Ryan Lochte Reacts to Seth MacFarlane's Parody on <i>SNL</i>

Saturday Night Live isn’t known for holding back when it comes to impersonating pop-culture figures. This past Saturday was no exception, as the show spoofed Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, who apparently found the the impersonation a bit harsh.

Seth MacFarlane, the host for the season premiere, parodied Lochte during “Weekend Update.” MacFarlane painted Lochte as a dumb (but lovable) athlete who didn’t know that the word “good” was one word and who really just wanted a juice box.

While it might not of painted him in the best light, Lochte has to feel good knowing that he has left his mark on pop culture.

“Well, I gotta admit that was a pretty harsh one, but it’s cool to have Seth parody me,” Lochte told Celebuzz. “I think he pegged me wrong, but when I heard he did a skit I knew I was in for it!”

Check out MacFarlane’s hilarious impression of Lochte below and be sure to tune into NBC on Saturday for Saturday Night Live.
