• By Emily Crane and Chris Spargo

Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels has seemingly admitted the show chose not to roast Harvey Weinstein because the embattled film heavyweight is from New York.

When Michaels was asked as he was leaving SNL's after-party at 4am why the show avoided the Weinstein controversy, the producer smiled and responded: 'It's a New York thing.'

The show had earlier been criticized for not mentioning the sexual harassment allegations leveled against Weinstein this week.

But has since learned that the cast did try out a Weinstein joke during dress rehearsal - it just never made it to air.
