Ocean picks a side on Tumblr.
Wolf, a soon-to-be Netflix late-night host, was tasked with roasting the attendees at the annual Washington media gala and caught a lot of backlash in the hours following her 20-minute set. In particular, people seemed to take offense at jokes Wolf made about Sarah Huckabee Sanders‘ “perfect smoky eye”—a common beauty term for a look that uses eyeliner and shadow in brown, grey, and black hues. Sunday night, Association President Margaret Talev controversially apologized for Wolf’s set, writing that it “was not in the spirit of” the group’s mission of “honoring civility. ”
Speaking to NPR’s Terry Gross Tuesday, 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,” and it appears she has an ally in singer Frank Ocean.
In a Tumblr post this week, Ocean wrote simply, “I LOVE THE WAY MICHELLE WOLF THINKS. 😄”
Earlier in the week, Ocean shared a still of West and Mike Myers from the controversial “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people,” moment during the 2005 Hurricane Katrina relief telethon, so it’s safe to say that celebrities’ roles in televised political moments are on the pop star’s mind at the moment:
