Casey Wilson wants to dispel the rumor that she got the boot from “Saturday Night Live” for being too fat.

“I had an amazing time on ‘SNL,’ and these rumors are completely untrue,” Wilson tells People. “And to clarify, the issue isn’t that I’m too fat, it’s that I’m too phat. Can I get a WHAT-WHAT!”

It was reported earlier that “SNL” producers told Wilson, 28, to lose 30 pounds, and when she returned from summer hiatus the same weight, she was fired. A rep for the show denies these reports.

Take a look at Wilson for yourself:

Frankly, we’re not thrilled about hearing this rumor, especially when there are real obesity issues in America. Naturally the entertainment industry puts value on appearance, but we don’t think Wilson even comes close to fat. This is the same thing that happened when some of the “Dancing With the Stars” pros and Jessica Simpson put on a little weight.
