Even though it was predicted in the ancient text known as Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Jessica Williams destroyed our hopes and dreams on Sunday night when she tweeted that she wouldn’t be taking over as host of The Daily Show

In a string of classy but disappointing tweets, Williams outlined why it wasn’t her time yet and corrected people who weren’t familiar with black women’s hair.

Perhaps sensing our disappointment, Williams quickly slapped the tears off our faces and gave us something to look forward to.
