SNL Spoofs Fake Sign Language Interpreter Skit

WATCH: 'Saturday Night Live' fake interpreter from Nelson Mandela funeral strikes again.

NEW YORK CITY -- 'Saturday Night Live' kicked off its John Goodman-helmed episode with President Obama (Jay Pharoah) lamenting the "series of unfortunate events" that happened at the memorial for Nelson Mandela.

First of all, there was that selfie with the Danish Prime Minister, then the handshake with Raul Castro ("He told me he was Edward James Olmos,") and finally, the sign language interpreter who didn't appear to know sign language. Naturally, after mentioning him, Thamsanqa Jantjie (Kenan Thompson) appeared behind the POTUS and proceeded to "loosely" interpret the rest of the speech.

Most importantly, 'SNL' reminded us that lost amongst all the hoopla were the feelings of poor Angela Merkel, he never got her selfie with Obama, even after he spied on her.

An SNL interpreter skit is making people laugh all across the United States of America this week, as SNL decided to make a parody of the #fakeinterpreter who made off-key signs at the memorial service following the recent death of Nelson Mandela. The video is swiftly making the rounds online over the debacle, and viewers are saying that it’s crazy to think that this spoof really isn’t that far off the mark of what really happened with the schizophrenic sign language “expert” last week.

The SNL interpreter skit comes at a time that many citizens across the globe are still mourning the tragic loss of Nelson Mandela, but both the Deaf and others were recently shocked at the real-life debacle of what happened with the sign language interpreter at the peaceful man’s memorial service. Thamsanga Jantjie says he has gone to School Specialized for the Deaf and is skilled in the use of sign language, but the South African actually used bogus signs throughout the service.

Now, Jantjie is adding that he suffers from schizophrenia, and during the speech, the dubbed fake interpreter was having insane visions of flying angels coming into the stadium, preventing him from signing properly. Of course, SNL decided to make a skit of this interpreter’s debacle, and the result is very funny...
