Shane Gillis will never get to take the stage at "SNL," because he's already been cut from the new cast before even taping an episode.
The famed sketch show announced Gillis' departure Monday afternoon in a statement:
"After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL," a rep for the show told The Hollywood Reporter.
The statement, made on behalf of Lorne Michaels, continued:
"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."
