Amy Schumer Takes Aim at Gun Rights and the Kardashians in First SNL Appearance

Amy Schumer Takes Aim at Gun Rights and the Kardashians in First SNL Appearance

Amy Schumer's first hosting gig on Saturday Night Live went off without a hitch.

As host, the comedian-actress mixed her brand of profane humor during an opening monologue with a body-positive message. Taking aim at the lack of role models for young girls in pop culture, Schumer targeted the Kardashians in particular for selling a fake version of themselves to the public.

Schumer told the audience about an incident in which a young co-star overheard she had "big cheeks" during the filming of Trainwreck and added, "We have to be a role model for these little girls, because who do they have? All they have, literally, is the Kardashians."

"Is that a great suggestion for little girls?" Schumer continued. "A whole family who take the faces they were born with as a light suggestion?"

"We used to have Khloe," Schumer said. "Khloe was ours, right? Whenever there's a group of women, you identify with one of them ... Khloe, she lost half her body weight. She lost a Kendall! We have nothing. I want good role models."

Later in the program, Schumer (a prominent gun control activist) satirized the United States' gun obsession in a sketch, joking, "Whatever you're waiting for. Whatever you face. Whatever you're looking for. There are things we all share. Love. Family. Connection. A sense of purpose. And also — guns."
