Saturday Night Live Poke Fun At Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
"React how you want. Any energy you got is good energy," West said. "I represented slavery, my abstract take on what I know about it, I wrote 'New Slaves.' So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. What are you going to do?"
The rapper's response made it all the way to writers on Saturday Night Live, with new "Weekend Update" anchor Cecily Strong referencing the AMP interview for a Kanye West-directed joke.
"Kanye West this week defended his use of the Confederate flag in his new line of merchandise, saying that he's now made it his flag," Strong said in the set-up before delivering the punchline, "said Kanye, 'whenever I see something that upsets people, I make it mine,'" accompanied by a picture of West with his new fiancee, Kim Kardashian.
