Vivica A. Fox Responds to Kanye West’s 2024 Campaign Video

Vivica A. Fox is speaking out after being included in a video tweeted by Kanye West that appears to serve as a presidential campaign ad.

The 58-year-old actress, who has been a vocal critic of the controversial rapper, he wrote on Twitter Last Friday that he doesn’t care about those who respect our black culture, after West, 45, brought it up in his since-deleted video announcement last week.

“Now I’m thinking if you want to use a clip of me, it should be fair! I wasn’t happy 5 you saying George Floyd wasn’t killed but THANK YOU 4 watching my show @foxsoultv #CocktailsWithQueens & I know 2 can play that game,” Fox wrote.

Fox was featured in a Ye 2024 campaign promotion, alongside other celebrities who have criticized West in the past. Clips from West’s interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson were also included in the ad.

Fox’s footage shows the actress on the FOXSOUL streaming show Cocktails with queenscriticizing West after he made false claims about the death of George Floyd.

“Yo, Kanye. F— you. And I mean that with everything in me,” Fox said in the video. “You have to cancel it. And I know we’re not trying to be in a cancellation culture, but now we have to hit him in the pockets. Because he obviously doesn’t care about African-American culture.”

The Independence day the star clarified her position in a later tweet, adding: ‘You don’t get it at all! I LOVE BLACK MEN! I just don’t care about those who respect our black culture, Kings & Queens!

The video West posted has since been deleted, though the rapper and designer posted other videos, including one displaying the “Ye 24” logo, a reference to a presidential race.

West also posted a video discussing how he had dinner last week with former President Donald Trump and far-right activist and white supremacist Nick Fuentes.

In that video – also since deleted, but captured by outlets including Rolling Stone – West said he suggested at dinner that Trump be his running mate in 2024.

Trump described the dinner somewhat differently, explaining on his Truth Social platform that he met with West because the rapper “was decimated in his business and basically everything else.”

A 2024 campaign would be West’s second presidential run.

In 2020, the artist launched his candidacy for president amid a tumultuous period in his personal life with then-wife Kim Kardashian and various episodes of erratic behavior. At his only campaign event, he divulged deeply personal details about his family.

In the end, he won about 60,000 votes in a dozen states.
