Jay Pharoah Finally Explains Why He Got Fired From SNL!

no title

Jay Pharoah getting fired from Saturday Night Live has been a major head scratcher for us for months now.

We mean, he seemed like he hardly ever got on the show, but every time he did it was a massive hit. So what was the issue?? More like issues. Plural.

But after an interview with Ebro In The Morning on Thursday, we have a much better idea what went down.

Basically, the comic says there were a lot of sources of friction, including that he was pigeonholed as just an impressionist, that the higher ups wouldn't green light Barack Obama sketches, and that he ruffled feathers by speaking up about the show's infamous lack of black women.

Pharoah also refused to cooperate in one very specific way — wearing a dress. He says he was always being asked to wear drag by other writers and cast members; he broke it down:

Jay Pharoah & Gigi Hadid Take A TON Of Shots At Donald & Melania Trump In Their 2016 AMAs Opener!


2016 AMAs — Opening by videosuploaded_

We knew Jay Pharoah and Gigi Hadid would make a good pair.

On Sunday night, the 2016 American Music Awards cohosts opened the show with MANY jokes directed at Donald Trump and Melania Trump. Let's just say we're setting our alarms for 3 a.m. — we just know Mr. Trump will be tweeting up a storm about these digs!

While there were A LOT of bits to cover, the top moments included Pharoah's Donald impression and the shots Gigi took at Melania! Not to mention the model called out our pesky electoral college specifically, so we think it's safe to say the beauty is #StillWithHer!

As for Jay's Drumpf impression, he KILLED the president-elect's ridiculous posturing and ideas on immigration. The comedian joked "Trump" wouldn't deport Bruno Mars - ha!

Not to be outdone, Hadid's pointed homage took aim at Mrs. Trump's plagiarism scandal and her very unique facial expressions. We can tell Gigi spent a lot of time practicing in front of the mirror for that bit!

So, what did you think of the jokes?

The sketch show took to Twitter to make the exciting announcement, posting:

We don't really blame NBC for going after some huge names to kick off season 42, since the absence of Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah, and Jon Rudnitsky is sure to leave a pretty big void.

However, it will be interesting to see newbies Melissa Villaseñor, Mikey Day, and Alex Moffat in action!

The premiere of SNL's 42nd season will air on Saturday, October 1. Will U be watching?!

Time to pump in some fresh blood!

Last month, Lorne Michaels made the surprising decision to not renew the contracts of two of Saturday Night Live's veteran cast members — Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah.

Taran Killam Officially Says Goodbye To SNL With An HBO Spoof!

no title

Taran Killam is saying goodbye to Saturday Night Live the only way he knows how — through the art of parody.

Last month, NBC confirmed that the veteran cast member wouldn't be returning to the series, along with fellow fan-favorite Jay Pharoah.

Though he admitted he was "never given a reason why" his contract wasn't renewed, Killam did make sure to say he had "no gripes" about being let go.

So how did the actor decide to officially say goodbye to the late night sketch series?? Why, with a spoof of the HBO docu-series Hard Knocks, of course!

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Taran shared a quick sketch titled Live Knocks: Saying Goodbye to SNL — which showed the vet packing up his dressing room, and included a shameless plug for his new film Brother Nature.

Liev Schreiber, who narrates Hard Knocks, commentates Killam's exit as the funny man pulls down photos of costars Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. So sad!

Ch-ch-check out Taran's poignant farewell clip (below)!!!
