SNL: Amy Schumer dings Kardashians during opening monologue

Posted on

NBC

Amy Schumer delivered an eight-minute-long stand-up set to kick off her Saturday Night Live hosting debuthitting topics from Bradley Cooper to Hillary Clinton, Jessica Alba, and her 18-month-old niece, but also took particular aim at the Kardashians.

After discussing whether or not now is a good time for women in Hollywood, the Inside Amy Schumer and Trainwreck star criticized the famous family as she lamented a lack of role models for young girls.

“We have to be a role model for these little girls. Because who do they have? All they have, literally, is the Kardashians,” Schumer said. “And is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women who take the faces they were born with as a light suggestion?”

Earlier this year, Schumer memorably flung herself at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s feet on the red carpet at the Time 100 gala. When asked why she decided to do it, she explained that she was being interviewed at the event when reporters got distracted by someone behind her. When she turned around, she saw “Kim and Kanye standing there, just owning it, just being short and important. And I think falling is the funniest thing, so I took a dive in front of them.”
