A joke slated to be told during one of Kim Kardashian's "Saturday Night Live" skits was reportedly shut down after her estranged husband, Kanye West, demanded that it be removed.
The Sun said "SNL" writers wanted to reference a tweet during Kim's "People's Kourt" sketch in which Kanye referred to Kris Jenner as a "white supremacist." Back in July 28, 2020, the rapper posted a screenshot of unanswered text messages sent to his mother-in-law.
He tweeted, "White supremacy at its highest no cap." He later said, "Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that's not what a wife should do White supremacy."
In the skit —which featured actual tweets from Kanye — Kim played her sister Kourtney Kardashian as a judge.
"Originally the 'People's Kourt' sketch had more aggressive tweets Kanye had posted," a source told the Sun. "The writers wanted to include some from last summer, like calling Kim and Kris white supremacists, but Kim shut that down. Kris and Kanye agreed."
While the tweet was allegedly taken out, Kim did reference Kanye and her divorce in her monologue.
"I married the best rapper of all time. Not to mention the richest Black person in America," she said. "We also have four amazing kids, which is why when I divorced him, it came to just one thing, his personality."
Kim's performance on the NBC sketch comedy series was well regarded by critics, as she happily poked fun at herself and her famous family. The show also showed an uptick in ratings, bringing in 3.8 million viewers, up from the 3.5 million it garnered the week before with Owen Wilson hosting.
