Purple Shade: Prince's Epic Kardashian Diss Will Have You ROTFL

Purple Shade: Prince's Epic Kardashian Diss Will Have You ROTFL

New Girl's Zooey Deschanel shares the hilarious story.

Published May 11th

We knew from his infamous 2011 concert, when he kicked Kim Kardashian off the stage, that Prince was no fan of the reality TV star and her family. We also know he was the king of shade. Put those two things together, and you start to get an idea of what happened on the set of New Girl in 2014, when Prince was a guest star on the hit sitcom.

According to New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, Prince disliked the Kardashians so much, he refused to even let them be featured extras in his scene on the show — after they had already shown up on set to shoot.

In the episode, Zooey's character Jess and her crew are invited to a party at the Purple One's house.

"Someone was friends with some of the Kardashians and had made a phone call and they had kindly come on to shoot a kind of cameo part," Deschanel told Conan O'Brien on Monday. "It turns out that someone from Prince's camp said 'Who are the celebrities? I hope it's not a Kardashian.'"

The rock icon was so adamant about not having any Kardashians appear on the episode that he even demanded a makeshift in-house bonfire, where production assistants burned the reality stars' portion of the scripts. "I felt so bad," Deschanel said. "Because obviously everyone had gone out of their way to be there on that day, but Prince was running the show."

Prince's legacy lives on in so many ways since his passing, but this has to be one of the best anecdotes we've heard about the Purple One yet. See what else he left behind with BET Breaks above.
