Throughout its 41-year history on the air, Saturday Night Live has seen a gigantic number of celebrities cross its stages, from the casts to the guest hosts to the musicians, and everyone in between. A lot of those people are held in high esteem in Studio 8H, such as Phil Hartman and Tina Fey, but not everyone has been that lucky. In fact, there have been quite a few individuals over the years who went in the complete opposite direction in terms of good graces, finding themselves on the short end of a long exile. Here are 13 entertainers who have been banned by Saturday Night Live over the years.

Sinead O'Connor

Let's begin with arguably the most iconic Saturday Night Live moment to inspire a lifetime ban, as well as one of the series' most memorable moments ever. While Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor made it through her 1990 appearance without turmoil, her 1992 return was a bit more eventful. Things were going as planned during her a capella cover of Bob Marley's "War," until she pulled the rug out from beneath everyone, using the moment to protest the Catholic Church for the child abuse allegations making headlines at the time, most notably by ripping up a picture of Pope John Paul II. Lorne Michaels even let her say good night with the rest of the cast, and he was chastised accordingly.
