So first off, who is Shane Gills?
I had no idea either, but apparently he was on Saturday Night Live (SNL) for about a hot minute before getting kicked off when it was discovered he used “racial slurs” against Asians in the past.
So after being branded a racist by many people, Gills apparently wanted to double down and he went on stage in a comedy club to say he thought President Trump would “definitely be the funniest [president] to see get shot.”
Cause what’s not funny about that, right Gills?
Let’s see, Asian slurs are funny, and shooting presidents is funny, right Gills?
Wow, I can’t imagine why SNL didn’t want this guy.
Here is more, from Fox News:
In addition to the jokes about President Trump, the 31-year-old comic addressed the backlash he's received since his joke came to light.
"It's been weird," Gillis said during his 10-minute set at The Stand NYC comedy club in New York City on Wednesday night (via USA Today). "Twitter, obviously, has been nuts. You try to stay off it when the whole country hates you. That's not a fun feeling."
He continued: "Everybody's like, 'You can't say (expletive) and not expect consequences.' I'm fine with the consequences – that's it, I'm not arguing. But I do want everyone to know that I have been reading every one of my death threats in an Asian accent."
Gillis then said that once he was labeled "a bad guy" people assumed he is "alt-right or something."
"For real, though, I did not vote for Donald Trump," he said, while winking at the audience, reported USA Today. "Look at me: I didn't, but that was tough. His whole campaign was at me. 'Are you a fat idiot? Yeah, dude, what're we doing?'"
Gillis then said "Trump is funny" and admitted if the president were to come out on stage and roast him after his set "he'd bury me. He'd come out and be like, 'Fat. Loser. Fired.'"
That's when Gillis pivoted to his joke about Trump being shot in an attempt to prove to his audience he's not "too pro-Trump."
"I don't want you to think I'm too pro-Trump," Gillis shared. "I will say this: Of all the presidents I've been alive for, Trump would definitely be the funniest one to see get shot. Like, without a doubt, that'd be funny. I'm not asking for that; I don't want that to happen, but it would be funny to see. He'd be on stage talking (expletive), the shooter would be coming at him, and he'd be like, 'Sit down.' He'd definitely make a funny noise when he got hit. … It would be funny."
The White House did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.
On Tuesday, NBC announced Gillis would not be on the new season of "SNL." "We were not aware of his prior remarks that have surfaced over the past few days. The language he used is offensive, hurtful and unacceptable. We are sorry that we did not see these clips earlier, and that our vetting process was not up to our standard.”
Here's more on his original firing a few days ago:
