VICE Allegedly Booted Desus & Mero 2 Months Early Because of Their Showtime Deal. Petty AF.
In fact, they said in a recent Bossip interview, they were treated pretty unfairly in general.
“We were carrying that network on our back, and we felt the weight,” Desus said. “They were talking about, ‘do not take the weeks off because we don’t get ratings,’ and it’s like, yo, we’re just two people.”
Mero added, “As a dad, you wanna be around for milestones for like graduations, birthdays…and it’s obnoxious to have to be like, ‘I can’t go to my kid’s graduation because we leave the studio at 3 o’clock and the graduation is at 4.’”
“The channel wanted us to die for this f**king network,” Desus continued. “We’re also the highest rated show on the network, put some respect on our name, have someone come massage my feet.”

“On Feb. 20, 2018, my son and I crossed the international bridge in Brownsville, Texas, and presented ourselves to US immigration officers,” the letter reads. “The US immigration officers then told me that they were taking my son from me. They said he would be going to one place and I would be going to another.”
