Bill Hader Jokes About 'Saturday Night Live' Diversity in New Promos with Kenan Thompson - Watch Now!

Check out the brand new Saturday Night Live promos featuring this weekend’s host Bill Hader!

The 36-year-old actor, who was a castmember on the show from 2005-2013, asked his former castmate Kenan Thompson what’s been new since he left.

Kenan responded, “We renovated the bathroom. There’s spaghetti and meatballs in the cafeteria. And we got a ton of black people now!”

This of course pokes fun at the controversy earlier this year that the cast wasn’t diverse enough, which prompted the hiring of Sasheer Zamata.

Kenan Thompson Leaving 'SNL' After This Season? (Report)

Kenan Thompson is reportedly set to leave Saturday Night Live after the upcoming 2014-15 season, according to TMZ.

The 36-year-old comedian had hoped to leave the long-running series after the previous season, but he signed on for one more after creator Lorne Michaels asked him to stay on in the midst of a big cast turnover.

Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers have all left the show in the last couple years, leaving Kenan as the longest-running cast member on the series.

UPDATE: A spokesperson for SNL told BuzzFeed: “This report is inaccurate as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”
