During “Weekend Update” on the October 16, 2021 edition of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” a report on social media’s reaction to a teaser photo of Timothee Chalamet from the set of “Wonka“, the prequel to “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, which labeled the actor as a “twink Willy Wonka” led anchor Colin Jost to bring on a guest most familiar with the situation: Proud Gay Oompa Loompa (Bowen Yang).
