'The Daily Show's Jessica Williams Reacts to Petition Saying She Should Get Colbert's Slot

"There’s a change.org petition going around that is asking for Comedy Central to give me my own spot after The Daily Show! People keep bringing it up to me and it’s like, a strange thing to ignore (for the sole purpose of being politically correct). SO I want to like, take a moment and say thank you to those that created it and signed it … That being said, I’m sure Comedy Central already has something dope in the works to take that particular spot … I’m sure it will be great and funny and wonderful! I can’t wait to see what it is … Also know that right now I am in the middle of creating and working on some VERY dope things. Not necessarily the exact way that you lovelies have envisioned it, maybe something, dare I say it- ESPECIALLY & MAGNIFICENTLY DOPER. Y’all shall see soon, ya hear?!"
