Funnyman Aziz Ansari hosted Saturday Night Live one day after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. The Masters of None star and creator praised the thousands of woman who marched around the nation in protest of Trump, and was tickled at the notion the leader of the free world was probably “watching a brown guy make fun of him.”
However, the 33-year-old comic may have made an enemy out of Chris Brown when he took a few jabs at the Royalty singer during his opening monologue. “I’m sure a lot of people voted for Trump the same way a lot of people listen to the music of Chris Brown. Where it’s like ‘Hey man, I’m just here for the tunes. I don’t know about that other stuff. I just like the dancing and the music. I don’t condone the extracurriculars.’ “
Ansari then compared Trump’s famous slogan to one of Brown’s more popular songs. “If you think about it, Donald Trump is basically the Chris Brown of politics and “Make America Great Again” is his these hoes ain’t loyal.”
Brown–who should be training with Mike Tyson for his match in the ring with Soulja Boy–got wind of Ansari’s jokes and took to Instagram to offer a light-hearted rebuttal…well light-hearted compared to the things he’s known for saying in the past.
It doesn’t seem like Breezy is taking Ansari’s comments seriously. Brown later added one more gut punch for the road. F**k no. Somebody tell Aladdin to get off my d**k”
