Kanye West ‘Demanded’ that ‘Saturday Night Live’ to Cut The Joke about Kris Jenner’s Old Tweet

The “Gold Digger” rapper, 44, allegedly ordered his estranged wife Kim Kardashian — who hosted the sketch show — “not to joke about an old tweet calling Kris Jenner a ‘white supremacist,’” The Sun reported.

The tweet in question was shared to West’s Twitter account in July 2020, while he was battling bipolar disorder.

“White supremacy at its highest no cap,” West tweeted on July 28, 2020, beneath a screenshot of unanswered text messages sent to mother-in-law Jenner.

“This Ye. You ready to talk now r are you still avoiding my calls?” the musician wrote to Jenner, 65, in one message.

“This Ye,. You wanna talk now or go to war?” West then sent in a follow-up text.

“SNL” writers allegedly wanted to reference the tweet in a “People’s Kourt” sketch, which featured Kardashian herself.

“Originally the People’s Kourt sketch had more aggressive tweets Kanye had posted,” a source reportedly told The Sun.

“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.”

Reps for West did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment on the new claims. “SNL” spokespeople declined to comment on the matter. However, a production insider told The Post the reports are “not true.”

Kardashian’s hosting debut on Saturday night’s show was praised by fans and provided a ratings boost for the program.

“SNL” drew in 3.8 million viewers this past weekend, Deadline reported, up from the 3.5 million it garnered when Owen Wilson hosted the week before.

And while Kardashian allegedly nixed the joke about Kanye’s “white supremacist” tweet, she still poked fun of him in her opening monologue.

“I married the best rapper of all time. Not to mention the richest black person in America,” she stated.

“We also have four amazing kids, which is why when I divorced him, it came down to just one thing — his personality,” she quipped.

Meanwhile, she also mocked her ex’s run for president.

Kardashian teased her own run for political office before dropping the punchline: “I’m not running for president — we can’t have three failed politicians in one family,” referencing West’s presidential bid and her step-parent Caitlyn Jenner’s run for governor of California.
