Washington: Merely a week after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took their romance public, the comics at ‘Saturday Night Live’ questioned its validity in one of their sketches.

The April 14 episode, hosted by Josh Brolin, featured Nasim Pedrad (as Kardashian) and Jay Pharaoh (as West) weighing in on the Trayvon Martin case during an appearance on CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’.

Pedrad’s Kardashian was shocked that it took Florida officials so long to arrest George Zimmerman and charge him with second degree murder.

“Forty-six days! That’s like half a marriage!” Us magazine quoted her as whining.

After the comics poked fun at her past relationships, Taran Killam (as Morgan) asked “Is your relationship for real, or is it just another publicity stunt?”

“I love this woman,” Pharoah’s West said.

“As I said earlier this week, she’s my Beyonce.

“Only without the singing, or the dancing or the acting. I’m a zero-threat!” West added.
