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?!

    It's not greatness if it sucks. It's not greatness if it ends up being dumb, low brow humor.

    This is such BS. Greatness? And I dunno if that is how she really feels. She worked out and was funny and talented, SHE didn't get hired because she is white.
    You wanna call greatness to a few woman that got hired specially because they are BLACK? That is called affirmative action? Yea, every hear of it? That BS program, they gives freebes to different races excludes those are are qualified if there is alreadyh too many "whites".
    HEY, aren't there funny asians, chinese, etc etc woman out there? Why doesn't one of them get a free ride to SNl, for diversity? Such BS and I read many articles about this, and NO media has the balls to say anything. Such fucking chickens.
    I have no doubt these woman will fail and not have their contracts renewed. If there were SO funny, such great minds and writers, such great comedic minds, I assure you to hell, that they would of already been HIRED. I can't belive NBS and LM caved in like this. I love SNL, sadly I home often on Saturdays nights ( Hey im good looking I assure you), and SNL is one of my fav shows. I just assure you , she will not be a star. Just like EG dropped off the face of the earth, middle american, and most american just ain't looking to a black woman for their comedy. Wanda sykes is the funniest black woman I know, and shit I can only stand her for 10 mins at the max.
