I think people might not get that we’re absolutely in on the joke. We always have been. It is what it is. I especially couldn’t really give a f**k what anyone ever says and thinks. And so, I was just like, ‘Listen, if I’m going to do this, I want you guys to know we’re in on this. This is what we talk about when we’re at home.’ We have a sense of humour. We roast each other as a family all day long. None of us are sensitive to it. I wanted people to see a part of my personality that all my friends know, that everyone close to me knows. But you know, SNL was a completely different audience for me. It was my opportunity. I wanted to show people that this is funny, and this is a big side of my personality too. And it was fun. – Kim Kardashian West
