Michael Rapaport is real comfortable talking about black folks and giving his unfiltered opinion on topics such as taking a knee on 911 (against), Janet Jackson (against), making jokes at Chris Brown’s expense (also against) and all things Hip Hop (he’s an expert). He’s also apparently a big fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen alongside Kenya Moore where he gleefully joked about her ashy feet (“you could cut glass with them shits”) during the after show.
The episode was heated enough to get Andy rocking back and forth in his chair to stimulate his ratings boner. After Kenya called Michael “a middle aged fat white guy” he came back at Kenya, talking about her glam squad needing blow torches and buzz saws to get her camera ready. Apparently Michael doesn’t own a mirror. Here’s the clip.
Both Kenya and Michael seemed to be having a good time with their “feud,” but when he took his jokes to an Instagram Story with a picture of her next to a picture of an ape, the record scratched.
A RHOA fan page caught his IG story and posted it.
I’m guessing a lot of invitations Michael may have had to the cook-out in the past have been canceled. No matter what his intention was, comparing a black woman to a primate is never going to go over well, no matter how many habitual “be”s you have dropped in your lifetime.
As far as I can tell, Michael hasn’t responded to being called out on his real questionable actions with that ape picture but his most recently IG post today was this.
So this is either supposed to be some form of shade directed at Kenya or Michael’s doubled down on his adoration of Chris Brown and went ahead and bought himself a monkey too.
