“Ive always said SNL uses black people to hold other black people back. My heart goes out to Issa Rae. I’m praying for her and her family,” he wrote.

“I know that the twenty years of service that I’ve paid in the entertainment field has furthered our ability to be more successful.”

On SNL, Kanye was mentioned during the “Your Vote Chicago” speech, when Issa’s character appeared on a morning talk show to say she’s voting for “everybody Black” – except Kanye.

“When we come back, we’ll talk about the presidential race between Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and Kanye West,” Kenan Thompson‘s anchor character said, to which she said: “Kanye? F him!”
