Kanye West responds to Issa Rae’s “SNL” line

The “Insecure” actress played a lawyer for the NAACP appearing on Kenan Thompson’s rigged morning talk show, “Your Voice Chicago,” about the upcoming presidential election.

In the early moments of the skit, Rae said she would “vote for all blacks” – a play on her viral commentary at the 2017 Emmy Awards in which she “cheered for all blacks”.

Seconds before the skit ended, Rae quickly got the last word by responding to Thompson’s mention of Kanye West with “Kanye? F him!” along with a glance.

West responded to tweeting, “I’ve always said that SNL uses people of color to hold other people of color. My heart goes out to Issa Rae, I’m praying for her and her family.”

He continued: “I know that the 20 years of service I have paid for in the entertainment business have strengthened our ability to be more successful.”

West accompanied his tweet with a screenshot of Issa Rae’s Google search results, in Spanish.

The rapper and father of four announced he would be running for president on July 4, has since campaigned on Twitter and encouraged voters to write in his name on ballots where he doesn’t already appear.
