"Saturday Night Live" kicked off the episode by poking fun at Lil Nas X's controversial music video and Satan shoes.

In a segment titled "Oops, You Did It Again," hosted by Britney Spears (Chloe Fineman), Lil Nas X, portrayed by Chris Redd, opened up about the backlash surrounding his "Satan shoes," which were decorated with a pentagram pendant, an inverted cross on the tongue pull-tab and a drop of human blood.

"Is it true that they're Nikes made with human blood?" Spears asked.

"Yeah, but I don't know why Nike's so mad," Lil Nas X responded, referencing the company's recent lawsuit against MSCHF, the Brooklyn-based street company selling the modified version of Nike Air Max 97s with satanic symbolism.

"Their whole thing is 'just do it.' Well, I did it."
