Leslie Jones just sent out a bunch of tweets confirming the rumor that she is leaving Saturday Night Live.

“Yes it’s true I am leaving Saturday Night Live. I cannot thank NBC, the producers, writers, and amazing crew enough for making SNL my second home these last five years. Lorne Michaels, you’ve changed my life in so many ways! Thank you for being my mentor and confidant and for always having my back.”

“To the incredible cast members: I will miss working, creating and laughing with you. I will miss holding it down with Kenan everyday, I will miss Cecily’s impression of me making me laugh at myself often, I will miss Kate’s loving hugs and talk when I needed. And of course Colin, you porcelain-skinned Ken doll.”

“I know you will be as excited as I am when you see some of the amazing projects and adventures that I have coming up very soon.”

She ends the post with the hashtag #iamnotdeadjustgraduating.
