So bummed! Word broke last week that Leslie Jones was not returning to Saturday Night Live this season. Part of me hoped that it was just a rumor. Well, the horse's mouth has opened. Leslie Jones confirmed her exit on her Instagram page this week. She's thankful to the cast and SNL creator Lorne Michaels. She ended her post with #Imnotdeadivegraduated She says she's excited about all the upcoming projects coming up.
