A THIRD Saturday Night Live Cast Member Just Got Cut — PLUS 20 Other SNL Stars Who Were Fired!

no title

We guess bad things really do come in threes…

Saturday Night Live viewers were shocked on Tuesday when it was reported that fan-favorites Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had both been let go from the late night show after six years on the air.

However, it seems as though Lorne Michaels wasn't content with cutting just two of his line-up, because featured player Jon Rudnitsky followed them right out the door later the same day!

But if Jay, Jon, or Taran happen to be your favorite, don't fret — plenty of today's hottest stars were one once fired from the NBC series, too!

Just look at Robert Downey, Jr., Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Sarah Silverman! All three of them had less-than-stellar stints on the show, and they turned out fine.

So who else has been fired from SNL in its 41-season span??

As you surely know, both Jay and Taran have been with SNL for six seasons and have created countless memorable characters. Mr. Pharoah alone has famously impersonated Barack Obama, Jay Z, Dr. Ben Carson, Will Smith, etc. Not to mention, Killam is best known for his impersonations of Matthew McConaughey, Marco Rubio, and more.

If you're baffled as to why Lorne Michaels would dump two of the show's seasoned vets, you're totally not alone! In fact, not long after the departure news hit the media, Taran opened up to Uproxx about his shocking exit. He dished:

'Donald Maroney' Meme Brilliantly Combines Donald Trump With Sociopathic Quotes From 30 Rock's Jenna Maroney!

no title

Donald Trump has spewed out a lot of ridiculous quotes during his presidential campaign so far — most of which are dripping with narcissism, cattiness, and just straight up nonsense.

After listening to the candidate at the fear-injecting hate riot that was last week's Republican National Convention, the Internet realized Trump reminded them of another self-indulgent sociopath — 30 Rock's Jenna Maroney!

Jane Krakowski played the hilarious desperate actress for 7 Seasons in Tina Fey's Emmy-winning sitcom, and arguably had some of the best lines in the series.

Since Trump is a walking Saturday Night Live sketch in himself, Tumblr users brilliantly combined Jenna's words and the candidate's face, and just like Jenna singing The Rural Juror, it comes together all too beautifully!

Ch-ch-check out some of the most hilarious Donald Maroney memes (below)!
