Before you go revoking Anthony Mackie’s Black card, the actor wants you to know he is not a Donald Trump supporter. Monday afternoon after his interview with BET angered fans and caused Black Twitter to go off, Mackie tweeted:

Sorry Donald, that wasn’t an endorsement. Just a bad attempt at a joke, I guess?

During the interview for his new film Our Brand is Crisis, Mackie was asked if he would rather run Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump’s campaign, and he said Trump without a doubt. “I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign. 100 percent. I mean, first that’ll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump’s an easy sell.”

Mackie, who plays a campaign manager in the film opposite Sandra Bullock, also went on to say he felt like Trump “worked his way up from nothing.” But, Mackie had a whole other response about the Presidential candidates, particularly the Republicans when we talked to him during the same press junket. 

HipHollywood asked Mackie if he was optimistic about this crop of candidates and he told us: “The Republican Party is just a mess, I mean, I don’t think they even have humans running, they are about to throw a cow in the race. The Democratic Party, which I am proud to say, in their debate they talked abut more than the Republican party talked about in their first two debates. So I think there is a definite push from the Democrats for answers, but I think there is a dumbing down of American politics on the Republican side that’s going to come to a ferocious head.”

So who would Mackie vote for? The 37 year old actor told us it would be … wait for it, Kanye West. Check out the video for his full quote.

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
