In an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience last week, Joe Rogan accused Saturday Night Live of being a “den of thieves” that stole ideas and material from not only writers but also performers.

Speaking to Shane Gillis during his podcast — who himself was fired from SNL after past racist remarks he had made surfaced — Rogan claimed that “By all accounts, that place is a den of thieves,” reflecting on his earlier conversation with Jim Breuer, who was a cast member on the show from 1995 to 1998. “You hear Jim Breuer’s account of the climate in that place and it’s horrific,” he continued. “They’re all stealing from writers, they’re stealing from performers. If you’re a writer and you submit your packages, the higher-up writers will steal your shit, according to Breuer.”

“If you submit a package, they own that package, even if they don’t hire you,” the podcaster added. “So if you have some great premises, they decide they’re just going to take your premises and not hire you, they own all those bits.” Breuer told Rogan at the time that “Everyone’s at each other’s throats. It’s like politics.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, Eric Bana says he’s happy he didn’t do more Hulk films.
