What a bummer!
Despite being one of our favorites for the gig, and being prophesied in the Hot Tub Time Machine sequel, popular Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams squashed rumors she would take over as host of the program in Jon Stewart's departure.
The 25-year-old comedian who became the show's youngest ever correspondent in 2012 took to Twitter to deliver the bad news.
Fact 1: I'm not hosting. Thank you but I am extremely under-qualified for the job!— Jessica R. Williams (@msjwilly) February 16, 2015
At this age (25) if something happens politically that I don't agree with, I need to go to my room & like not come out for, like, 7 days.— Jessica R. Williams (@msjwilly) February 16, 2015
That being said I am super not right for it, but there are quite a few people who are! Can't wait to stick around & see what happens.— Jessica R. Williams (@msjwilly) February 16, 2015
When a great deal of her fans were understandably disappointed with this development, Jessica tweeted again:
thanks to everyone tweetin at me like 😭. Haha but I'm not like, dead.This is the beginning of my career. I'm gonna troll that ass for yrs.— Jessica R. Williams (@msjwilly) February 16, 2015
Keep trollin' Jessica! We can't wait to see what your future has in store.
