Kim Kardashian and Debra Messing were involved in a public spat seven months ago.
The altercation began when Messing expressed her confusion about Kardashian being chosen to host Saturday Night Live (SNL) on Twitter.
“Why Kim Kardashian? I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch. Am I missing something?” Messing wrote.
This tweet led to backlash and Messing later issued an apology, stating that she did not mean to troll Kardashian and recognized her as a cultural icon.
“I was not intending to troll her,” she said, according to E News!.
“And you know, if anybody took it that way, I apologize. That was never my intention. She is this phenomenon. I mean, you know, she is a cultural icon.”
Despite the controversy, Kardashian went on to host SNL successfully and even started a new relationship as a result.
Now, the premiere episode of The Kardashians, which aired on Hulu last Thursday, has finally revealed Kardashian’s thoughts on Messing’s comments.
In a scene where she is trying on looks for SNL, Kardashian said: “I’m the underdog. Everyone just thinks I’m a ditz.
“A girl from Will & Grace came out and said she has no idea why I would be chosen as a host, but it’s like, ‘Why do you care?’
“I don’t comment to tear people down, especially another female. If that’s what you think, dude, then cool, tune in.”
It is worth noting that SNL has not stated that hosts must be promoting something in order to appear on the show. In fact, Elon Musk hosted SNL without promoting anything.
Kardashian’s status as a cultural icon should be sufficient reason for her to host. It remains to be seen if Messing will have any further comments on the matter.
