SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE PRODUCER LORNE MICHAELS FINALLY WISED UP

lakendra_tookes_les#17Ecut

Lorne Michaels finally came to his senses and acknowledged that Saturday Night Live had a glaring shortage of diversity – particularly women of color. (He was reminded very publicly, and wisely chose to act upon it.) After secret auditions he hired Sasheer Zamata as a new cast member, but there’s a bonus. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michaels apparently found more talent than he expected among minority women, and he added TWO black female writers to the staff! (LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Jones, above) Now THAT’S a step in the right direction.

    Yippie, Now we can have a even more unfunny ghettoized version of SNL. Here’s a novel idea, how bout hiring FUNNY people without regard to their color?

    Bingo! But that won’t work with the pc crowd. They want a multi color and preferably lesbos and trannys and gay group!

    The only time SNL is funny is when Timberlake and Fallon show up.

    the fat black guy has been on SNL since forever and he is not funny and is very annoying.They should hire comedians based upon their talent not their race.

    To repeat: Bingo! But that won’t work with the pc crowd. They want a multi color and preferably lesbos and trannys and gay group!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
