What could be the purpose for why she tweeted it?
Emmy winner Debra Messing is demonstrating her innocence over past remark about “Saturday Night Live” choice of picking Kim Kardashian-West as one of their hosts.
“Why Kim Kardashian?” she tweeted after “SNL” declared Kim will be a piece of the show’s host setup. “I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but ‘SNL’ has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch.”
During the entertainer far off appearance on the “Tamron Hall Show,” she explained that the tweet didn’t mean any mischief or does exclude cynicism.
“Well, I was not intending to troll her, and you know if anybody took it that way, I apologize,” Messing told Hall. “That was never my intention. She is this phenomenon. I mean, you know, she is a cultural icon.”
“I am someone who grew up with ‘SNL.’ I love comedy,” Messing proceeded. “And they have had for decades this sort of formula, and I noticed that they changed the formula. And I was like, ‘Oh, does she have a new TV show coming out? Does she have a book coming out? Does she have a movie?’ And she didn’t have anything coming out; actually, her TV show had just wrapped.”
“I was just confused, and I thought, ‘I have been living under a rock, I don’t have my finger on the pulse of pop culture,’” she further added.
“So, I was like, ‘Has she been doing something on the side that I’m not aware of because I’ve been so focused on activism?’ Clearly it was interpreted differently.”
The “Will & Grace” star also revealed that she did watch the SKIMS founder “SNL” episode and was rooting for her.
“If you know me and you follow me, then you know that I consistently lift up women. I support women, so I hope that people understand that that was never my intention.”
