He apologized (read: admitted guilt)

Like a tent.

Stick a fork in 'em.

Next step is either:

A) SNL says we’s only joking and replaces Shane with a gay Pygmy amputee. Shane gets to continue being an actual comic.

B) They actually stand behind their decision and Woke Inc. boycotts SNL which has been shit for decades.

For me that’s win-win

I love the irony of everyone calling Shane racist, yet all they focus on regarding another SNL hire is that he's Asian. Not a single mention of his talent deserving the position.

People posting on Twitter about Warren and Beta changing positions on issues and the Lefty's all come to their defense with "but they've evolved since then". Where was the outrage over conservatives getting deplatformed over something for m 10 years ago?

Comedian Shane Gillis won't be part of Saturday Night Live after coming under fire for using racial and homophobic slurs during a conversation on a podcast.

"After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL," said a show spokesperson on behalf of executive producer Lorne Michaels. "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, one of three new SNL castmembers announced Thursday, can be heard using a racial slur in a since-deleted video from 2018 on a YouTube channel called "Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast."

"Chinatown’s fucking nuts," Gillis says in a segment of the video dated on Sept. 26, 2018. "Let the fucking ch---s live there." The video also shows Gillis mimicking a Chinese accent and mocking Chinese restaurants.

Additional audio from a separate 2018 episode of "Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast" shows Gillis and co-host Matt McCusker ranking how funny comedians are by race and using homophobic slurs. While referencing comedians like Judd Apatow, Gillis calls them "white faggot comics" and "fucking gayer than ISIS."

Gillis took to his Twitter account to issue a statement, tweeting "I'm a comedian who pushes boundaries. I sometimes miss. 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 that requires risks."

Gillis is the latest comedian to deal with backlash over past offensive comments. Trevor Noah was criticized ahead of replacing Jon Stewart on Comedy Central's The Daily Show over old tweets, including ones deemed antisemitic or offensive towards aboriginal women. Kevin Hart gave up his Oscars hosting gig this year when homophobic tweets of his resurfaced.

SNL returns Sept. 28 for its 45th season with host Woody Harrelson and musical guest Billie Eilish.

Fucking ridiculous.

Couldn't see it going any other way. They didn't mention if the person who hired him was fired. Surely, they were fired too.

Is getting on SNL even the feather in a comedian’s cap that it used to be?

Or they had a win win on their hands. Either hire a good comedian or get an opportunity to gain favor with the diversity crowd.

Five minutes of vetting would have found Shane saying something "offensive".

Thank god, now he can continue to be funny.

Also, I'm a Mad TV man myself.

SNL definitely would have made him a worse comedian. And he had a presidential candidate talking about him on CNN, so people know who he is now.

This whole episode will make him a better comic. You can see him holding back on Skanks or Real Ass Podcast from time to time for fear of being too offensive. No more of that.

Do you think Eddie Murphy will be allowed to host? He's said far worse than Shane.

Woody Harrelson has been arrested like 5 times and he can host?
