Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner just rolled up to the 2019 Emmys to present the award for Outstanding Reality TV, and the entire audience, um…laughed at them? The moment in question went down when Kim said, “Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves.”
Kendall then mused, “Telling their stories unfiltered and unscripted,” while the audience erupted in laughter and they both looked upset.
And nope, the moment didn’t escape people on Twitter.

Here’s the thing: while Keeping Up with the Kardashians is an absolute legend in the reality television genre, it’s not exactly “unfiltered and unscripted.” The Kardashians have been accused time and time again of faking entire plot lines for ratings—most recently the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson/Khloe Kardashian cheating scandal, which plenty of people think was a giant PR stunt courtesy of Kris Jenner. (Note: both the Kardashians and Jordyn deny this—and considering Jordyn and her former best friend Kylie Jenner no longer hang out, it seems pretty real).
As far as “unscripted” goes, the Kardashians don’t script their lines (maybe…hopefully…as far as we know)—but either way, isn’t it kind of mean of people to laugh at Kim and Kendall on live TV?!
