NEW YORK, Oct. 5 (UPI) — In the promo for the upcoming “Saturday Night Live” episode, Lin-Manuel Miranda was not thrilled about Cecily Strong’s portrayal of him in a recent sketch.

“Lin, you know I played you in a sketch last week,” Strong said in the skit which featured the two sitting at a table in a restaurant, ready to order food. “You’re not upset, right? You know it’s all in good fun?”

“No, I was really flattered,” Miranda reassured her.

Once the waiter came for their order, however, Miranda’s true feelings came out.

The “Hamilton” star ordered a burger for himself and then turned to Strong.

“And she’ll have, let see, what do jerks like to eat?” Miranda asked the waiter.

“I guess she’ll have a double order of, I hate you!” he yelled before storming off.

“He seemed mad, right?” Strong asked the waiter.

Miranda is set to host Saturday’s episode which also features musical guest 21 Pilots.
