Aisha Tyler calls Kanye West 'the straight, black Liberace'

Posted on

Everybody has something to say about Kanye West. And Aisha Tyler has something very specific to say.

Tyler, who currently co-hosts The Talk on CBS and voices Lana Kane on Archer, dropped by The Late Late Show Wednesday night to chat with Craig Ferguson about a number of topics, including that rarely covered reality TV clan, the Kardashians. The family now includes Kanye West, who Tyler used to count as a talented pal before he abandoned all that in favor of being “the straight, black Liberace.”

If West’s past response to late-night ribbing is anything to go by, Tyler might want to watch her back (and her Twitter).
