Saturday Night Live festive cold frankly pulls Kanye West and Elon Musk

Saturday night live impaled Elon Musk and Kanye West in his latest episode.

The penultimate episode of the sketch show’s 48th season aired on Saturday (December 10).

Only murders in the building Stars Steve Martin and Martin Short returned to host, and their co-star Selena Gomez made a surprise cameo to crash the couple’s monologue.

Before her performance, however, the episode began with a cold open.

Set in a Manhattan skyscraper, the sketch featured a group of festive revelers played by Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson and Bowen Yang.

In it, the group discusses recent events, with Strong declaring, “It’s hard not to feel helpless. I always think I should do more for myself, for friends, for society. But then I remember…”

She then bursts out into song, singing, “It’s Christmas and all my stress is gone. All the problems and troubles and crying and tissues can wait until January!”

The song then details all of their personal struggles before saying they can ignore issues like alcoholism and mental health until Christmas.

“My mental health… my mental health wasn’t great. I wake up at noon and the sun kind of goes down, then I fall asleep again around eight. But I can live in a delusional state… at Christmas,” Yang sings.

Later in the musical moment, the group takes aim at Musk and West.

“Elon… why does he own all this stuff? Why does he have to run Tesla and Twitter, wasn’t space enough?” sings strongly.

Yang adds, “And Hitler… since when did Hitler come back? Didn’t we all agree years ago that Hitler should never come back?”

Thompson chimes in: “And why are his new fans black?!”

Earlier this month, during an interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, the rapper admitted he “likes” Hitler.

West, who was fired after a series of anti-Semitic comments from companies including Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga, repeatedly praised the Nazi leader during his appearance on Jones’ show Infowars.

The shocking moment is the latest in a string of recent controversies for West.

The 48th season Saturday night live ends on Saturday 17 December.
