Kenan Thompson Responds After Fans Keep Cutting Him Out of 'SNL' Photo with Fellow Legends

Kenan Thompson has seemingly responded to some of the love he got after being cut out of an iconic Saturday Night Live photo.

If you missed it, it all started when Eddie Murphy hosted the show after a decades-long hiatus. During his monologue, he brought Dave Chappelle, Tracy Morgan and Chris Rock on stage, and they were soon joined by Kenan.

Well, photos of the iconic moment began circulating on social media, except many began cutting Kenan out of the photo. Later, people began calling out the faux pas and including the full photo with kind words about Kenan‘s impact.

“Before you disrespect Kenan Thompson and crop him out of this photo, remember that this man has a 26-year long career — the bulk of it on SNL,” one fan defended, while another wrote, “I grew up watching Good Burger, Kenan & Kel, All That, then as an adult watching him on SNL. He is a legend & deserves more respect than he gets. It’s disrespectful to crop him out & says a lot about you.”

Kenan saw the love and posted a tweet, embedded in this post.
