In what could be described as one of the most painfully awkward moments from the 2019 Emmy awards, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner became the butts of a very brutal joke— which they apparently had no idea was meant to be delivered sarcastically!
Taking to the stage to present the award for the most outstanding reality TV series, some of Hollywood's biggest names couldn't contain their laughter when Kim seriously stated: "Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves." The giggles reached fever pitch after Kendall inferred her family's reality series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, was also "unfiltered and unscripted".
While the audience thought the half-sisters were being facetious, it turns out they were not briefed on their teleprompter script before the show, meaning they had no idea they were supposed to deliver the line as a joke!
While the pair reportedly said "it was definitely a bit awkward", Us Weekly claimed this morning that "Kim and Kendall were good sports about it" and casually brushed off the backlash like they always do so well!
Twitter, on the other hand, could not let it go!
I dare you to relive the uncomfortable moment one more time... You can watch it below!
The platform was rife with some of the most hilarious memes we've seen to date. Take a look at the best and most iconic reactions below!
Their awkward appearance at the awards show comes days after Kim and Kendall were at each other's throats. Last week, Kendall appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she revealed she wasn't a huge fan of the name her half-sister had picked out for their newborn baby boy, Psalm.
"Kim made me come to her house and help her pick a name," the 23-year-old explained at the time. "And it was this whole thing. She would not let me leave the house until we figured out a name and then ended up going with a name that I didn't even — like, that I didn't care for as much. I think they were all really beautiful, but I was kind of rooting for another name."
Naturally, the interview struck a nerve with the mum-of-four, later revealing what she really thought of her sister's subtle diss.
"So I saw this interview that Kendall did on Fallon, and I was like, 'Excuse me! First of all, say it to me first; don’t say it on TV," the mum-of-four began. "No, but I, there’s like a grace period of when you have to name your child before you have to go into the government offices and do the paperwork. Ten days, you got 10 days before you have to name your child or they are named John Doe.
The makeup mogul continued: "We had like an hour. I woke up in the morning and Kanye was really busy working, but I knew our list. So I called my sisters and Kendall was available, so I said 'Come over now, you're not leaving the house until we've got the name.'"
Her theory is not that Kendall didn't like the name but that she's salty Kim didn't go with her suggestion.
"Kylie and I were vibing on the same name," Kim said. "I have this big hallway and we were screaming out every name, like: 'Psalm! Get over here!' Kylie and I were vibing on the name, but I think Kendall was more mad that her choice wasn't first, and that's why she was hating on Fallon.
