Fired “Saturday Night Live” star Shane Gillis practically predicted that his past comments would lead to him being fired in an old comedy sketch.
In the clip shared on Twitter Tuesday, the bit on a comedy series called DWECK show dated Aug. 29, 2018, opens with a fake reporter standing on the street in front of a burned out building that left “one firefighter” Gillis, a hero because he saved a family of four from the blaze.

As the “reporter” turns his mic toward Gillis and appears to be asking him about the fire, the reporter pulls out a phone and wants to know if a photoshopped picture of Gillis’ character wearing a MAGA hat is indeed him and then said that “we have an unnamed source claiming you may, in fact, be a white supremacist.” (RELATED: SNL Creator Lorne Michaels Sends Pete Davidson Away To Get Help Following Suicide Scare)
As the “firefighter” appears to be completely blindsided by the question, he continues to try talking about the fire and what he did to help the family when he is corrected by the reporter and must deal with more questions of being a racist.
“I just saved an entire family up there,” Gillis replied. “And not that it matters at all, but those were Mexicans.”
