Bowen Yang had fans rolling when he played the iceberg who sunk the Titanic during “Weekend Update” on Saturday Night Live.

Saying he stopped by for an interview to promote his new album, Yang’s iceberg said he did not want to talk about the sinking of the historic ship, which occurred April 14, 1912.

“That was a really long time ago. I’ve done a lot of reflecting to try and move past it,” he said to big laughs. “It’s one very small part me, but there’s so much going on beneath the surface that you can’t see.”

Yang’s iceberg snapped at Colin Jost’s line of questions about the Titanic with, “I think my publicist was very clear: I’m not here to talk about the sinking,” before getting into the details of the incident from his point of view.

“First of all, you came to where I live and you hit me! It was midnight. I was chilling. And then I hear this Irish cacophony behind me,” he explained. “And before I turn around and go, like, ‘What?’ Half my ass is gone, which was my best feature. And I’m literally injured but all anybody cares about is that like 40 or 50 people died or whatever.”

Yang was trending on Twitter Sunday morning for the hilarious bit and a tweet from the show with the segment had more than 25,000 likes alone.

Yang — SNL’s first Asian American cast member — has quickly become a fan favorite with his impressions, such as Fran Lebowitz, and also for recently speaking his mind about the increase of anti-Asian assaults and harassment during the pandemic.
