Debra Messing did not expect to be roasted online when she questioned the choice of hosts for next season’s “Saturday Night Live”, especially Kim Kardashian.
The “Will and Grace” star was spotted asking why she co-hosted the comedy show with the reality TV star. Kardashian will reportedly join actors Rami Malik, Jason Sodecas and Owen Wilson for live streams on Moore.
Glitch Tweeted A photo of Variety’s announcement and asked if he was “missing something?” He wrote, “Why Kim Kardashian? I mean, I know he’s a cultural icon, but SNL hosts, in general, who are the actors who make movies, TV shows, or albums. They’re there to promote the launch. Do I remember anything? “
Fans of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star jumped to their defense and gave a number of reasons why the mother of four could host. For one, she is said to be promoting her new show on Hulu. Another said that she can help in advertising as she has more influence on social media as she has millions of followers compared to the actress.
“Let’s see, you have 600,000 ish Twitter followers and less than 70 million. Maybe this should be your first hint. Obviously, it has a platform bigger than 95% of celebrities and SNL is very smart. “You’re not surprised,” replied one fan.
Another wrote, “Why Debra Messing? I mean this actress says in your bio but I have never heard of you or any of your work. Do I remember anything?”
Kardashian has many new plans despite the end of “Stay with Kardashian”. In addition to the new product launch for SKIMS, she was one of the voice actors in the movie “Pow Patrol”. According to one fan, she is also “an amazing person” who is doing more for people in prison than any other celebrity.
However, there were those who agreed with Messing and wondered why “Saturday Night Live” chose Kardashian. But the 40-year-old reality TV star couldn’t be more excited as she tweeted, “There’s no need to look back now.” She is set to host the show on October 9 with singer Halsi.
