Last week, we told you that the Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty was under investigation for potentially assaulting a 13-year old boy at the Wells Fargo Center.

On Saturday during their Weekend Update segment, Saturday Night Live poked fun at the story.

This isn't the first time SNL has taken aim at Gritty.  The popular mascot was also featured on Weekend Update in Sept. 2018.

 

Gritty also made it on Weekend Update in December 2018.

And last May, SNL cast member Kenan Thompson invited Gritty to host the show.

 



According to the Flyers'
website, Gritty is "talented but feisty," "loyal but mischevious," and "humorous and strange."  This season, fans are able to get a Gritty Makeover during Flyers' home games.  Click
