Ayo Edebiri admitted she was wrong after previously dissing Jennifer Lopez’s singing abilities.

The “Bear” star addressed her past criticism of the “I’m Real” songstress while hosting this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” alongside Lopez as the musical guest.

Edebiri appeared with Kenan Thompson, Mikey Day, Andrew Dismukes and Chloe Fineman in a skit called “Why’d You Say It?” where game show contestants were asked to explain their questionable Instagram comments.

“It’s wrong to leave mean comments or post comments just for clout or run your mouth on a podcast and you don’t consider the impact because you’re 24 and stupid,” the comedian, now 28, said during the sketch.

“But I think I speak for everyone when I say from now on, we’re going to be a lot more thoughtful about what we post online,” she added.

Edebiri previously insulted Lopez, 54, during an appearance on the “Scam Goddess” podcast in 2020.

At the time, the “Abbott Elementary” actress called the performer’s career “one long scam” while referencing rumors that the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” hitmaker has used ghost singers to record her music.

“She thinks she’s on multiple tracks, but it’s not her. I think she thinks that she’s still good even though she’s not singing for most of these songs,” Edebiri said.

“A lot of the write-ups of the songs will be like, ‘J.Lo didn’t have time to make it to the studio,’ like, ‘J.Lo was busy,’” she further claimed.

“It’s like, ‘Doing what?’ Not singing, obviously!”

Despite those past comments, the two women appeared to be on good terms when they appeared together in promos for their “SNL” episode.

“I’m really excited. I love your show,” Lopez told the newly crowned Emmy winner. To which Edebiri replied, “I love your everything.”

Meanwhile, the two-time Grammy nominee hit the stage at Studio 8H to debut new music from her forthcoming album, “This Is Me… Now.”

Lopez appeared to suffer an on-air hair malfunction when she was seen pulling out an extension from her head while performing “Can’t Get Enough” with Latto and Redman.

She later returned to the stage in a pink flower-adorned gown to sing the title track from her new project, which drops Feb. 16.
