Jenny Slate Not Fired From SNL


NBC says it will not fire new Saturday Night Live cast member Jenny Slate for dropping the F-word during the show’s season premiere on Saturday night.

While SNL aired live on the East Coast, producers bleeped Slate’s mistake with “freakin'” for West Coast airings.

“No truth to firing conjecture,” NBC spokeswoman Sharon Pannozzo said. “She will not be fired.” Still, show executives were less than thrilled about Slate’s slip and had a big meeting after the show, a source told the New York Daily News.

“It was a very big deal that the F-word hit the air,” the source said. Because the slip up occurred about 12:40 a.m., well after prime time, “SNL” is not expected to face fines from the Federal Communications Commission.

Slate did not attend SNL’s swanky after-party at Pranna on Madison Ave.
