Shane Gillis is an American comedian who joined Saturday Night Live for its 45th season.


After his hiring, Gillis came under fire for using racial slurs against Asian people in 2018 (a year before he was hired), just as the show brought on it's first East Asian-American cast member, Bowen Yang. His comments also included homophobic slurs. In a tweet, he defended his comments, saying they were a part of his comedy.[1]
