Ouch! Kris and Bruce’s Oct. 8 announcement that they were separating opened the door for ridicule, and on the Oct. 12 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ the anchors of ‘Weekend Update’ really let the reality couple have it. Watch the disses below!
It’s Saturday Night Live’s job to rip on pop culture and current affairs, so for them, Kris and Bruce Jenner’s split was a gold mine. The anchors of “Weekend Update” really teed up on Oct. 12 and took shots at Kris and Bruce with joke after joke after joke.
‘SNL’ Disses Kris & Bruce Jenner Hard
Most topics on “Weekend Update” only get one joke each, but anchors Seth Meyers and Cicely Strong happily made an exception for Kris and Bruce. Just take a look at how Seth and Cicely batted the former couple back and forth like pinata:
Seth: Bruce and Kris Jenner confirmed this week that after 22 years of marriage they’re getting divorced. And if those two can’t make it, that makes perfect sense.
Cicely: Bruce and Kris Jenner confirmed this week that they’re getting divorced. No word yet on who gets to keep the haircut.
Seth: Bruce and Kris Jenner confirmed this week that they’ve decided to start looking like other people.
Cicely: Bruce and Kris Jenner confirmed this week that they’re getting divorced. “It’s sad, but I’m excited to start my new life as a single, middle-aged woman,” said Bruce.
Seth: It was confirmed this week that the comedy and tragedy masks are getting divorced.
Wow, SNL really let Kris and Bruce have it. And Seth and Cicely really seemed to love dishing it out!
Kris & Bruce Jenner: Happy After Split?
So how will Kris and Bruce take these shots? We’re thinking in stride, especially because they seem to be dealing with their split surprisingly well.
On Oct. 9, one day after the separation was confirmed, Kris and Bruce posed for a set of happy pictures with Bruce’s children. Brody Jenner captioned one of the photos, “@krisjenner and I are dating now and @sprandoni and Bruiser seem pretty chill about it hahah.”
So if Kris and Bruce can make jokes about their split, why can’t everyone else?
