This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Oooooh yeaaahhhh, Xtina Apple G. is bringing some '90s flavor back to the Satty Night Livive!
It's been 19 years since Christina Applegate hosted SNL, and girl has blossomed from America's sassiest teenage daughter into everyone's favorite fake co-news anchor!
The Up All Night star is hosting the iconic comedy sketch show with musical guest Passion Pit, and we hope hope HOPE her Anchorman 2 costar Will Ferrell AKA Ron Burgundy and his immaculate mustache will pop by for a cameo…
'Cause no one can deliver passive aggressive, 70s-style insults like Christina and Will!
