Michael Rapaport Rips Aziz Ansari For Sounding White Then Has Twitter Meltdown – GeekMundo

via We Got This Covered

Whatever Aziz Ansari (NBC’s Parks and Recreation) has going on with his Netflix original series Master of None must have made Michael Rapaport (Justified) feel a certain type of way because last night he decided to go in on Ansari on Twitter.  The weird thing is that the rant wasn’t anything that was worth it.  It’s not about Ansari being mean to him at an event, or talking about him because that would make some sort of sense.  No, Rapaport is displeased because Ansari sounds “white”, ladies and gentlemen.  Unfortunately for Rapaport, not everyone was alseep on Twitter and they quickly went in on him for his tirade.  What ensued was a mini meltdown featuring veiled invitations to a confrontation in person, and Rapaport’s son Julian getting in on the action.

Aziz talking about “whiteness on late night TV” yet Aziz sounds whiter than the whitest white guy,like Richard Pryor doing a white guy in 79

So Much Political Correctness So Little Time for all of the Hipster Tattooed Bearded Skinny Jean Rushmore watching WuTang listening Elite — MichaelRapaport (@MichaelRapaport) November 12, 2015

the title “White Men Cant Jump” would be considered offensive in 2015 by the Hipster Tattooed Bearded Elite of today.

Rapaport’s ire seems to have been directed at writer Ezekiel Kweku and writer Jon Bois mainly, but he did go in on a few others. The responses were priceless:

.@MichaelRapaport is this an example of the incredible wit that you think is being unfairly rewarded? I rest my case. — a shrill of hope (@theshrillest) November 12, 2015

a man desperately trying to stay relevant by being a white guy adjacent to blackness posted a pic of himself with a black guy as defense.
