Hordes of Deadpool fans recently petitioned to have Ryan Reynolds host Saturday Night Live as our favorite Merc with a Mouth. I mean, how great would that be, right?! While the petition was never responded to by creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels at SNL, Ryan Reynolds responded to fans with a spoof of a recent rant by a "celebrity" backstage at SNL, and it is pretty hilarious.
Actually DEADPOOL was going to host back in the 90s, but then this happened. Thank god Tom Hanks was available.https://t.co/7pyPEMysdY

If you haven't heard the buzz, Reynolds as Deadpool in the above video is making fun of Kanye West. Apparently some changes were made to the disillusioned man-child's stage set-up on SNL briefly before he was scheduled to perform. And such as man-children do, he threw a tantrum babbling on about how influential he is. The only thing that Kanye influences me to do is take a dump. I'd post his original rant, but who cares.
