Ocean gave a shout-out to the Republican party's least favourite comedian.
Frank Ocean has given comedian Michelle Wolf a shout-out after her brilliant and unrestrained set at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
The singer posted on Tumblr: “I LIKE THE WAY MICHELLE WOLF THINKS. 😄”. Frank Ocean voiced support of Wolf who, during her 20 minute remarks, called out Trump and the Republican Party for their flagrant lies. The post also acts as a dig at Kanye West.
The format of the remark mocks a tweet Kanye posted where he shouted out controversial conservative commentator Candace Owens, writing: “I love the way Candace Owens thinks”.
This tweet was met with fierce backlash. Many hit back at the musician, with one fan replying: “Hugely disappointing. You can do so much better.” Another said: “So, by becoming Republican all of the social issues plaguing me and my community will magically go away?”
Michelle Wolf has been in the headlines recently for her controversial jokes at the WHCD where she lambasted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders inciting outrage from the right-wing media. In an interview with NPR, Wolf said: “I wouldn’t change a single word that I said. I’m very happy with what I said, and I’m glad I stuck to my guns”.
