Earlier this week, Jimmy Kimmel presented a special edition of his "Mean Tweets" segment, featuring an array of hip-hop, pop and country artists. The playful clip concluded with 2 Chainz reading aloud a Tweet that compared him to another famous dreadlocked superstar. "2 Chainz looks like Whoopi Goldberg.... #Truuuuu," he read dissapointed.
Whoopi must have caught wind of the joke and decided to respond via Twitter Friday (Oct. 11) morning. The View Host poked fun at the remark with a humorous response, tweeting: "Is it me or does 2 chains look like he could be my son if I had one?" She also expressed that she is cool with the comparison, acknowledging 2 Chainz's intelligence and work ethic. Whoopi has only one child, a daughter named Alexandre.
Is it me or does 2 chains look like he could be my son if I had one? He's smart & he's about something so I'm cool with the comparison
