LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Michigan State University’s display of Adolf Hitler onto the Spartan Stadium videoboard ahead of its rivalry football game on Oct. 21 has made it into the script of the Oct. 28 Saturday Night Live recording.
Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” sketch anchor Colin Jost read the news saying, “Michigan State apologized after an image of Adolf Hitler appeared on a stadium video board at a football game. Even more upsetting, it was during the Kiss Cam.”
The comedy sketch went on to show a simulated image of a woman’s reaction while being shown next to Hitler on a “Kiss Cam.”
The controversial projection of Hitler’s image, which was part of a pregame trivia quiz from an outside YouTube channel, has been the subject of commentary by everyone from MSU’s Board of Trustees to MSU alumnus Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
MSU has since then suspended an unnamed employee who they said was involved in the incident.
