We love Amy Schumer because she doesn’t shy away from any topic. Birth control? Check. Body Image? Check. Kardashians? Check.

So it wasn’t surprising that her monologue on Saturday Night Live was filled with mentions of all three, with a little extra focus on Khloé Kardashian's weight loss.

Schumer started by talking about how there needs to be better role models for young girls, because “who do they have? All they have, literally, is the Kardashians."

"Is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women who take the faces they were born with as like, a light suggestion?" she said. "We used to have Khloé. Khloé was ours, right? Whenever there's a group of women, you identify with one of them, right? … But then Khloé—she lost half her body weight. Like Khloé, she lost a Kendall, and we have nothing."

Khloé revealed back in July that she lost around 35 pounds (which is admittedly, less than a Kendall), thanks to an intense workout regime with celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson.

And Khloé wasn’t going to let Schumer’s comments slide—she worked hard for her new physique, after all. About 14 hours after Schumer took the stage at Studio 8H, Khloé appeared to subtweet a response to Schumer, without naming her directly.

Then came a second tweet, two minutes later:

So Schumer decided to subtweet her back, with a photo of her adorable baby niece, who was mentioned in the monologue as a girl Schumer hopes to inspire.
