Leslie Knope has spoken!
The other day, The Hollywood Reporter released an interview they did with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey in preparation of their hosting gig at the Golden Globes!
Unfortunately for The Parks and Recreation star, when reading the transcript, it seems as if Amy had a bad attitude about the recent hiring of Sasheer Zamata at Saturday Night Live!
The comedienne cleared up that whole fiasco at the 2014 TCA Winter Press Tour on Thursday night after a reporter asked her about Shasheer.
She said about the interview:
"I'm so glad you asked that. I recently did an interview where they misquoted me out of context, as if I passed to respond on Sasheer's hiring. But I had done that interview many weeks ago and I had not got a chance to say congratulations officially to her.
We all know Sasheer and her work, and UCB is really proud to be associated with her. She was part of our diversity program many years ago and she's an awesome performer. So congratulations to her, I think we'd all like to say. … And congratulations to LaKendra [Tookes] and Leslie [Jones] for being hired [as writers] as well. It's awesome to see all those new faces at 'SNL.'"
Well, there's no bad blood there!
Did you really think Amy would throw away the opportunity to speak upon the greatness that has happened over at SNL?!
