Kanye West reportedly demanded that SNL cut a joke about his tweet calling Kris Jenner a white supremacist.
His ex-wife Kim Kardashian hosted Saturday Night Live last weekend and took the opportunity to throw some serious shade at her famous family.
However, it seems as though Kanye was not too happy about being the target of the jokes.
It’s claimed the 44-year-old “shut down” material in Kim’s ‘People’s Kourt’ sketch during her debut.
The sketch showed Kim imitating her sister Kourtney Kardashian as a judge, who is ruling on her family’s court cases and featured surprise cameos from her mother Kris, and sister Khloe Kardashian.
One joke was reportedly meant to be included surrounding Kanye’s tweet, where he accused the 40-year-old’s momager Kris of “white supremacy” while battling his bipolar disorder.
However, Kim reportedly insisted that the joke be cut out of the sketch, with the agreement of Kanye and Kris.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said: "Originally the People’s Kourt sketch had more aggressive tweets Kanye has posted.

"The writers wanted to include some from last summer, like calling Kim and Kris white suprematists but Kim shut that down.
"Kris and Kanye agreed.”
The tweet was from July last year in which Kanye had tweeted a screenshot of a conversation allegedly between himself and Kris.
"This Ye, you ready to talk now or are still avoiding my calls?" he asked her, before saying in another message: "This Ye, you wanna talk or go to war?”

Kanye had captioned the screenshot: "White supremacy at its highest no cap”.
He later added: "Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that's not what a wife should do White supremacy.”
In the People's Kourt sketch, comedian Chris Redd played Kanye complaining about some of his tweets and insisting that he had been hacked, while Heidi Garner playing Kim refuted his claims.
The tweets in question were: "Who's seen the play Wicked? I seen it four times," and "What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery," and "Wiz Khalifa, I like your pants.”
Kim still managed to target Kanye and her divorce in her opening monologue, however, saying: "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.”
