Morgan Wallen mocks himself in SNL sketch about breaking COVID-19 protocols
The country star spoofed the viral videos showing him partying without a mask and failing to social distance, shortly before his scheduled appearance.
In the sketch, Wallen is at an Alabama bar where he's met by two future versions of himself (played by host Jason Bateman and Bowen Yang), who warn him that the events of that night will affect his future. Pete Davidson also appears as a pot-smoking bar goer.
During the sketch, Bateman's character places the blame on NBC executives for the decision to not have Wallen appear earlier this fall.
"Once people hear about the party, you're in big trouble man. You're going to get kicked off Saturday Night Live," Bateman says. Wallen responds, "Nah, nah, nah. [Creator] Lorne [Michaels] would never do that. Bateman agree Michael's "would never do that" but adds, "the execs at NBC, they're going to force his hand, bro."
