SNL’s Colin Jost Used To Have A Beard—And We’re Not OK

Not since the 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has there been this much debate. In a recent Twitter post, some shocking photographs have come out proving without a doubt that Saturday Night Live writer and Weekend Update anchor Colin Jost used to have a beard.

You may want to sit down for the rest of this. 

It all started with what appeared to be a harmless tweet sent out by writer/comedian John Mulaney reminiscing about the time in 2008 with John Hamm appeared on SNL. The cast and crew dressed up like Mad Men characters and were doing some day drinking. 

Harmless enough, right? Wrong!

Twitter, always on the lookout, noticed something odd about the photo. In the right hand corner, there stands Colin Jost with—gasp!— a beard. 

Let the great beard debate of 2018 commence.

Some weren’t sure how to feel.

Others were firmly in the YAY category. 

More were definitely in the NAY category. 

There you have it. The Nay’s win.
