“Tonight Show” head writer REBECCA DRYSDALE is on her way out. She says the parting is mutual, but “Variety” claims she had a very specific reason for leaving.
They quoted her as saying, “The project of making fun of [DONALD TRUMP], or doing material about Trump, has led to divided creative teams, anxiety, tears and pain. I can’t decide the outcome of this election, but I can make the choice for myself, to vote him out of my creative life.”
But Rebecca asked Variety to take their story down, claiming it was based on, quote, “private Facebook comments that were taken out of context.”
