Kristen Wiig's final SNL spawns thousands of online tears

This past weekend on Saturday NIght Live, the show said a final goodbye to cast member Kristen Wiig. It ended on a sweet note with Kristen holding back tears as she danced with her cast members and some SNL alums. The last dance was with Lorne Michaels who whispered in her ear, “If you don’t return for another season on my show I will eat your firstborn child.” I guess her first child will be eaten by Lorne. Weird. You know who else was upset about her leaving SNL? Dawson. And lots of people on the Internet.

Some female fans felt compelled to post on the web photos of themselves crying during SNL’s farewell to Kristen Wiig, which you can watch here:

Buzzfeed was good enough to compile some of the web’s tears for us. This reminds me of the Crying While Eating meme that took off in 2005. The name is pretty self-explanatory. For awhile people posted videos of themselves crying while eating. Like with many memes, you do not ask why. You just merely accept and move on.
