Kanye West Refused to Appear on Saturday Night Live If Kim Kardashian Jokes Were Used
Kanye West is apparently the reason that Saturday Night Live has been taking it easy on Kim Kardashian during her pregnancy. The ever-reliable Enguirer reports that writers for SNL kept trying to write jokes but creator Lorne Michaels kept nixing them because he was trying to get Kanye as a musical guest.
An insider said, “Kanye, who’s been on ‘SNL’ before, warned he wouldn’t appear if they made fun of Big Momma…Execs kept assuring him it wouldn’t happen, so he finally agreed to guest on the show’s May 18 season finale. But those hilarious rejected scripts will never be aired – and they were priceless!”
