'SNL' Fans Are in Their Feelings Over Kim Kardashian Hosting

Surprise! Kim Kardashian is hosting Saturday Night Live on October 9, and while some of us cannot wait for her to (hopefully) arrive in her Met Gala outfit and do an impression of a sleep paralysis demon, the internet at large is…conflicted. By which I mean there’s a lot of backlash.

Unfortunately, SNL’s Instagram comments are pretty much filled with fans who aren’t here for the news that Kim is hosting, with harsh comments like “Ewwww gross nobody wants to see Kim kardashian what are y’all thinking. Hard pass,” “Note to self, skip the Oct 9th show,” and “Please NO Kardashians.”

Meanwhile, Twitter is more of a mixed bag, with some people excited for Kim to step in as a host, and others questioning the choice. Like actress Debra Messing, who hopped on Twitter and wrote “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?”

(Psst: Kim is currently promoting her brand, Skims, not to mention her family’s upcoming show with Hulu.)
