‘The low of all lows. Pure trash’

Social media users hating Kim, took to Twitter to slam her SNL hosting debut. “No but literally this game is stupid and I’m not well and this cannot be the energy I take into @KimKardashian being on @nbcsnl tonight. So Alabama, kindly, GET YOUR S**T TOGETHER”, said one user as another chimed in and spoke about watching Trump rally, “The same thing I'll do instead of watching Kim Kardashian on @nbcsnl... have intelligent conversations with knowledgable, sophisticated, moral, compassionate, science loving, truth telling people.”
 
The next one added, “Kim Kardashian is hosting SNL. They couldn't get Jessica Rabbit?  What a joke. Mindy Kaling, Kathryn Hahn, Carol Burnett, Wanda Sykes and Tig Notaro are out there and KK is the best you can come up with?” Meanwhile, one person asserted, “@KimKardashian @nbcsnl The low of All lows. Pure trash. SNL you are better than this.  Her family are con artist.” Another user tweeted, “SNL is going to be an absolute train wreck tonight with Kim Kardashian hosting.” And, one posted, “I won’t be watching. Get a host with real talent” as another pitched in and said, “I am not going to be rushing to SNL to see #KimKardashian. I've seen quite enough of her in the past decade, and her dramas and selfies are the stuff of nightmares, not peaceful dreams.” One user concluded, “Thank you. I've never understood the fascination with "stars" like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, folks who are famous for no apparent reason. Meanwhile, women with actual achievements are frequently ignored by the media.”
