Jenny Slate Reveals The Real Reason Why She Got Fired From 'Saturday Night Live'

By

We know her as Mona-Lisa Saperstein from Parks and Recreation and Jess from Married, but way before she landed these roles, Jenny Slate briefly appeared on Saturday Night Live. After working on 22 episodes, the actress suddenly got the boot. And most fans believed that it was because SNL's creator, Lorne Michaels, was upset about her using the F-word on live television. However, according to Jenny, the fans couldn't be more wrong.

What happened when Jenny appeared on SNL?

When the actress and comedian was filming her very first episode, she did a skit alongside Kristen Wiig, where she played a biker. During their dialogue, she said: "You stood up for yourself, and do you know what? I f---ing love you for that.”
