Kenan Thompson Says Samuel L. Jackson Is No Longer Banned From ‘SNL’

After Samuel L. Jackson claimed that he was banned from Saturday Night Live for dropping the f-bomb during in his last appearance, Kenan Thompson says Jackson can return to the show.

“Kenan got me banned from Saturday Night Live. … He didn’t cut me off soon enough and I said the forbidden word on television,” Jackson said on the Ellen Degeneres Show. “He was supposed to cut me off!”

Thompson denied having the power to ban him but said it’s okay for him to return.

“Hey, Sam. It’s all good, bro,” Thompson said. “You’re welcome any time, from what I’ve been hearing. Anyway, he dropped the f-bomb on the show but he says I was supposed to cut him off before that. But the cue card, it was just an ‘F’ on the cue card, it wasn’t like the whole word. I was thinking he was just gonna go, like, a fake move. … But he went full train at it because I guess he’s a method kind of guy.”
