Bill Burr and Jim Jefferies have slated Saturday Night Live's decision to fire Shane Gillis over his use of a racist slur.

In this clip from Lights Out With David Spade, Jefferies said: 'This is just cancel culture, the guy shouldn’t have been fired. It's just a couple of thins back in his history. We gonna go through everyone’s history?'

While Burr lamented: 'We’re not running for office when is this fucking going to end' and blamed the culture millennials – 'a bunch of rats, all of you'.

The comedians all suggest that the comments that cost Gillis his job were in the distant past, although they actually came in a podcast he recorded last year.
