Returning to the nickname “The Juice”, the former footballer added that Smith’s response was “man” but Oliver was not impressed.

“No, you don’t, Oz, you don’t,” he said. “No one wants to hear from you about this – especially when you seem to be coming live from a senator frog’s covid patio. You can just sit out this one. Think of this situation as a chaotic bachelorette ordering a mimosa: we want as little juice here as humanely possible. “

Following the incident, Smith resigned from the academy, which initiated disciplinary action against the “King Richard” actor after meeting with his board of governors.

“Saturday Night Live” also joked about the incident during this weekend’s show and saw Kenan Thompson disguise Simpson during the “Weekend Update” as he weighed in on Smith’s apparent “rage” issues.
