Damon Wayans
While his time on SNL was short, Damon Wayans remains one of the most controversial cast members in the show's history. According to the book Live from New York, he was reportedly fired for changing his character from a police officer to a flamboyantly gay man in the middle of the sketch—on live television. Damon went on to star in the sketch show In Living Color and a string of Hollywood movies, and appeared on The Oprah Show in 2004 along with other members of his famously funny family.
