In his opening monologue, Bad Bunny spoke about his excitement at being the host of SNL and his pride in his Puerto Rican heritage. He also poked fun at himself and his lack of English fluency.
“People are wondering I can’t host this show because English is not my first language,” Bad Bunny said. “I don’t know if they know but I do whatever I want. I can host this show in English. I can order McDonald’s in English. I can have sex in English. But I prefer sex in Spanish because it’s just better.”
