New ‘SNL’ Cast Member Shane Gillis Catches Heat For Racial Slurs Against Asians
Mike and Shane's Secret Podcast
Shane Gillis, one of 3 newly added "Saturday Night Live" cast members, is catching tons of flak online over a resurfaced podcast that shows him hurling racial slurs toward Asians.
In the September 2018 clip, Shane and his podcast partner are yukking it up over Chinatown … ripping the architecture, residents, culture and food.
Shane refers to noodles as "nooders" and uses a derogatory term for Asians in the expletive-laden discussion … with both hosts bashing all things China.
People are pissed off with the new 'SNL' hire … and critics say the optics look even worse considering NBC also hired it's first Asian-American for 'SNL' along with Shane.
BTW … Shane is the guy on the right.
