The Tiger Woods scandal provided plenty of comedic fodder for "Saturday Night Live" this week as the cast mocked Woods’ car crash and affair allegations.
This weekend’s show was hosted by “Gossip Girl” cast-member Blake Lively, who - with her long blonde hair - stepped in as the perfect double in skits involving Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren.
In a skit featuring a Tiger Woods’ press conference with CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” Lively stood by cast member Kenan Thompson, who played Woods. In the skit Tiger is portrayed as apologizing for his “multiple transgressions,” to which Lively’s Nordegrin looks angry and shocked.
The scene then cut away to a news studio before rejoining an injured Woods holding another press conference outside his Florida home. The supposedly terrified Woods, played by Thompson with his arm in a sling, held up covert signs for camera that were hidden from his wife saying, “I’m scared.”
The skit continued with Lively's Nordegren chasing Woods from the press conference in a rage.
The jabs continued in the “Weekend Update” news report where anchor Seth Meyers referred to Woods’ car accident and said: “Last Friday, Tiger Woods hit a tree and a bunch of ladies fell out.”
The jokes come as women continue to allege that they had affairs with the professional golfer following his admission of “transgressions” last week. The controversy first erupted over the Thanksgiving holiday when Woods sustained injuries in a car accident outside his Florida home.
