“Saturday Night Live” has slammed Jada Pinkett Smith over her comments about Will Smith.

During “Weekend Update,” a segment of the comedy series, host Michael Che invited Ego Nwodim to the panel, dressed as Jada.

Nwodim was quick to ridicule Jada’s previous statements while promoting her upcoming book: Worthy.

“If I look tired, it’s because I’ve been on Today show 15 times this week,” she said, mocking Jada’s bombshell interview with Today host Hoda Kotb.

“The day we got married, I knew there would be problems. At our wedding, someone stood up and objected,” said Nwodim as Jada.

The comedian then apparently referenced the actor’s comments about how he worked hard to save her and Will’s marriage.

“Twenty-three years later, Will and I are still united. And this is because we realized that the secret to a successful marriage is to never go to bed happy,” Nwodim continued.

She added that she was finally “in a strong, fortified place” after “publicly mentoring (her) millionaire husband.”

The comedian then opened up about the divorce after Jada revealed that she and independence Day the star never officially split, despite living a separate life for the past seven years.

“If we got divorced, he could work things out and end up happy. And I can’t allow that,” SNL added the star.

“For the first time in many years I felt like his wife. And now I understand so clearly what to do if we ever start growing apart again,” the comedian told Che.

“Next time we have a difficult situation, I’ll ask Will to shoot Kevin Hart.”

Many took to X, formerly known as Twitter, and found that the segment left them confused.

One person wrote: “Like life imitating art, Jada has literally become the villain of Gotham City.”

Another said: “This was the funniest part of today’s Weekend Update; Ego didn’t play Jada very well, but she was still funny.”

A third commented: “Actually this is so funny if you’ve been paying attention to Jada in the media over the last month.”

Another shared: “I’m screaming.”

Jada has not publicly responded to Ego’s impersonation; however, she is probably penciling something else Today show the interview with Hoda now.
