Actor Ryan Reynolds, in character as Deadpool, spoofed Kanye West's recent backstage rant on SNL in a profanity-laced video Friday (Feb. 19) explaining why he won't host the comedy sketch program. The hilarious clip is response to a petition urging the "powers that be" at SNL to consider him.

"Listen up, Lorne Michaels," Deadpool begins, referencing SNL's creator. "SNL took my f--king Life of Pablo album without asking. Now I'm bummed. That and Rip Taylor -- fake ass! Imma break the motherf--king internet."

During West's SNL appearance on Feb. 13, the rapper had an outburst backstage, where he was recorded saying, "Don't f--k with me. Look at that shit, they took my f--kin' stage off of SNL without asking me. Now I'm bummed. That and Taylor Swift fake ass."

"I've got the biggest opening rated-R movie of all time," Deadpool continues in the video. "Are they f--king crazy? I'm 50 percent more influential than MC Hammer, Apostle Judas Iscariot, the KIA Sorrento, 10 percent more influential than Barbara Bush, the Muppets, Bob Newhart. 60 percent more influential than the iPhone 5, shredded cheese and Dr. Ruth, 7 percent less influential than the Urban Dictionary."
