Bill Hader SNL Promo


Bill Hader and Kenan Thompson joke about the “Saturday Night Live” diversity issue in a new promo for this weekend’s show.

As Gossip Cop has reported, the NBC sketch comedy show has come under fire for not featuring enough minorities, particularly black women.

In the new clip, Hader, who departed his role as a regular cast member last year, asks Thompson what’s new since he left.

“They renovated the bathroom. There’s spaghetti and meatballs in the cafeteria, and we got a ton of black people now,” replies Thompson, slapping hands with Hader in delight.

Interestingly, it’s been speculated that Thompson himself will be leaving “SNL” at the end of the current season, though a rep for the show has downplayed the reports.
