Kanye West was not laughing when Kim Kardashian made a joke at his expense while hosting “SNL.”
During the latest episode of “The Kardashians,” the Skims mogul revealed that her ex walked out while she was delivering her monologue because he was not happy with her choice of words.
“He wished I said the word ‘filed’ for divorce,” Kim told her sister Khloé, according to E! Online. “And 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.’”
However, Kim said her intention was not to offend the father of her four kids. “It’s all fun and games,” she said during a confessional. “And, apparently, it wasn’t to him.”
Kim did express her frustration, noting that she stood by Ye during “speeches and things that have not been the most comfortable for me.” While Kim said Kanye is “so used to getting exactly what he wants,” this time she wasn’t willing to give in to his demands. “It’s not gonna happen here,” she said.
In a previous episode of her Hulu series, Kim revealed that she nixed a joke in the “People’s Kourt” skit because she was worried that it was insensitive to Ye.
“The divorce is so sensitive for him,” Kim said. “I’m already saying that part in the monologue, I don’t want to like… maybe I could talk to Chris [Redd] and think of something funny. I could just tell him, ‘Hey! This is super sensitive to him.’”
The “SNL” monologue wasn’t the only source of upset for Ye. He previously shared his distaste when Kim kissed Pete Davidson, who she started dating after “SNL,” during an Aladdin-themed skit.
“People intentionally do things to be mean and hurt you and to be playing games, and then culturally it’s OK,” Ye told Hollywood Unlocked. “How you gonna bring me to ‘SNL’ and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me? And everybody’s like, ‘Oh, that’s cool.’”
