Kel Mitchell

Kenan Kinda Dissed Me, But ...

I'll Give Him Another Chance

4/1/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kenan and Kel Kids Choice Awards DissKenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell came thiiiiiis close to squashing their longstanding beef at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards -- Kel totally thought it was happening ... and then it didn't. 

We caught up with Kel in Sherman Oaks Monday, and he told our camera guy he was under the impression during their segment Sunday night ... Kenan would give him a shout out.

For everyone above the age of 12 who missed it -- Nickelodeon gave one of the executive producers of "Kenan & Kel" a Lifetime Achievement award, and Thompson sent in a recorded speech where he never acknowledged working with Kel.

Sources close to Kenan say it wasn't meant to be a diss ... producers didn't tell him to mention Kel until after the piece had been filmed and he was too busy for a re-shoot.

Kel says he's not mad -- and even offers one final plea to Kenan in regard to a reunion.

Watch ... it has nothing to do with orange soda.

Exclusive? Yes, it is exclusive to TMZ because no other celebrity site gives a crap about this guy. As is the case with most of TMZ's so-called exclusives. That also explains why so many comments are one word---WHO?

Kenan is a fat, unfunny sack of shyt, I hope his gold digging skanky white wife who wouldn't touch him if he wasn't on TV bangs a funny SNL cast member

He needed to be told to mention his co-star of their wildly successful show? Unless Kel did something terrible to him Keenan is a complete a hole.

Kel was always the talented one of that duo. Can't believe SNL hired the wrong dude.

Kenan needs to be let go from SNL. He can't change his voice or do Impressions. He is about as funny as getting rubbing alcohol poured into your Eye.

Why would someone have to remind you to give a shout out to the co-star of the show? And you're too busy to reshoot an one minute clip? I'm calling BS! If you don't like him, just say it, and stop leading him to believe you all are cool again.

Kenan, you stink. Where are your morals? Where is your consideration and common decency? What you've done to Kel, well, you're the one who has to live with himself. I wonder how people justify their actions. Kenan totally sucks. He isn't even that funny. Less funny because he is a poor example of a human being. Media, people prefer Kel. Get his career going! !!! TEAM KEL!!!!

Kel seems like a cool dude who knows what to say in front of a camera. And it looks like he's got a decent pump going so at least he's doing alright

What a d-bag.. I love how kenan thinks he soo much better. He's on the worst cast of snl I've ever seen. he tried to be in movies and failed horribly. He's just as much a "has been" as kel.. and to not give the man props for basically setting up your career.. its pretty low. Kel was the reason that show was good. PERIOD.
