Despite the backlash, Kim Kardashian made her appearance on SNL last night
On 10th October, Kim Kardashian made her debut as an SNL host. Dressed in a head-to-toe pink outfit, she delivered the monologue. From the beginning, she targeted her family and ex-husband and poked fun at them. She talked about how her father, Robert Kardashian introduced her to the first Black man. For those who don’t know, her father was a part of OJ Simpson’s defense team in the 90s. After that, Kim Kardashian joked that her sisters show her picture to their plastic surgeons. Furthermore, she made fun of Kanye West running for president and said:
“I know we’re divided as a country but I’d love America to come together, which I why I’m here to announce that I’m running for…I’m just kidding. I’m not running for president. We can’t have three failed politicians in one family.”
Kim Kardashian did not stop there and added:
“I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest Black man in America – a talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids. So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing – his personality. I know that sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth and if there’s one thing I always strive to be it’s genuine.”
