Kanye’s ‘SNL skit upset’

Kanye West is said to be upset over last weekend’s Saturday Night Live sketch parodying him and Kim Kardashian.

The 36-year-old Yeezus rapper and his fiancee Kim Kardashian were parodied in the American TV show’s Waking Up with Kimye sketch over the weekend.

And it is claimed Kanye didn’t find it entertaining whatsoever.

“Kim and Kanye both saw [the sketch],” a source told Hollywood Life.

“Kanye doesn’t think it’s funny at all, but Kim doesn’t really care. As long as they aren’t making fun of [their daughter] North it’s okay.”

Kanye released a raunchy video starring Kim for his single Bound 2 last month.

SNL performers Jay Pharoah and Nasim Pedrad simulated a reindeer flight mimicking the simulated motorcycle sex in his Bound 2 promo, and the rapper is said to be upset with the joke.

“Maybe Kim and Kanye will make their own appearance on SNL in one of those skits, imagine that?” the source mused before adding, “[But] Kanye wasn’t happy they made fun of Bound 2 because they put a lot of work into that.”

The SNL skit mocked Kim Kardashian’s recent pregnancy weight loss, with Nasim in character stating, “I’m starring in a book!” while staring at the cover of tabloid Us Weekly magazine. After this observation, Jay’s Kanye character jumped in with his thoughts on the matter, remarking “My genius fiancee’s body is back to a size I deem acceptable!”

The sketch aired in the US on Saturday December 21.

Kanye’s Bound 2 video has also been parodied by actor James Franco and funnyman Seth Rogen.
