KIM Kardashian and Kendall Jenner Emmys script, which saw them laughed off stage, was a joke inserted by the script writers.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars have insisted they were “not briefed” by producers before they took to the stage at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to present the Competition Programme award on Sunday.
The pair were baffled when the audience roared with laughter as they insisted they were “real people” and their E! show was “unfiltered and unscripted”.
They said: “Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves.”
Before Kendall could even say her bit, an audible laugh could be heard around the auditorium.
The 23-year-old said as the laughter continued: “Telling their stories, unfiltered and unscripted.”
But the pair insisted they were not given the heads up the comment was meant to be tongue in cheek.
Although the moment was “awkward” for viewers, the duo have insisted they were not fazed by the giggles.
A source told Us Weekly: “It was definitely a bit awkward.”
They added: “[Kim and Kendall] weren’t bothered by people laughing.”
Despite the reaction Kendall and Kim carried on and presented the award to RuPaul for his show, RuPaul’s Drag Race.
But viewers couldn’t believe the moment, and they took to social media to share their reaction on the unforgettable moment.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “The crowd’s reaction to Kim Kardashian saying reality shows were just “real people living their lives unscripted” could not have been more perfect. #unscriptedlaughter #emmys.”
Another added: “How about the whole audience just cackling at the idea of the Kardashians being real… even Kim knew it was funny #Emmys.”
A third clocked the awkward moment, writing: “Eeeek. There was a very loud laugh from the audience when Kim Kardashian was presenting. Laughing at her; not with her. It was uncomfortable (and, in my opinion, uncalled for) in the room. #Emmys.”
Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired in 2007 on E! and is currently on its 17th series.
