Okay, so the headline might be a bit hyperbolic, but when roughly half of the new cast members from last season’s Saturday Night Live are let go, it won’t go unnoticed. Brooks Wheelan, Noël Wells, and John Milhiser have been let go from the long running series, ending their run after only one season. The three players, along with Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, and Mike O’Brien, were part of a controversial new SNL group, seeing as how only one of them was a woman, and, oh yeah, all of them were white. Sasheer Zamata was later added to address the issue, but even then she was relegated to background roles. Hopefully this will either 1) reduce the size of the entire cast and give everyone more opportunities to perform or 2) bring in other minority talent.
As for the departed, they’re screwed. Let’s face it, if you’ve only been on SNL for a single season, your life has ended. Those three can join the ranks of these talent-less sacks of monkey crap.
Welcome to the turd pile, guys. CAREER OVER.
