Using the tragic murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin as the backdrop, “Saturday Night Live” had a little fun at the expense of Piers Morgan and the latest round of media coverage surrounding Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, reports MSNBC.
While some thought the skit was hilarious, others believe that it was in
extremely bad taste.
Cast member Taran Killam reprised his role as Piers Morgan, and discussed the controversial Trayvon Martin case with a slew of famous figures, including Ozzie Guillen (played by Brolin), West (played by Pharoah), and Kim Kardashian, played by Nasim Pedrad.
“I feel for (Martin),” West said. “Maybe it’s just the black man in me.”
Replied Kardashian, “I also know what it feels like to have a black man in me.”
