Jay Pharoah reveals why he was fired from SNL, he was on the the show for four full seasons and in an interview with Hot 97 he is finally discussing why he left.
“You go where you’re appreciated,” Pharoah began. “And if you have multiple people on the cast saying things like you’re so talented and you’re so able and they don’t use you and it’s unfair and it’s making us feel bad because they don’t use you and you’re a talent…”
“Whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do,” Pharoah said, before adding, “And I’m not a ‘yes !!!!!.’” Like his former cast member Kenan Thompson did during the uproar over the lack of black women on the show, he said he refused to put on a dress. It got so bad that people would show up at his stand-up shows and yell, “Fuck SNL!”
