Jenny Slate Fired

Jenny Slate Fired
The new 'Saturday Night Live' cast member that dropped the F-Bomb this weekend will NOT have to worry about a different F-word: "Fired". Jenny Slate was performing in her first show as a cast member of 'SNL', when she got a little too into character in a sketch called "Biker Chick Chat" and said the word some call "the mother of all swear words".

That caused some speculation that Slate's first show would be her last, but an NBC spokeswoman says she will NOT be fired. The slip was not seen here, they dubbed in a different word for the west coast broadcast. It's not the first time the word has slipped on the show. Comic Charles Rocket did the same thing in 1981, when he was a new cast member. But he was fired the next week, had a rough time in show business after that, and killed himself in 2005.
The Brooklyn funny lady, Tehran-born, raised in California comedian, and SNL newbie has attracted a lot of attention when she dropped an f-bomb, apparently by accident. She was in the middle of a SNL skit when she let go of a sentence; “You stood up for yourself, and I f—ing love you for that.” Over the years, people have been fired for saying these things on live TV, including Charles Rocket in 1981 and Norm MacDonald in 1997. No news yet on if Jenny Slate is being fired for her slip of the tongue.
