Frank Ocean Mocks Kanye West, Praises Michelle Wolf On Tumblr
After responding to Kanye West‘s recent Twitter controversy with an image of him from his infamous “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” moment, Frank Ocean has once again taken to Tumblr to mock the Chicago rapper.
“I like the way Michelle Wolf thinks,” Ocean wrote on his Tumblr, the statement a reference to a recent tweet West made where he said he likes the way Conservative pundit Candace Owens thinks. Wolf, a comedian and former writer for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, recently served as the host for this year’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner. During her performance, she called out Donald Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders as well as spoke on how Flint is still without clean water.
Wolf’s set has been criticized as “bullying” but Ocean obviously doesn’t think that was the case. Neither does Dave Chappelle. The comedian spoke highly of Wolf during an appearance on PBS Newshour, saying that he “respects her [Wolf’s] gangsta” and that “she nailed it” in the performance.
“I don’t know who those people think they are that she can’t say that to them, ’cause they offend people all the time,” Chappelle said. “And I think that for many people … it’s cathartic to watch that woman speak truth to power like that.”
“I know how hard it is to do what she did, I think she nailed it,” Chappelle added. “Whether I agree with it or not, I gotta respect the artistry.”
