(CNN) — This may be the shortest Saturday Night Live tenure in the show’s history.
Monday, SNL announced that Shane Gillis is no longer a part of the program.
The NBC sketch show hired Gillis last week.
Following that announcement, news broke that the comedian had a history of making defamatory remarks about Chinese Americans and his use of homophobic slur.
Gillis took to Twitter to react to his firing.
In it, he said he “respected the decision they made” and “was grateful for the opportunity.”
He ended his statement with a jab at SNL though, tweeting he was “always a mad tv guy anyway.”
