Jenny Slate, one of the newest cast members of "Saturday Night Live," dropped an f-bomb during last night’s season premiere.
Watkins was shocked by her firing.
Slate looked shocked by slip.
UPDATE: Lorne Michaels‘ reaction, via Tom Shales: "It was literally her first time on the show. There was nothing dirty, just a slip of the tongue. It was ‘frickin’, frickin’, frickin” and then boom! The pain that Jenny is going through is, I’m sure, considerably worse than that experienced by anybody who saw it."
"It has to be an actor’s worst nightmare," Michaels continued. "Your first time on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and this happens. You could sense the mortification in the studio."
"I don’t want that show to be remembered for one word … I feel awful."
