Spike Lee took to Instagram to tear into Omarosa Manigault after the news broke that she had agreed to the position of director of Donald Trump’s outreach for black voters.
“Ms. Theresa “Omarosa” Manigault ‘Pic Is Like This Cuz I’m Looking At Her SIDEWAYS,” Lee wrote in the caption of a picture of Omarosa wearing a clown nose. “Trump Has Named Her As His “Director Of African-American Outreach. You Might Know Her From Trump’s RealityTV Show The Apprentice. #Who’s Next? Step N’ Fetchit? Aunt Jemina? Uncle Ben? Sleep N’ Eat? Rastus? Lil’ N—r Jim? Omarosa Gonna Give Out Free Popeye’s Chicken With Sides To Deliver Da Black Vote To Trump? YA-DIG? SHO-NUFF.”
But Omarosa shot back saying that the famous director had gone too far in making reference to her mother, who is named Theresa.
“You attack me I can deal with!” she wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “You attack my mom NOT cool!! How does this help our community? You attack my mom?? Wow! #newLow! Your using the N word and terms that are divide our community?? For a cheap shot at me and my mom?? NOT Cool!!”
