Though her Twitter account has been suspended for still unknown reasons, Cecily Strong — replaced a couple of days ago on SNL’ “Weekend Update” by SNL writer and Daily Show correspondent, Michael Che — found a way to get her message out via social media. Specifically Instagram.
Does she look bummed? No. Because she’s not, as she writes:
I don’t see this as me leaving update, just as me being on update in a looser, goofier way that is a lot more fun for me and in a way I think I’m better at. And now I get to do features with the very funny and wonderful Michael Che! No point in being angry or sad for me for something I’m genuinely happy about! Unless you are just a person who enjoys being angry or sad. Then I guess play on, playa. Also, I danced too hard last night so now I am wearing a hot pad on my neck. Be angry and sad for me about my dumbass neck.
I’m not gonna lie. When Cecily says, “play on playa,” I get a little lightheaded. She gives me the vapors.
