Issa Rae called out Kanye West’s shenanigans while hosting the CFDA Awards on Monday, June 4, and ol' boy's wife was in the audience. Rae, decked out in a fabulous green suit, used the rapper's outlandish comments about slavery to poke fun at her fashion sense, reports USA Today.
“I’m about as fashionable as Kanye is black. Only when it’s convenient," she said. "That joke was my choice, just like slavery.”
Yeezy wasn’t in the building, but wife Kim Kardashian West was present because she would receive an award later in the evening. The Insecure creator also cracked on her being the first person of color to host the fashion awards ceremony.
"I’m the first person of color to ever host this so I really can’t (expletive) up, which is crazy especially considering the impact our culture has had on fashion," she said.
She then joked about the price tag of nominee Virgil Abloh’s clothing line, Off-White. "A man making clothes too expensive for everyone regardless of race," she cracked. "That is the future liberals want."
