Disney If there's one lesson people who come in contact with The Mandalorian should learn, it's this: Do NOT mess with Baby Yoda. The beloved little green guy (whose real name we still don't know), may be 50 years old, but in his species, that's still a baby, and he's also the cutest darn baby in the Star Wars universe. Do not chase him, drop him, poke him or threaten to experiment on him because Mando (Pedro Pascal) and his ragtag band of pals will make you pay. It's a lesson comedian, actor and Saturday Night Live vet Jason Sudeikis should have learned before now.

Warning: Mild spoilers for the season finale of The Mandalorian ahead. 

So in the opening scene of the first-season finale, made available on the Disney Plus streaming service Friday, Baby Yoda has been snatched away by two scout troopers, played by Sudeikis and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project). They're hidden in trooper armor, so you can't see their faces, but neither of them are too fond of the little guy. Both of them punch -- yes, punch -- the bag containing Baby Yoda, Sudeikis to keep him quiet and Pally after he prods the little dude and gets his finger bitten for doing so.

But Sudeikis and Pally may never be forgiven for those punches. Even Sudeikis' comedy alma mater, The Second City, apologized for 007카지노 its alum's behavior.

"The Second City does not condone the punching of Baby Yoda by alumnus Jason Sudeikis," the group said in a tweet sent Friday. "Please respect our privacy during this difficult time."

— The Second City (@TheSecondCity) December 27, 2019 A representative for Sudeikis didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. But come on, you just can't pound on the internet's beloved baby like that and expect to get away with it. "Dear Jason Sudeikis, if you hit Baby Yoda one more time, I will find you... and destroy you," wrote one Twitter user.
