Schneider recently denied reports that he was cut off during a performance at a holiday gala full of high-profile Republican politicians late last year, during which he allegedly made off-color jokes about Asian people and “Korean w—-houses.”

Politico had reported that the former Saturday Night Live cast member was stopped after 10 minutes during what was supposed to be a 30-minute set at the Waldorf Astoria and that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi chose to leave because she found Schneider’s routine “gross and vulgar.”

“Nobody removed me from stage, somebody waved to me at the 50 minute mark,” Schneider told TMZ. “I’m not changing my material or apologizing for my jokes to anybody. Enough with this woke bulls—, America’s sick of it. I did 50 minutes because that’s what I was paid to do.”

All 150 attendees, including more than 40 Senate chiefs of staff and other former and current GOP members, reportedly received an apology email the next day, reading: “While we do our best to ensure every aspect of our program is professional, courteous, and appropriate, we sincerely regret that the entertainment at last night’s program fell short of that goal.”
