AceShowbiz - In the wake of the NAACP Image Awards, which took place on Saturday, March 30, "Saturday Night Live" offerred another take on Jussie Smollett's infamous fake attack case. Alongside that night's host Sandra Oh, the cast members of the long-running NBC comedy show roasted the "Empire" actor, who was nominated for category of Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the award event, in a skit called "Network Meeting".
The skit featured Sandra, who played Jussie's manager, joining Kenan Thompson's Lee Daniels, Kate McKinnon's Ego Nwodim and Mikey Day who portrayed a FOX executive in a meeting. They were getting pissed as Jussie was late for the meeting with Sandra trying to defend her client.
"Jussie Smollet was the victim. Mr. Daniels, I have represented Jussie his entire career. I'm sure there is a very reasonable explanation why he was so late right now," Sandra said. "Well I just hope it's not some crazy excuses," Kenan's Lee responded before wounded Jussie, played by cast member Chris Redd, made an entrance.
"Guys, you are not gonna believe what just happened to me," Chris' Jussie said, earning sigh and groan from others. Insisting it was not like what the others thought, the show's version of the disgraced actor explained, "I got attacked again!"
When others didn't take his words for it, Jussie raised his voice and emphasized again that he was just being attacked. Sandra's character then tried to talk to Chris' Jussie who claimed to be the gay Tupac Shakur. Instead of listening to her, the faux Jussie tried to convince others by providing a "bag of clues" from the "killer" in the form of a grey trash bag.
He, who also claimed to be the gay Mike Tyson, then whipped out the contents which included a box of Crest White Strips, three letter K's, and "the gay Teletubby." The bag also had a receipt, poking fun at reports which suggested that Jussie paid his brothers to buy the supplies for the attack.
As everyone turned against him, Chris' Jussie stormed off the room only to come back with a neck brace.
