Kim Kardashian West Opens Saturday Night Live With Edgy O.J. Simpson Joke and Jabs at Her Family
Kim Kardashian West opened her hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live” with a rapid-fire string of edgy jokes about her family, including a nod her father’s history of defending accused double-murderer O.J. Simpson.
Wearing a bright pink body suit, Kardashian West made a reference to her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian, who was a close friend of Simpson. She noted that her father introduced her to the first Black person that she ever met. “Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was?” she said with a grin. She addressed Simpson’s sordid history. Having known Simpson “does leave a mark,” she said. “Or several. Or none at all. I still don’t know.”
Simpson, the former NFL great, was acquitted of the brutal murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in 1995.
Kardashian West, who is in the process of divorcing hip hop superstar Kanye West, recently wrapped her 15-year run on E!’s reality series “Keeping Up With the Kardashian.” She took aim head on at the question of why she would host the NBC late-night institution at a time when she is between big TV projects.
She even noted the initial source of her notoriety of being featured in a sex tape that made the rounds in the mid-2000s, and she took a shot at her mother’s reputation as a relentless manager and marketer of her family.
“I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time,” she said with a knowing wink to the sex tape: “No one even told me it was premiering. It must’ve slipped by mom’s mind.”
