"Saturday Night Live" actor Brooks Wheelan has been apparently canned, according to a not-too-subtle tweet he sent late Monday.
Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke... FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!

The 27-year-old actor frequently seen on the show's "Weekend Update" skit joins a growing list of celebrities who have been given the boot by their employers.

P.S. Wheelan hasn't lost his sense of humor. When Hollywood comedy writer Judd Apatow tweeted him best wishes, likening his career trajectory to that of Robert Downey Jr., Wheelen tweeted back: "@JuddApatow thanks man! I'm gonna take this time to formally submit myself for the Ironman reboot in 2021 and the Chaplin reboot in 2032."
