“Saturday Night Live” did not hesitate to make fun of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in its last episode of “Weekend Update”.
After an eventful week for the social media giant which saw a whistleblower share shocking revelations about the company’s potentially negative impact on national security as well as an outage that shut down its sites for an entire day, the hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che were ready to pounce with some sharp jokes at the expense of the company.
After being the subject of the show’s cold opening, Jost began the segment with a dig at the CEO of Facebook, saying, “This week we found out that sometimes a guy in a hoodie can be dangerous.”
The comedian, who many may not be familiar with, graduated from Harvard University in 2004, noted he was in school around the same time Zuckerberg was sadly creating Facebook there.

“I feel bad,” he said. “Sometimes I wish I had a time machine so I could go back to college and find Mark and say ‘hey man! … Can I be a part of your company?’
Jost also commented on a recent Wall Street Journal report that using Instagram can increase a person’s likelihood of having body image issues.
“Which explains their rival’s new tagline, ‘TikTok, get your fat over here,” he joked.
Che then took the reins and continued to lambast Facebook for its outage last week, which prevented all users from accessing the site or its other apps like WhatsApp and Instagram.
“This week, Instagram was down for an entire day, forcing many Instagram junkies to spend their time with Twitter, TikTok or hosting ‘SNL’,” Che said as a photo of the host of the week , Kim Kardashian, appeared on the screen.
