Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan And Lorne Michaels Have Been Added As Defendants In The Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Horatio Sanz
Once again, Saturday Night Live alum Horatio Sanz is making headlines for allegedly grooming a 15-year-old girl and sexually assaulting her at an SNL cast party when she was 17. I say “once again” but that is literally the only reason Horatio has ever made a headline in his entire career. With a legacy like that, you’d think his old pals at SNL might have all come down with Sanznesia like the rest of us and wiped him from their collective memories. But in fact, Lorne Michaels and Horatio’s former castmates Jimmy Fallon and Tracy Morgan care very much about what Horatio is up to these days because they have all just been named as defendants in an amended complaint filed by a “Jane Doe.” Jane Doe claims that Lorne, Jimmy, and Tracy all enabled Horatio’s misconduct. I guess that’s one way to get the guys to pick up your calls. It’s a sick, twisted, and extremely convoluted way, but hey I guess it worked. I heard Horatio and the boys were gonna try to get together with their lawyers soon for some beers and mutually assured destruction.
Chevy Chase Says He “Just Doesn’t Care” That People Think He’s Awful To Work With
Chevy Chase doesn’t seem to be very well-liked. The 78-year-old comedian has gotten a reputation for being a general asshole and lost his job on the series, Community, in 2012 after he let an N-word fly in a tirade. And as former co-star, Donald Glover, remembers it, Chevy was an antagonistic jerk. And back in 2018, Pete Davidson talked about Chevy Chase on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show and said: “Fuck Chevy Chase… He’s just a genuinely bad, racist person and I don’t like him.” Well, Chevy knows that people think this way about him, and as he told CBS Sunday Morning: “I just don’t care.”
A Thing That Happened: Kim Kardashian Hosted “Saturday Night Live”
Lorne Michaels is definitely breathing out a million sighs of relief today because his reign as the overlord of Saturday Night Live will continue for another 1,000 years now that he’s given Satan the gift of giving Hell’s most terrifying kreations, the Kardashians, a big platform. As expected, Kim Kardashian followed in the footsteps of her fellow comedic icons (like Paris Hilton, Trump, Nancy Kerrigan, Rudy Ghouliani, Elon Musk, and Lance Armstrong) and hosted SNL last night. We did learn last night that Kim Kardashian can actually read words! But then again, her cue cards were probably written with emojis.
Lorne Michaels Wants “Saturday Night Live’s” Current Cast To Stick Around For A Bit
It has been said many times that to know Lorne Michaels is to study Austin Powers’ Dr. Evil character. And I know Lorne Michaels isn’t saying goodbye to Saturday Night Live cast members by unceremoniously firing them into space or dropping them into a tank filled with laser-equipped sharks. The reality is probably more of an emotionless handshake and asking if you need instructions on where to return your NBC security pass. But Lorne doesn’t want to do any of that this year. According to Variety, Lorne is desperate to keep several veteran cast members on for the 47th season, and beyond.
For Some Reason, Elon Musk Will Host “Saturday Night Live,” And Some Of The Cast Might Not Be Too Excited About It
Over the weekend, it was revealed that billionaire car salesman Elon Musk would be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, which makes almost zero sense to anyone familiar with the concept of the show. Because SNL is a live sketch comedy show, and one could argue that Elon is only funny in an accidental way. But still, we don’t know what was running through Lorne Michaels’ head when he decided that Elon Musk was qualified to host on May 8. Among those seriously questioning Lorne’s judgment might be a few people who could possibly have to act opposite Elon in sketches.
Pete Davidson May Leave “Saturday Night Live” Because They Make Fun Of Him
Pete Davidson made headlines yesterday for saying he wants to have a kid with his mom during his interview with Charlamagne tha God. But let’s immediately move on from that Chinatown shit, and focus on other, less Oedipal parts of the almost-one hour interview. Pete says that after more than five seasons, it’s probably time for him to leave Saturday Night Live, because he’s not sure if he’s the joke or not and they all think he’s fucking dumb. “NO COMMENT” said everybody who works on SNL.
