Jay Pharoah, comedian and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, has opened up about being let go from the sketch comedy show. 

On Friday morning, Pharoah appeared on Hot 97’s “Erbo in the Morning,” and held nothing back when talking about “SNL.” If you recall, he was let go last summer, along with Taran Killam. 

“You go where you’re appreciated,” Pharoah told hosts Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez. “If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like, ‘You’re so talented and you’re able and they don’t use you and it’s unfair. And it’s making us feel bad, because they don’t use you and you’re a talent.’”

He continued, “They put people into boxes and whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do.”
