*Jamie Foxx is not amused with Kanye West entering the 2020 presidential race. 

Over the weekend, the rapper announced that he’s running for the President of the United States. Several celebrities responded, with Elon Musk noting his support of Ye’s White House goals, while Tiffany Haddish trolled West by announcing that she, too, is entering the presidential race (with Dave Chappelle as her running mate). 

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” Yeezy tweeted on the 4th of July holiday. “I am running for president of the United States!”

On Monday, Stephen Jackson slammed Kanye’s political move by retweeting a post from DJ Hed, in which he warns Americans not to vote for celebrities who’ve neve held public office, per Complex

“Kanye Trump. Fool u once shame on them fool u twice u and 2x fool,” Jackson wrote. “#justiceforgeorgefloyd #justiceforbreonnataylor and so many more. #ivehadenough of the clown sh*t.”

Foxx, who teamed with Kanye on the Grammy award-winning record “Gold Digger,” co-signed Jackson in the comments section, writing, “Gottdamn right!!! Ain’t got time for the bullsh*t!!!,” he wrote, Complex reports

Foxx and Jackson have been working together to advocate for social justice in wake of the police killing of George Floyd.

Matt Barnes has also chimed in on Kanye’s presidential bid, calling out the hip-hop superstar for playing a “dangerous game” by jumping into politics. 

“This is a dangerous game he’s playing. If this is serious, he will definitely divide the minority vote,” Barnes wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “Just remember comments like “slavery was a choice” and how buddy buddy he is w trump! Much respect for the artist & his impact on fashion but this is a ?HUGE FUCK NO 4 PRESIDENT‼️”

“We know who I’m voting on. And I’m not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over,” he said. “Because guess what: I’m still here! Jesus Is King was No. 1! I was told my career would end if I wasn’t with her (Hillary Clinton). What kind of campaign is that, anyway? That’s like if Obama’s campaign was ‘I’m with black.’ What’s the point of being a celebrity if you can’t have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion! You know?”
