New ‘SNL’ Cast Members Receive Mixed Reactions.

NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ recently announced the addition of three new cast members to their popular late night show.

.

Comedians Chloe Fineman, Shane Gillis and Bowen Yang are slated to become feature players in the upcoming 45th season.

.

Yang, who has been a writer for the sketch show since September 2018, will be the show’s first Chinese-American regular.

His hiring has been praised as an important step forward, as there has only been a total of six Asian or Asian-American hosts in the history of the show.

On the other hand, Gillis has been at the center of controversy since the announcement of his hiring.

A 2018 clip currently circulating online features Gillis making racist comments against the Asian community as well as many other groups.

.

He has since issued an apology, saying he is a “comedian who pushes boundaries.” .

It is not yet known whether the unearthed comments will affect NBC’s hiring of Gillis.
