Tonight on SNL, Weekend Update‘s anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che made every Will Smith joke they’d been holding onto over the course of the past week, following the Oscar winner’s slap of Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.

“Intelligence officials are saying that Vladimir Putin is being misinformed by his advisors about how badly the Russian military is performing in Ukraine,” said Jost up top, “which is kind of like Will Smith’s agent telling him, ‘You crushed it at the Oscars!”

Jost said that from his perspective, Smith’s actions were “disgraceful”—particularly because his actions set “a terrible precedent for having to defend your wife at awards shows.”

Che noted that during his acceptance speech after landing the award for Best Actor, the King Richardstar said, “Love will make you do crazy things.”

“You know what else makes you do crazy things? Crazy,” he joked. “But I understand where Will’s coming from. I mean, you can’t expect him to sit there and watch another man jump all over his wife—without signing an NDA.”

Yesterday, Jost continued, Smith resigned from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, before the awards body could expel him. “He wasn’t going to,” said Jost, “but then Jada gave him that look.”

If Smith had been expelled, Jost noted, he would have joined “a small group” of people that have been kicked out of the Academy, which includes Bill Cosby, Roman Polanski and Harvey Weinstein. “Or, as they’re also known, ‘Bad Boys For Life.'”

Che went on to talk about alopecia, the health condition that served as the basis for Rock’s joke at Jada Pinkett Smith’s expense, which in turn led to the comic’s altercation with her husband. “Can we stop pretending everybody knew Jada had alopecia? I mean, as much as we’ve heard about Jada and Will’s personal lives, you can’t expect us to retain everything,” he said. “It’s like Kanye saying, ‘Don’t act like y’all don’t know I had psoriasis!'”
