Aziz Ansari hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time ever this past weekend and used his entire opening monologue to make light of the current political landscape. Maybe the most memorable part of the bit was Aziz’s parallel between Trump fans and Chris Brown fans.
“I’m sure there’s 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’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.’
“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.’”
The ‘extracurriculars’ Aziz is referring to is that time back in 2009 when Chris Brown put Rihanna in the hospital, brawling in an NYC nightclub in 2012, punching Frank Ocean over a parking space in 2013, a hit-and-run incident in the same year, a felony assault, Ok, I really didn’t expect it to be this long. I give up.
Regardless, Chris Brown took to Instagram to call out Aziz for blasting him in front of millions, by calling him “Aladdin.”
People allegedly had more faith in Chris Brown to respond kindly instead of an overtly racist remark. Silly people.
Brown appeared in another video where he claimed he “can’t catch a break.” Dude, you should be in jail but instead you’re a millionaire who could bang any girl in the Women’s March. You transcend irony. You’re doing far better than you should. Take a fucking lap.
