Bill Burr and Jim Jefferies on SNL firing Shane Gillis

From Lights Out With David Spade

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.
