Kanye West offended by Jay Pharoah – Speaks To Him About His Comments

September 3, 2014 Kanye West, Jay Pharoah

Kanye West doesn’t take jokes standing down. Especially when the jokes are about his marriage.

Jay Pharoah impersonated the rapper at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, and while Mrs. Kanye West politely smiled at the impersonation, her husband was not going to take it.

During an improv speech at the Made In America festival, the rapper revealed that he spoke to the comedian about his remarks.

"They want to make a joke out of how hard we work," North West’s papa said.

"It's all fine and all funny and everything, but don't distract from our vision. It's not a joke what we do up here. This music that we do is not a joke. What we do culturally is not a joke."

Kanye continued, "I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV VMA Awards. I said, 'I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story. Let me tell you about what I went through to get to that position.' So we ain'tgonna have no black comedians going up stage spoofing people that's working hard to open doors not only for black people, but any creators, anybody that wants to add a contribution to the world."

The rapper ended his speech on a high note by saying, "When I leave tonight, I want y'all to leave with love."
