    Amy Schumer Seemingly Called Kanye West A "Nazi" In Her "Saturday Night Live" Monologue

    Amy's comment came in the middle of an anecdote about her husband's autism spectrum disorder diagnosis.

    Last night, Amy Schumer hosted Saturday Night Live for the third time.

    Amy made a reference to the upcoming midterm elections, jokingly calling them the "midterm abortions" before saying, “Sorry, I was thinking about what’s at stake if we don’t vote. People love giving pregnant women advice, don’t they?"

    Amy also talked about how her husband has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, which used to be referred to as Asperger's Syndrome until the name was changed due to Dr. Hans Asperger's ties to the Nazi party in Germany.

    After mentioning that fact, Amy not-so-subtly said "Kanye," before receiving laughs and applause from the audience.

    The reference, obviously, alluded to Kanye's recent anti-Semitic comments as well as the subsequent fallout.

    We'll see if Kanye responds to Amy's dig — although, honestly, let's hope he doesn't. The world could use a few less opinions from him right now, for a long time.
