Here’s Why SNL’s First Latino Writer Apologized Again And Again During His ‘Late Night’ Spot

Food is no joke around most Latino households. At every family reunion, we all bring our own dishes and end up walking away with more leftovers than we can carry. And you can be sure that meat is one of the stars of almost every dish. Vegan is dirty word you don’t say in front my parents or abuela — or anyone for that matter.

On a recent episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Salvadoran comedian Julio Torres talked about being vegan.

A writer for Saturday Night Live, Torres understands that satirizing oneself is the best way to get the laughs.

Torres gave the audience a little insight into what makes being vegan so difficult.

Anyone who is vegan or has a vegan friend can probably relate to Torres. Being a vegan among meat eaters can make for a difficult dining experience.

Torres then answered the question he gets all the time.

Torres then clarified.

Torres’ really packs a ton of humor into his soft-spoken delivery, so do yourself a favor and watch the performance here!

Torres covered several more topics that are all worth a listen and a laugh. The audience clearly loved his deadpan, soft-spoken delivery which really sells his jokes. For a someone who was once almost deported, it’s great to see how far he’s come.

Bad Bunny Nearly Kissed Rosalía During His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

Bad Bunny made his Saturday Night Live debut on Feb. 20 as a musical guest. As expected, he was joined by Spanish singer Rosalía for a steamy performance of their duet “La Noche de Anoche.”

Bad Bunny and Rosalía turned up the heat on SNL.

As we predicted, one of Bad Bunny’s two performances was for his latest El Último Tour Del Mundo hit “La Noche de Anoche” with Rosalía. Both artists stared into each other’s eyes as they performed the reggaeton bop. The crowd screamed when Rosalía sang, “Dime papi.” Benito and Rosalía took the embracing from the music video to the next level when they nearly kissed at the end of the performance. There was a lot of brushing of their cheeks that had the crowd screaming more.

Bad Bunny and Rosalía’s romance for “La Noche de Anoche” is just for on-screen purposes. Benito is in a relationship with his girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri and Rosalía is rumored to be going out with Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro. She has uncredited backing vocals on Alejandro’s song “Dile a Él” from his Afrodisíaco album.

For his second performance, Bad Bunny opted for a ballad.

Currently Bad Bunny has the biggest hit Latin song in the world with “Dákiti” featuring Jhay Cortez. For his second performance, he opted to perform the heartbreaking ballad “Te Deseo Lo Mejor.” With that song he was able to show off the alternative rock edge to his El Último Tour Del Mundo album.

In the episode of SNL hosted by Bridgerton star Rége-Jean Page, Bad Bunny also acted in the digital skit “Loco.” He played a house plant that encouraged Ego Nwodim to “buss it down if you’re mentally ill.”

In other Bad Bunny news, he retained his 24/7 Championship belt during last night’s WWE Elimination Chamber special. He notably slapped his rival on the series, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, in the face.

What can’t Bad Bunny do?

Will Rosalía Join Bad Bunny for His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut?

Will Rosalía Join Bad Bunny for His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut?

Bad Bunny will make his Saturday Night Live debut this week. As the musical guest, there’s a chance Spanish singer Rosalía could join him for one of his performances.

Bridgerton‘s Regé-Jean Page will host the SNL episode.

SNL announced on the last episode that Bad Bunny will be the musical guest on Feb. 20. Regé-Jean Page, the star of the hit Netflix show Bridgerton, will host the episode.

Bad Bunny and Rosalía premiered their “La Noche de Anoche” video on Valentine’s Day.

The current single the Puerto Rican superstar is pushing from his latest album El Último Tour Del Mundo is “La Noche de Anoche” featuring Rosalía. As a Valentine’s Day gift to their fans, they premiered the music video for the reggaeton romp. In the Salvador Dali-inspired visual, Benito and Rosalía embrace and set each other ablaze. The heat between the two in the song was undeniable, but now the flames are jumping out.

There is a hope that Rosalía could join Bad Bunny on SNL.

The biggest Latin music song in the world right now belongs to Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Puerto Rican singer Jhay Cortez. Benito is looking to follow-up that success with “La Noche de Anoche,” which peaked at No. 53 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart without a music video.

Usually the musical guest on SNL gets two performances during the show. With the new “La Noche de Anoche” video out, Bad Bunny could get the song more in front of a global audience if Rosalía joins him for one of those performances. It will be interesting in general to see which two songs Benito decides to perform.

In other Bad Bunny news, he won the 24/7 Championship belt on Monday night during WWE Raw. Not a bad start to what is sure to be a big week in this multi-hyphenate star’s career.
