Across the internet, Kanye West has earned a new name, and it’s not Christian Genius Billionaire.

Someone had got jokes, and put West’s face wearing a MAGA hat, in the place of Uncle Ruckus. Uncle Ruckus is the ornery, Uncle Tom-ish character from hit animation, The Boondocks.

Earlier Monday morning, if you googled “Boondocks characters,” you’d see in the search result a picture of a confused looking West, CNN reports.

Now it looks like a correction has been made, after people got their farts and giggles from it.

Uncle Ruckus is described as “internally racist, repeatedly proclaiming his love for the white race, and he even identifies as Caucasian, saying he suffers from ‘reverse vitiligo.’”

West was likely pictured because of his affection for Donald Trump, the current President of the United States who has played nice with many white supremacist groups. Unlike any other president in modern day history, also often gets his supporters riled up at rallies with hateful speech. So, the support of the POTUS by the rapper has been met with all types push back from the Black community.

How is he similar to Uncle Ruckus?

The Uncle Ruckus character, which is voiced by Gary Anthony Williams, has made many questionable statements much like West’s “Slavery was a choice,” misguided comment.

For instance, in one particular episode, he said, “The key to happiness is to eliminate all black women from your life.”

He has also said, “I start each day by thanking the white man for the sunrise, for the land I walk on, for the air I breathe.”

People pretty much think West is the embodiment of the racist Uncle Ruckus.

As reported by, West has said Black people are brainwashed by Democrats and has frowned upon putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. West also criticized Obama in the past for not doing more to reduce the murder rate in his hometown of Chicago.

West seems to stay embroiled in some type of controversy over his problematic comments.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah called out the rapper’s recent criticism of Hip-Hop culture and pointed out some glaring hypocrisies in his stance during an interview with radio show host Big Boy.

Noah seemed flabbergasted when West called out rap culture, saying it focuses on “f***ing somebody else’s bitch,” buying luxury foreign-made cars and waxing poetic “about things that can get you locked up.”

“I was watching that, and I was like, are you sh**ting me?” Noah responded to what he believes is a glaring oversimplification. “Like, of all people. I’m not saying everything he’s saying is wrong, but you are gonna say it? You, as Kanye West, are gonna talk s**t about other rappers talking about buying ‘foreign?’”

“You, as Kanye West? ’I know Spike Lee’s gonna kill me, but let me finish, I’d rather buy 80 gold chains and go ign’ant,” Noah continued citing some of West’s most infamous lyrics.

“That Kanye West? Like, are you serious? ‘You’re such a f***ing ho, I love it?’ That Kanye West is gonna talk s**t about rappers f***ing bitches?’”

West attributes his newfound attitude to his conversion to the Christian faith.
