“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Khloé Kardashian wasn’t pleased with Amy Schumer’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue on NBC this weekend, but the “Trainwreck” actress isn’t backing off. Schumer took to Twitter to defend herself after Kardashian expressed her dismay with the joke.
Schumer, 34, started out her message by clearing up any potential feud. “Nothing but love for that family,” she tweeted about the Kardashians Monday. But the comedian wasn’t willing to back off of the idea that women shouldn’t idolize celebrities who alter their bodies with cosmetic enhancements and plastic surgery. “I like [the] idea of sending women the message to be happy in their own skin. #peace,” she finished the post. The message was shared dozens of times and received more than 2,100 favorites from her 2.2 million followers.
Khloé Kardashian, 31, denies she had any plastic surgery, but her exterior has changed drastically in the past few years. She was accused of getting her butt plumped up -- either with implants or a fat transfer -- but maintains her skinny waist and curvy bottom evolved through fitness and healthy eating. “No need [to] tear down others just [to] make [yourself] feel bigger,” Kardashian wrote after Schumer’s “SNL” gig. “It actually makes [you] quite small. I'm on a healthy journey. I don't care for the hate.” The E! reality star added: “Left’s uplift one another!!! Happy Sunday! Stay smiling!!!”
The zinger that seemingly upset the youngest Kardashian sister began with Schumer saying that young girls don’t have many positive influences. “We have to be role models for these little girls, because who do they have? All they have literally is the Kardashians,” she said Saturday. “Is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women who take the faces they were born with as, like, a light suggestion.”
