During ‘Weekend Update’, a segment on the sketch comedy series, host Michael Che invited Ego Nwodim, who was dressed as Jada, to the panel.
Nwodim immediately poked fun at Jada's previous statements while promoting her upcoming book, Worthy.
“If I look tired, it’s because I’ve been on the Today show 15 times this week,” she said, poking fun at Jada's bombshell interview with Today host Hoda Kotb.
“The day we got married, I knew there was going to be trouble. At our wedding, someone stood up and objected,” Nwodim said as Jada.
The comedian then seemingly referenced the actor’s remarks about working hard to save her and Will’s marriage.
“Twenty-three years later, Will and I are still a unit. And it’s because we have learned that the secret to a successful marriage is never go to bed happy,” Nwodim continued.
She added that she is finally ‘in a solid, fortified place’ after ‘publicly cucking [her] millionaire husband.’
I mean 11/10 line.
The comedian then spoke on divorce after Jada revealed that she and the Independence Day star would never officially split despite living separate lives for the past seven years.
“If we got divorced, he could mess around and end up happy. And I can’t have that,” the SNL star added.
“It was the first time in years that I felt like his wife. And now I am so clear on what to do if we ever start drifting apart again,” the comedian told Che.
“The next time we hit a rough patch, I’m going to ask Will to shoot Kevin Hart.”
Many took to X, formerly known as Twitter, revealing the segment left them in stitches.
One person wrote: “Like life imitating art, Jada has literally become a Gotham City villain.”
Another said: “This was the funniest part of ‘Weekend Update’ tonight; Ego didn't do a great Jada, but she was hilarious anyway."
A third commented: “This is actually so funny if you’ve paid any attention to Jada in the media within the last month.”
While another shared: “I am screaming.”
Jada has not publicly responded to the Ego's impersonation; however, she’s probably penciling in another Today show interview with Hoda as we speak.
