Well, that was quick.

In case you missed it, Shane Gillis was recently announced as one of the newest faces of “Saturday Night Live.”

It didn’t take long for some old remarks of his to be brought to light:

Footage of Gillis’s podcast, “Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast,” was posted to social media by entertainment journalist Seth Simons on Thursday. In it, Gillis, when discussing New York City’s Chinatown, is heard saying, “Let the f-cking ch-nks live there,” and mocks immigrants’ language skills.

In other episodes, Gillis makes derogatory remarks about women, Muslims and the LBTQ community.

The controversy comes on the heels of news that staff writer Bowen Yang, who is gay and Chinese American, would be added to the show’s 45th season roster, only the third cast member of Asian descent to join; previous cast members Fred Armisen and Rob Schneider are of part Asian descent.

“As a comedian, I usually side with the comedians on sensitive subjects. But this is just plain racist. [It’s] truly disgusting,” wrote “Silicon Valley” star Jimmy O. Yang on Twitter. “This man has to go @nbcsnl.”

Well, apparently SNL was listening:

It’s gone, all right:


Hey, they’ve gotta draw the line of taste somewhere.

Oh well. Like we said, they’ve gotta draw the line somewhere.

Hey, you never know.
