Wow! Andy Samberg opened up the 2015 Emmys with a hilarious monologue that took shots at plenty of celebs. Andy ripped into Paula Deen, who’s now a contestant on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ saying that if he wanted to see an ‘intolerant’ woman dance, he’d go to one of Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis’s four weddings!
Nobody was off limits for Andy Samberg, 37 when he opened the 2015 Emmys Awards. During his hilarious speech, The Lonely Island star made cracks about celebs like Bill Cosby, 78, and Jared Fogle, 38. He even blasted Paula Deen, 68, and Kim Davis, 57, with a single joke!
The biggest names in television were laughing in the aisles of the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles during the 67th Emmy Awards. At the start of the Sept. 20 broadcast, Andy made sure to poke fun at Paula Deen for being cast in the latest season of Dancing With The Stars.
“If I wanted to see an intolerant lady dance,” Andy said, “I would have gone to one of Kim Davis’s four weddings.” Boom! Burn. Andy clearly wasn’t happy with Paula managing to get back on television after the racist scandal that forced her off the Food Network. She hasn’t stayed out of trouble — Paula was also in hot water after she posted a “Brownface” photo with her son, Bobby Deen.

It took Andy to connect Paula’s use of the n-word to Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who went to jail after she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples — even though it was revealed she had been married four times and also had illegitimate children! Most of the audience at the Emmys laughed at Andy’s joke. It was pretty funny! Andy made sure to tear into Donald Trump, calling him ‘racist,’ while he was at it!
Andy opened up the show with a spectacular skit. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star busted out an amazing musical number about how he spent a whole year watching every show on television. After he saw every show — and we mean, EVERY show — Andy sang why he’s qualified to host the 2015 Emmys. After listing off every single show with the word “Wife” or “Wives” in the title, Andy also said he was best for the job because he’s white! What?!
What do you think about Andy’s diss on Paula and Kim, HollywoodLifers? Did you think his opening number go too far or was it great?
