New ‘SNL’ Cast Member Shane Gillis Puts anti-Asian Racism on Display in Resurfaced Video



Take him down with the quickness; Not only has SNL hired their first cast memeber of East Asian descent with Bowen Yang, they also hired Shane Gillis...who, not even a year ago, was being racist against East Asian people on a podcast, complete with slurs.




"An Asian trying to learn english bothers me more than someone playing Lil Uzi Vert loud on their phone," He says, there's another video in the Twitter thread.

Video episodes of the podcast have been scrubbed, but the audio remains.



the racism was brought to Variety's attention by freelancer Seth Simons. SNL / Gillis has not commented.
