Naturally, Kanye West was a big baby about Kim Kardashian's SNL monologue
- TV Show
Kanye West may be a billionaire, a 24-time Grammy winner, and a musical genius — but if you prick him, does he not bleed?
The one-time presidential candidate revealed himself to be a full-time grumpus when his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, hosted Saturday Night Live last October. As Kim revealed in this week's episode of The Kardashians on Hulu, West was so offended by her SNL monologue that he stormed out before she was even done.
"He walked out on SNL, like mid-monologue," said Kim, after her sister Khloé asked how things were going with her soon-to-be-ex-husband. In the monologue, Kim referred to the father of her children as "the best rapper of all time," and "a talented, legit genius" — and then joked that the only reason she was divorcing him was "his personality."
But that's not what got under West's very thin skin. "He's upset at the fact that I said, 'The reason I divorced him,' used the word 'divorced' — he wished I said the word 'filed for divorce,'" Kim explained to Khloé. "He was upset that I also said he was a rapper. He said, 'I'm so much more than a rapper. I can't believe you said 'rapper.'"
The, uh, multi-hyphenate's overreaction felt particularly hypocritical to Kim given the many, many times West made a spectacle of himself during their marriage — whether hanging out with Donald Trump or tearfully telling a crowd of strangers that he and Kim considered terminating one of her pregnancies. "I sat there through so many speeches and things that haven't been the most comfortable for me," she vented to Khloé on The Kardashians. "But that was my partner and I stood by him, I would never embarrass him and walk out."
A judge declared Kim Kardashian "legally single" in March of this year, thereby rendering her free to joke about West's personality all she wants without fear of repercussions or temper tantrums.
