Last week, Kanye West released a video announcing his 2024 campaign for president of the United States. The video included a clip of actor Vivica A. Fox, and she let Ye know how she really felt about it on Twitter.
On Friday, November 25, she replied to his video with a message that included a plug for her show, Cocktails with Queens.

“Now dawling if u gonna use a clip featuring me it should be accurate! ” Fox wrote. “I was not happy with you 4 saying George Floyd wasn’t murdered, but hey THANKS 4 watching my @foxsoultv show #CocktailsWithQueens & know 2 Can Play That Game!”
West’s campaign video focused on religion and included shots of nature and people praying. “By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people, God intends us to be,” he says. The video also included a clip of Fox criticizing West on an episode of her show after he erroneously claimed that George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose, not police brutality.
“Yo, Kanye. Eff you. And I mean that with everything inside of me,” she says in the clip. “You got to cancel him. And I know we not trying to be in a cancel culture but we got to hit him in his pockets now. Because he obviously doesn’t care about the African-American culture.”
In October, Fox told Entertainment Tonight, “Kanye, if I can say this to you, my brother—if you need help, don’t be afraid to go get it,” Vivica A. Fox said. “Please do, because it’s just—don’t ruin your legacy like this. You have four beautiful children that don’t need to see Daddy’s legacy absolutely destroyed like that.”
West has since deleted the campaign video from his Twitter account.
