‘Saturday Night Live’ had everyone in stitches over its recent ‘Waking Up With Kimye’ holiday sketch — well, everyone but Kimye, that is. A source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kanye is pretty worked up over the bit from the Dec. 21 episode.
Kanye West ‘Wasn’t Happy’ About ‘SNL’ Diss
“Waking Up With Kimye” has quickly become an SNL favorite due to Jay Pharaoh and Nasim Pedrad‘s spot-on impressions of the famous couple, but at least one half of the real-life pair isn’t having it.
The Dec. 21 sketch mocked Kim’s recent weight-loss in its typically not-so-nice fashion. “I’m starring in a book!” Kim gloated as she stared at a cover of Us Weekly. “My genius fiancee’s body is back to a size I deem acceptable!” Kanye added. Yikes.
And how did Kim lose that weight? “Through a healthy diet, regular exercise, and Photoshop!” Kim said with glee, though we found out later from Kanye that Kim’s diet consists of “not eating anymore” and “not getting hungry anymore.” It was more than a little harsh, and a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the joke was not well received.
“Kim and Kanye both saw [the Dec. 21 sketch],” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kanye doesn’t think it’s funny at all, but Kim doesn’t really care. As long as they aren’t making fun of North it’s okay.”
However, the source did add that the couple might not be opposed to making a future cameo.
“Maybe Kim and Kanye will make their own appearance on SNL in one of those skits, imagine that?” the source continued. “[But] Kanye wasn’t happy they made fun of “Bound 2″ because they put a lot of work into that.” (Uhh, did you really expect people not to make fun of “Bound 2,” Kanye?)
