Kanye West apparently was not much thrilled with Kim Kardashian’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.
In a new episode of Hulu, Kim Kardashian claimed that her ex got up and left after she joked about their divorce and referred to him as “a rapper.”
“He walked out on ‘SNL’ like in the mid of monologue, so I haven’t talked to him since,” Kim told her sister Khloé while they were taking a stroll in Calabasas, Calif., in October 2021.
“He is really upset with the reason I said I divorced him — she used the word ‘divorced’ — he wished I’d say the word ‘filed for divorce,’” Kim continued…. “And he is also upset with the fact that I also used the word ‘rapper.’ He told, ‘I’m so much more than a rapper. I can’t believe you said rapper.’”
Kim also told Khloé, that she is upset he left, considering how she was stuck by his side during his own speeches over the years.
“I’ve sat through so many speeches of Kanye that have not been the most comfortable for me, but he was my partner so, I stood by him. I would never do anything to embarrass him and walk out and leave,” Kim said.
“He’s very used to getting exactly what he wants … I have never seen anything like it. Good for him,but it’s not going to happen here.”

Kim Kardashian also gave a flash of the embarrassing moment that aired during the episode of a confessional, explaining that it wasn’t her intention to hurt the Yeezy founder’s feelings.
“I never want to offend anyone and I never want to hurt anyone. But also that’s what this monologue was for; it was to make a joke,” she said. “I made fun of myself and I made fun of my mom. I made fun of everything that’s personal to me and it’s all fun and apparently it wasn’t to him.”
Kim further explained that Kanye’s actions are an eye-opening moment for her. It made Kim realize that she needs to focus more on herself instead of trying to make things like before.
“We have four kids together. I always want to have a good, healthy relationship with him,” she said. “But after ‘SNL’ happened, I felt like, ‘OK, I need to focus on the [California] bar and I need to get new energy.’”
Kim hosted this “SNL” in October 2021, when she poked fun at the “Flashing Lights” artist during her opening monologue.
“I mean, I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest black man in America, a talented, legit genius, who gave me four incredible kids,”. “So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality.”
She also added that, “I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine.”
The episode of ‘The Kardashian’ was filmed during the final month of 2021. Kanye West started speaking about his ex-wife Kim in early 2022, openly on social media and also dissing her in his music.
Kim Kardashian is currently dating “SNL” comedian Pete Davidson, and West has been very negative about their relationship that Grammy banned the rapper from performing at the ceremony.
Currently, Kim is declared legally single since March 2022, after the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging “emotional distress”. She filed for expedited divorce proceedings.
