When the group asks for his Instagram handle, he shares, "It's Hamas, H-a-m-a-s."

"Yeah, dude, I'm not sharing a song by Hamas on Instagram," Martin Herlihy of Please Don't Destroy replies.

The tone-deaf bit and SNL was harshly criticized by fans on X.

One fan wrote, "SNL and Timothée Chalamet dropping Hamas jokes amidst a war that has so far claimed the lives of more than 4,000 children is vile. Whole families are being wiped out and 242 people are still being held hostage by Hamas."

He has not commented on the controversy.
