Days after Kanye West showed up unannounced to the head office for shoe brand Skechers, Cecily Strong made her bold return to ‘SNL’ with a hilarious spoof.
Cecily Strong took on the role of Skechers CEO in a hilarious Saturday Night Life spoof on Kanye “Ye” West making an appearance at their real-life California headquarters. The drop-in visit took place just days after Ye was dropped by German-based Adidas, who produces his popular Yeezy line, following his highly offensive anti-semitic comments that got him suspended from Twitter and restricted on Instagram. In the SNL take of events, Cecily doubled down on Skechers’ positioning about showing Kanye the door.
“Like the rest of the country, we were appalled by Kanye’s horrific comments and we vow to never work with him in any capacity,” Cecily, wearing a red blazer while standing in a Skechers store, then said. “But, can we also point out that of all the companies he could have approached and been rejected by, he chose Skechers,” she added as the piano music. Chloe Fineman then retorted, “Kanye came to Skechers and Skechers said no. Do you realize how satisfying that is?”
“Two years ago could you imagine that headline — Skechers is too good for Kanye,” Bowen then laughed. “Of course, he’s always been a disrupter in the fashion industry. Again, we would never partner with him. What would you even call a Kanye Skechers shoe anyway? The Skeezy?” he pondered, pointing out another show company that has yet to comment on the controversy. “I haven’t heard anything from Crocs. No saying they’re anti-semitic but we haven’t heard from them.”
