Kim Kardashian has replied to actress Debra Messing’s 2021 tweet in which she chastised her for hosting an episode of the comedy sketch program Saturday Night Live.
The 41-year-old fashion designer lambasted Messing in the inaugural episode of her new Hulu series The Kardashians, which premiered on Thursday.
“A girl from Will & Grace came out and said she has no clue why I would be picked as a host, but it’s like, why do you care,” the SKIMS creator stated in response to Messing’s tweet.
“I don’t remark to bring down other individuals, particularly another female,” she continued. “If that’s what you’re thinking, guy, then tune in.”
Previously, in September 2021, shortly after Kardashian‘s presence as a host on SNL was revealed, Messing tweeted, “Why Kim Kardashian? I mean, I get she is a cultural icon, but SNL has traditionally invited artists who are there to promote a film, TV program, or record release. Is there anything I’m missing?”
Meanwhile, on October 9, 2021, Kim had an unexpectedly successful SNL hosting debut. During the performance, she also met her now-boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson, who played the Disney pair Jasmin and Aladdin.
Later, The Wrap reported that the episode scored the season’s highest rating in the important 18-49 demographic.
