’s going on at the social media company.
However, the sketch became one where senators asked him about how social media works. The skit also contains numerous references to the Netflix hit Squid game regarding Facebook’s internal working.
“I want to thank Facebook’s whistle blower for moving forward,” said Mikey Day, acting senator Richard Blumenthal. Gardner’s Haugen responded by joking that it was nice to land in an office without “skateboards”.
Cecily Strong, who plays senator Dianne Feinstein, then aimed at Facebook, saying: “What Facebook did is shameful and you better believe Congress will act.
“After we pass the infrastructure bill, raise the debt ceiling, prosecute those responsible for the Jan. 6 uprising and stop Trump from exercising executive privilege, even if he is no longer president. But after all that, watch out, Facebook! ”
The sketch then also features Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, played by Alex Moffat. The staff could be seen staring aimlessly, and at that point Blumenthal said: “No, no, we don’t need more from that person.”
The sketch then moved on to “OG social media king,” Tom from Myspace, played by Pete Davidson.
“Remember me? I was harmless,” Davidson’s character stated. “I’m not doing anything with that weird algorithm stuff. We barely maintain the website. “

He then said, “Come on, check out your friend’s band from 20 years ago” and “make America top eight again.”
Kardashian started the show by delivering a monologue that many social media viewers are quick to praise, with jokes about OJ Simpson, his family and Kanye West.
Soon, a Aladdin-themed sketch with Pete Davidson got more praise from viewers, with fans calling the skit “hilarious” and another joke “it has to come to Disney Plus”. A third Twitter user said: “SNL just hit a home run using this sketch. “
Elsewhere, in one of the most talked about moments of the night, Kim Kardashian played a television judge in a spinoff of a US television show The Court of the People. The spoof, titled, The People’s Kourt as Kourtney Kardashian, Kim is seen in character as her sister Kourtney.
