‘Saturday Night Live’ Introduces First ‘Nonbinary’ Cast Member

‘Saturday Night Live’ has hired its first ‘nonbinary’ cast member when the show returns for its 48th season this fall.

QUICK FACTS:
  • NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ has announced its hiring of the show’s first ‘nonbinary’ cast member as it returns for a new season.
  • Comedian Molly Kearney will star as the show’s debut ‘nonbinary’ acting member and prefers to use the gender pronouns “they/them”, according to NBC.
  • The move comes after SNL has continued to deal with a decline in ratings over the past few years, with last year’s premiere bringing in just 3.5 million viewers.
AUTHOR FRANK J. FLEMING ON THE ‘NONBINARY’ TREND:

“I mean, people are free to use whatever crazy pronouns they want for themselves, but the idea that everyone else is supposed to keep a pronouns spreadsheet based on the whims of every narcissistic weirdo seems unsustainable,” Fleming recently tweeted.

BACKGROUND:
  • The new “woke” entertainment phenomenon has negatively impacted viewership in almost all facets of Hollywood as earlier this month, the Emmy Awards, for example, took a 25 percent dive in viewers, declining steadily for the third year in a row.
  • Liberal celebrities have revealed their hypocrisy over the past two years, revealing how they don’t live by the same rules as the general public.
  • At the 2021 Met Gala, for example, while the staff could be seen wearing masks per the museum’s COVID rules, elite celebrities, athletes, and politicians seemed to be exempt from the requirement.
