Before I get into why Tim Meadows is mad at SNL, I remember standing behind him side stage at Lollapalooza this year, we were watching Tegan & Sara…well he was with his kids…I was trying to figure out how to take a picture without looking like a creep.
Anyway, Tim was mad over not being asked to perform a skit he was in “Bill Brasky” one of my fav SNL skits and he tweets below why he was pissed! from tmz.com
Meadows tweeted: “They did Brasky without me” … adding, “Not even a ‘hey would you want to come to do one line and bring your kids to see the 5 directions…?’ Nothing… Wow…”
“I will never watch SNL again.”
Meadows also explained why he thinks he’s persona non grata — and it traces back to his movie, “The Ladies Man.”
“Sorry the ladies man bombed,” Meadows wrote … “If it would have done better they wouldn’t treat me like a red-headed step child.”
After the rant, Tim cooled down and seemed to back off his comments … saying, “I’m not mad at the show. I know what it takes to produce those sketches in a short amount of time. I talked to a friend on the show who said it WAS a last minute sketch.”
“I acted like a baby. I’m happy for all of my friends success and will always be grateful and proud to have been a part of SNL. That being said don’t forget to see ‘Anchorman 2’ coming soon to a theater near you.”
Fun Fact: “The Ladies Man” bombed so bad it took SNL 10 years to make another movie.
