SNL took on controversial chef Paula Deen this week in a sketch we can’t imagine the high fat loving foodie will enjoy.

Kristen Wiig (as Deen) joins Seth Meyers to discuss the recent sexual harassment allegations and racism charges plaguing the already troubled chef. Since revealing that she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes three years ago at the same time as she announced her endorsement deal with a diabetes drug, Deen has been a target of ridicule.

Showing just what much of the public thinks of Deen, Wiig came on camera with a chicken leg in one hand and a stick of butter in the other. When Meyers asks her about the accusation that she used the “n” word, Wiig says, “Hot butter and oil, Sam! Which “n” word is she talking about? There’s a whole bunch of “n” words.” Meyers replies, “Well, the bad one.” Wiig says, “Like nutrition?”

Check out the clip below. We’re sure you’ll laugh.
