Seth Meyers Calls Out Kenan Thompson for Disrespecting His Late Night Desk

Longtime Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson is, by all accounts, a completely kind and, more importantly, completely professional performer. Well, he’s completely professional by most accounts, now that we’ve gotten an exclusive look into the way he treats the desk in Seth Meyers’s Late Night studio when the NBC host isn’t around to protect it, despite Meyers generously sharing his studio with the SNL crew when they need extra space. After chatting about his storied career on Nickelodeon’s All That and SNL, Thompson was forced to face some recent behavior that Meyers considers unacceptable: A photo was shared of Thompson taking an imaginary dump on Meyers’s desk while filming the “Royal Romance” sketch for Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s SNL episode last week. “The only thing I ask is respect the desk! This is my home! Without the desk, I’m nothing,” Meyers pleads. “You tell me if you think this is professional.” Thompson’s only defense? “I just wanted to leave you a little gift!”
