Those who cant take a joke probably shouldnt try to crack one.
Ansaris joke went like this:
Im sure theres some people that have different political priorities. Im sure theres some people that voted for him with reservations. Im sure theres a lot of people that voted for Trump the same way a lot of people listen to the music of Chris Brown.
Its like, Hey man, Im just here for the tunes. I dont know about that other stuff. I just like the dancing and the music. I dont condone the extracurriculars.
If you think about it, Donald Trump is basically the Chris Brown of politics. And Make America Great Again is his These hoes aint loyal.
Brown was not happy to be compared with a man associated with racist rhetoric so he lashed on Instagram in a racist manner.
Underneath a brief clip, Brown wrote, FUCK NO!!!!!! Somebody tell ALADDIN HOP OFF MY DICK! with a tears from laughing emoji.
Browns attempt at humor is not only problematic but inaccurate,because the fictional character of Aladdin is Middle Eastern, while Ansari is of Indian descent.Plus, attempting to get back at a comedian who jokingly compared you to Trump by making a racist statement is not the best way to set yourself apart, a fact noted by the Twittersphere.
The backlash didnt stop Brown from going after Ansari in another Instagram post.
In this one, he said, Cant fuckin catch a break. This n***a said Donald Trump is the Chris Brown of politics. I swear Im moving. Getting the fuck out of here. Dont fucking trust what you see! Even salt looks like sugar.
So far, Ansari hasnt publicly reacted to Browns reaction, but HuffPost has reached out to him for a response and will update this post accordingly.
CORRECTION:This post has been clarified to reflect that Ansari is Indian-American.
