  1. She only perpetuated negative black stereotypes and worst part is she was only capable of playing that caricature. Literally the worst cast member in the entire history of SNL

  2. seems kinda odd that they're dropping this NOW?? i mean don't the "graduating" alumni usually announce they're leaving at the END of their final season? makes me wonder if there was some behind-the-scenes drama to prompt her departure only weeks before the new season?

  3. 🍇🍷🍺 Check Out My You-Tube Beer  Review of Crooked Hammock Brewing Co's  WAI-OLA  California Common Coconut Ale..  🍻  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdtJVRqeQ80&t=12s  .🍻.    Have A Great Week 🍹 Brewed In The Delaware Beaches… 🍇🍷Cheers Guys 🍻🍷🍷

  4. The Token is bolt’n? Looooong overdue. She was there simply because she checked a lot of boxes for HR. She wasn’t funny. Neither is Pete Davidson while we’re at it.

  5. Yes. She has never been funny. Can't deliver lines. Can't do impressions. As if SNL just wanted a black female and didn't dig very deep to find one with any depth.

    Loud is not funny. Loud is not talent.
