The fifty-two-year-old returned to the Saturday Night Live stage.

Where we were taken back in time to witness the first-ever dinner in 1621.

Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen also reunited with Will as they returned to the stage once again.

In the skit, twelve-year-old Pocahontas brings home her thirty-year-old boyfriend John Smith for the first time.

Grandpa Will is immediately suspicious of the “pale-faced" John Smith, played by Beck Bennett.
via: YoutubeHe accuses Smith of stealing buffalos, land, and “those blankets that are getting everybody sick."
Which was followed by a not so subtle jab at Fox News...
via: Youtube“Who told you the blankets are getting people sick?" Maya asked, as Will quickly interjected, “The Fox he knows what’s up…since when is it our job to take care of this world’s problems?"
Beck’s John then returns to the table after running to the bathroom multiple times, which was a little too much info for a tea-time sketch.

It turns out he wasn’t alone, as Fred’s character exclaimed “yeah, that happens to me too!"
via: YoutubeA the end of the sketch, Will broke the fourth wall and addressed the audience directly.
To express his thoughts...
via: Youtube“If you’re anything like me, you know there’s a lot of problems in this crazy, crazy sketch," he began.
The thought was there, although fans weren't so sure...
via: Youtube“I mean, white actors, playing Natives, what is this — 2014? But no matter what year it is, or what color we are — whether we get our news from a fox or a peacock — one thing is for sure: none of us can digest corn."
Fans had plenty to say about the not-so-politically correct skit on Twitter...
