Kim Kardashian will be hosting an upcoming episode of SNL, and Will & Grace actress Debra Messing doesn't understand why.

"Why Kim Kardashian?" the actress tweeted alongside an article of the announcement. "I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch. Am I missing something?"

Fans agreed with Messing in the comments:

"Cultural icon? Hmmmm, I think the way she got famous has nothing to do with being an icon," one fan wrote, alluding to her sex tape.

Another wrote: "I don't see it. Kim is a sweety, but she's not a talent. She can't sing, dance, act and frankly it's a no for me. Put her on a fashion judging panel and I'm in, but not this."

Owen Wilson, Rami Malek and Jason Sudeikiswill all be hosting, with Kacey Musgraves, Young Thug and Brandi Carlile performing.
