'SNL Finale': Hosts poke fun at Elon Musk and Grimes's baby name, call it 'child services number'
Colin Jost and Michael Che had some thoughts about the baby name in the weekend update
'Saturday Night Live' finale left people laughing as various segments made sure they stuck to the point. The most awaited 'Weekend Update' did not hold back in recalling everything that happened throughout the week. Colin Jost and Michael Che, hosts for the weekend update, did not fail to draw the viewers' attention to the name Elon Musk and Grimes chose for their son.
Musk and Grimes had announced they are naming their child X Æ A-12. Ever since this announcement was made, people have been scratching their heads as to what the name meant and how it was pronounced. While Grimes tried to explain how one could pronounce this name, the SNL cast did not think it was a wise idea to name their son that.
Jost thought that it sounded more like a number that one uses to call child services. Che also agreed as the two seemed shocked by why one would choose that as a name for a baby. Meanwhile, the segment also touched upon the importance of having a female president after Joe Biden was accused of sexual assault by Tara Reade.
Jost hinted that Biden would not remember an event like this, especially if he had a conversation with someone called Reade. He added that there were higher chances of Biden recalling an event with a person named 'waffle fries Johnson' than someone named Reade. Jost thought it would be a good idea to have a female president as situations like this won't take place.
He thought that women know what is consent and it would make sure that problems such as this don't happen in the future. Meanwhile, Che touched upon the most talked-about situation — the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. Arbery was shot dead by two men as he was jogging and the news caused a lot of international attention.
Che tried to bring attention to how people of color often face struggles. He joked about his situation while adding that he tries his best not to look suspicious as he is walking through his white neighborhood while adding that jogging was the least suspicious thing that one could do. While he did not speak much on the topic, the weekend update sure did manage to give people a lot to think about.
