When Kim Kardashian West opened up for SNL, no one would have guessed that the celeb would fire a series of edgy jokes about her family. No one would have also believed that she had made a joke about her father’s history of having defended O.J. Simpson.
Decked in a bright pink bodysuit, Kim began with a reference to her father, the late Robert Kardashian, introducing her to O.J, Simpson, who was a close friend of his. Kim joked about this, asking the audience to ‘take a stab in the dark’ and guess who it was- bringing to light O.J. ‘s history of stabbing his ex-wife and her friend, leading to their deaths.

Kim Kardashian West then spoke about how knowing Simpson was quite a confusing thought- did it leave a mark on her? Or did it never really affect her that great to be once close to a murderer? The former NFL great was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman back in 1995. In the SNL episode, Kim also had John Cena, Chris Rock, and her mother Kris Jenner, as the surprise guest appearances.
Kim Kardashian West has never been one to not be in the news. Recently, the fashionista decided to file for divorce from Kanye West after seven years of marriage and also wrapped her reality series- which had been going for 15 years- ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’. This led her to put the target head-on when she was asked as to why she would be taking the offer of hosting SNL when she was between several other projects.
After she had finished her monologue, Kim Kardashian also came up in an ‘Aladdin’ themed flying carpet with comedian Pete Davidson. This was then followed by her starring in her own ‘Bachelorette’- a type of dating reality show.
