RYAN LOCHTE thinks SETH MACFARLANE‘s parody of him on “Saturday Night Live” was pretty harsh.
Well, they were joking after all…
In the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live,” Seth MacFarlane mocked the gold medalist by impersonating him while giving a hilarious “preview” of NBC’s new fall shows for “Weekend Update” anchor, Seth Myers. But while the “Family Guy” creator cracked up thousands of audiences, the gold medalist found the parody pretty cruel.
In addition to “Lochte” saying how “it feels so weird to be dry,” the swimmer told Myers after being asked about his busy summer:
“I was America in Olympics.”
During his introduction of new NBC shows like “Animal Practice” as “Monkey Hospital,” MacFarlane (as Lochte) also said he was “excited about the show ‘Goon,’” which he explained was actually called “Go On.”
The real Ryan Lochte reacted about the parody to Celebuzz, saying:
“Well I gotta admit that was a pretty harsh one, but it’s cool to have Seth parody me. I think he pegged me wrong.”
But Lochte was still a good sport, adding (and referencing the show’s “Go-od” joke):
“It’s all in fun and, of course, if I’m talked about on ‘SNL,’ I know they are gonna get me ‘Go-od.’”
