Monday night, Issa Rae hosted the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. During her the Awards she gave a monologue that took a pretty hard aim at Kanye West.
"I'm about as fashionable as Kanye is black - only when it's convenient," she said. "That joke was my choice, just like slavery."
Now Kanye wasn't there to to hear the joke, but his wife Kim Kardashian West definitely was. Because she received the inaugural Influence Award.
