In perhaps the most meta sketch ever, controversial comedian Shane Gillis seemed to predict his own fate in a bit he filmed a year before being fired from “Saturday Night Live.”
The sketch was posted on YouTube in August of 2018, where Gillis plays a firefighter who is being interviewed by a reporter who accuses him of being a racist.
The video opens up with the reporter announcing that firefighter Shane saved a family from a fire but then starts his interview with Gillis by asking him to confirm that he is actually wearing a Make America Great Again hat.
The interview spirals out of control and ends with firefighter Shane getting canned due to the Fire Department’s “zero tolerance policy on intolerance.”
Who could have predicted that just over a year after the sketch was published he would be fired due to his alleged racist and intolerant comments?
