KIM Kardashian has been slammed for joking about R. Kelly's sexual assault scandal.
The reality star has bestie Amy Schumer to thank for convincing her to cut the controversial joke from her Saturday Night Live monologue.
In the most recent episode of the family's new reality show, the comedian helps the first-time host prepare her jokes, approving some and denying others.
Luckily, Amy, 40, had the comedic sense to say no to this one:
"I know I have privilege but I still struggle," Kim, 41, started the joke.
"Like most of the things that I wear, it’s really hard to pee. It’s like a whole ordeal.
"Let’s put it this way, if R. Kelly dressed like me, he may have stayed out of trouble."

The disgraced singer was found guilty of nine charges of sexual abuse in 2021, varying from bribery and kidnapping, to sexual trafficking across state lines – often with minors.
"No. Oh my god…," Amy replied at Kim's attempt at humor, looking for a way to dismiss the joke. "It’s too long. It’s a long way to go for (a joke)."
Online, fans were not laughing either.

"Sure Kim…If a pedophile dresses like you – they won't get into trouble," one person tweeted. "What sounds ignorant about that? A lot…"
Another shared: "Kim was going to make an R. Kelly joke on SNL? The fact she’s not a comedian makes it 10x annoying and insulting."
While a third came down hard on the star: "This woman is so f**king dumb. Sorry she should NOT be a lawyer based on the fact she has absolutely no real life experience or perspective.
"She's an insular, entitled, ignorant elitist."
MAKING THE CUT
The R. Kelly jab wasn't the only joke Amy helped Kim cut.
One other made cruel reference to her sister Khloe, 37, whose ex Tristan Thomspon had a history of cheating on her.
Kim read out the joke: “Oh Khloe, you have the biggest heart.
“It’s so big it has room for Tristan and all of his side pieces.”
“Oh s**t!” Amy replied with a shocked expression.
Tristan, 31, cheated on Khloe numerous times throughout their on-off relationship.
In December 2021, he admitted to fathering a child with Maralee Nichols while he and Khloe were still in an exclusive relationship.
FANS GO OFF
Once again, fans were not impressed with her comedy style.
Taking to Twitter, one angry fan wrote: "Kim would really joke like that about her own sisters trauma?? A new low."
"I laughed but that joke about Tristan's side-pieces was next level messed up lmaooo," another viewer wrote on Instagram.
"Not a fan of Kim's Tristan joke. Khloe deserves better from her flesh and blood that was cruel and I'm glad she cut it out smh," a third critic fired off.
‘THAT'S NOT A JOKE’
Another scrapped SNL joke saw Kim make a dig at her mom.
“Kris… Kris, you’re not one of my sisters. That’s not a joke, I just thought I’d remind you.”
Amy, who has hosted the legendary late-night show twice, replied with a stern “no."

Viewers learned that Amy’s frosty reception to some of Kim’s jokes left the KUWTK-alum with doubts about her ability to perform a good monologue.
In a confessional, she revealed: “The one thing I thought I had, and was so confident in, is my monologue, so I’m a little confused now.”
