Not all Saturday Night Live fans embraced the return of Bill Brasky. But while most probably changed the channel after a few seconds or so of the final sketch (see below) from the Paul Rudd-helmed episode, Tim Meadows decided to post his feelings on the Internet.
The former SNL cast member took to his Facebook page to air his grievances, writing, “They did Brasky with out me” — the first in a string of posts about his disappointment at not being invited to the show.
Meadows’ followers responded immediately, sending their condolences and asking what happened. The actor and comedian answered in a series of comments, explaining his displeasure at not being asked to come back for the skit, which he usually took part in (the Brasky sketch used Kenan Thompson in his place as the last Brasky Buddy to join the others), and for missing the chance to take his kids to see musical guest One Direction — er, “5 directions,” according to Meadows.
“Not even a ‘hey would you want to come to do one line and bring your kids to see the 5 directions…?’ Nothing… Wow,” Meadows wrote. “I guess it just dawned on me that I mean NOTHING to them… It doesn’t matter in the long run. I’m grateful for what they did for me. But everyone in a while as a fan and a alumni, it stings a little to not even be considered as someone they would like to come back around… I’m not Anchor Man and I’m not promoting a show so who would want to pay for me to fly to NYC. I’m nobody… NOBODY!!”
