Celebrity Stand-Up Comedian Amy Schumer Cites Celebrity Rapper Kanye West’s Anti-Semitic Posts on SNL Monologue
Celebrity stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer, this weekend, took over hosting duties for Saturday Night Live, and in her opening monologue, she spoke about Kanye West’s contentious anti-Semitic remarks. The 41-year-old comic made a passing allusion to the rapper, also known as Ye, while talking about her autistic spouse Chris Fischer.
The comedian during her comeback to Saturday Night Live, she made a quick, scathing allusion to “Nazi” Kanye West.
During her opening monologue, Schumer, 41, who was headlining the venerable sketch programme for the third time overall and for the first time since 2018, made fun of West’s recent anti-Semitic remarks. The “Life and Beth” actor explained to the audience that her spouse has autism spectrum disorder, which was formerly known as Asperger’s Syndrome.
The actress said, ‘It used to be called Asperger’s, but then they found out that Dr. Asperger had Nazi ties, Kanye…’ The creator of ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ appeared to act as if she had not meant to say that. She tapped her microphone and intoned, ‘That’s weird.’
In the show’s finale, Schumer wore a baseball T-shirt that said, “<3 Jews,” and seemed to make reference to both West and suspended Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving’s recent string of anti-Semitic remarks.
The veteran comedian also alluded to the approaching elections by making light of the fact that she was hosting the final program prior to the “midterm abortions” and then broke off saying, What did I say? Sorry, I was thinking about what’s at stake if we don’t vote.’
Twice before, Schumer served as the show’s host. Ahead of her film Trainwreck, she made her acting debut in October 2015. In May 2018, she once again served as host. The remarks were the most recent attack on West, who has recently come under fire for remarks he made last month that were perceived as anti-Semitic.
Although the celebrity rapper has a history of erratic outbursts on social media and was given a bipolar disorder diagnosis in 2016, this year has seen an increase in the frequency of his rants. While West didn’t retract his comments, he did add that the controversy had “humble” him by costing him an estimated $1 billion in commercial negotiations.
