Yang's viral "Weekend Update" appearance prompted many to ask why Yang isn't yet a full-time cast member. (Yang is in his second season. It typically takes two seasons to become a regular cast member.) "Another weekend, another Saturday Night Live episode stolen by Bowen Yang," says Sonia Rao. "When Yang appeared on 'Weekend Update' two weeks ago to urge viewers to 'do more' in wake of the uptick in anti-Asian hate crimes, he said he would rather have been doing his character, gay Passover bunny. He got his wish for a silly role Saturday night, returning to the desk for the 109th anniversary of the Titanic’s demise to play the iceberg that sank the British luxury liner."
