Amy Schumer Goes After the Kardashians in Amazing SNL Opening Monologue

Daily Mixx Fixx



Comedy superstar Amy Schumer hosted this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live like a champ.  Not only was the show a hit (with most sketches being downright hilarious), Schumer also treated audiences to a short stand up set as her opening monologue.  The set ranged from everything from Bradley Cooper and Hillary Clinton to her new 18-month-old niece.  However, Schumer took a particular pleasure in hitting out at the Kardashians.


In her bit, Schumer mentioned she was worried about the role models we have for women.  And how she had to be a role model for little girls particularly when talking about body image.


“We have to be a role model for these little girls. Because who do they have? All they have, literally, is the Kardashians,” said Schumer.  “And is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women who take the faces they were born with as a light suggestion?”


She went on to say: “We used to have Khloé,” and make fun of Khloé Kardashian’s recent surgeries. She also referred to Khloé’s weight loss by saying: “She lost a Kendall.”


While Schumer may not be a paragon, she certainly is a self-made woman who has worked hard to get to her place in comedy.  She is also someone who’s never been too worried about self-image, making fun of herself and the men who don’t considerable “hot enough” in her sketches and standup.
