Saturday Night Live made fun of the story out of North Dakota last week involving a 19-year-old football player that claims he was kicked off his college football team for being gay.

North Dakota State College of Science linebacker Jamie Kuntz said he admitted to his coach that he had a 65-year-old boyfriend and was removed from the team.

The Inforum says SNL's Seth Meyers jokes about the relationship between Kuntz and his boyfriend during his Weekend Watch segment.

“Replied the 65-year-old man, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, boyfriend? We’re having fun here, just, I’m not into labels,’” Meyers said.
