    Shane Gillis Fired from ‘Saturday Night Live’ After Old Jokes Surface

    David Ng 16 Sep 2019




    His departure comes just fours days after Saturday Night Live announced that Gillis was joining the cast for the show’s new season, set to start Sept. 28.

    “After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL,” a show spokesperson said on behalf of producer Lorne Michaels, in a statement.

    “We want SNL to have a variety of voices and points of view within the show, and we hired Shane on the strength of his talent as comedian and his impressive audition for SNL. We were not aware of his prior remarks that have surfaced over the past few days. The language he used is offensive, hurtful and unacceptable. We are sorry that we did not see these clips earlier, and that our vetting process was not up to our standard.”

    Gillis was fired despite issuing an apology last week.

    “I’m a comedian who pushed boundaries. I sometimes miss,” Gillis said. “If you go through my 10 years of comedy, most of it bad, you’re going to find a lot of bad misses. I’m happy to apologize to anyone who’s actually offended by anything I’ve said. My intention is never to hurt anyone, but I am trying to be the best comedian I can be and sometimes hat requires risks.”


    The media backlash against Gillis began almost immediately after Saturday Night Live announced that he was joining the cast.

    A video clip from Gillis’ Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast resurfaced in which the comedian is heard talking about New York’s Chinatown.

    “Let the fucking ch-nks live there,” Gillis said, adding that a restaurant was “full of fucking Chinee [sic] in there.”

    The podcast series also featured Gillis using the words “retard” and “faggot.”

    Despite numerous calls for him to be fired, Gillis found one defender — Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

    “For the record, I don’t think he should lose his job,” Yang tweeted. “We would benefit from being more forgiving than punitive. We are all human.”

    Interesting.

    I don't recall that New York Times editor being fired when her racist tweets surfaced, and those weren't even being said in jest - they were mean spirited racist garbage.

    Double standard, anyone?
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Well, speaking only for myself, I'm not that thin skinned to give a rat's ass. I've never felt triggered when guys like Eddie Murphy or Richard Pryor made jokes at whitey's expense.

    Asians have a higher income than any other group in the country. They are more educated than any other group in the country. How is making jokes of the most "privileged" group in the nation now a reason to fire someone. Also, it's comedy. If this was an asian comic making fun of white people, would he have been fired? What if it was a female asian comic? Same result. If there's a chance the answer is no (and we all know it is) then you know there is a real problem out there.

    Comedy is destroying comedy. SNL shouldn't have moved on from him. He's a comic. Let people complain, just ignore them.

    Are they going to remove DECADES of skits from their own website? How about put them in a vault and throw away the key?

    Hypocrisy. If SNL thinks this is over, they’re wrong. Now that they’ve given in, they’re at the mercy of this Frankenstein’s monster.

    Nice. They force him to say he's sorry like a little bitch... and still tell him he's out of a job.

    Why is it when anyone on the left apologies for their transgressions... everything is always honky dory and the issue just fades away?

    I'd better watch that new Dave Chappelle comedy special before someone let's Netflix know what their showing.

    Actually, and he can correct me if I'm wrong, RnB has lived a pretty rough life. He's only mentioned it once or twice and I don't ever see him playing the victim or pulling the "woe is me" crap.

    I don't always agree with his language and posts but to fucking call him privileged is absolutely ridiculous. Especially when you know nothing about the guy except for your assumption that he's white.

    This is the kind of crap I'm talking about jape as far as why certain posters get the responses they do.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
