Adele hosted the latest episode. It had familiar characters such as Kate McKinnon and Heidi Gardner. Talks were going on about white women touring Africa to have sex with African men. Also, several references to bamboo were made, and tribesmen were highlighted too.

While the three women performed in the skit, black men were escorting the white women in the background. Thus, it received criticism from many on social media. People called it a poor script, especially when there is chaos in Nigeria.
