André Leon Tally Bashes The Obamas Over Star Studded Birthday Celebration


Last week former President Barack Obama was forced to cut his 60th birthday party guest list from 600 to 400 after being called out for ignoring COVID19 protocols [click here if you missed that]. 

Fashionista André Leon Talley calls out the Obamas for their insensitive decision to go forward with their party anyway...

Talley tells The NY Times  
“I think the nouveaux riches Obamas are seriously tone-deaf. We all love Beyoncé. But people have so many things to worry about with Covid, voting rights, climate warming. People are afraid of being evicted from their homes. And the Obamas are in Marie-Antoinette, tacky, let-them-eat-cake mode. They need to remember their humble roots.”

He needs to quit the antics and just wear a sign on his head that says “Coon Available.” After he got dumped by Anna, and kicked out of his friends mansion that he thought he paid a million dollars for (how does one not know?). He’s looking for a fabulous and wealthy, white conservative couple to adopt him since his reputation is done with the fabulous and wealthy, white New York elites.

Talley is just mad that his morbidly obese ass wasn't invited. When he was at the top of the fashion industry he treated people like shit but once Anna Wintour dropped him he started pretending to be socially conscious. Nobody even cared about the tell all book he wrote. Go back to squatting in that house you've been renting for 40 years and still don't own.

Andre Leon's right. The new rich (off the backs of the American people) don't know how to act! Yep, you can bring a horse to water but you can't make him drink it

^ you sound stupid. I agree with the other posts. If he was invited he would be sitting front row with his tent on and fan flaming.
Is he living on the street yet. Yts cant be trusted and he found out the hard way.
I will give him credit for advocating for more black models.

Sounds like Andre is hating from outside the club. Like 7.51 & 9.49 said, just pressed that he wasn't invited lol.

Andre Leon Tally is absolutely right and that party should have waited! Barack & Michelle are quick to jump up on their soapboxes and try to tell people how to behave but they're full of shit. People are dropping like flies due to covid, losing their jobs and dealing with these rabid Trump Qanon freaks but they wanted to plan a covid party during a pandemic. Priorities are all fucked up. Make it make sense.

They didn't have seats strong enough for him to sit in and they didn't want to order 200 more plates for him to eat.

Andre is 100% right. However, he's a fool for thinking the elites were true friends. There's no such thing as true friendship in fashion, entertainment, and politics. If you make a good friend in those industries, you doing a gem. It's already hard to trust people in the real world so why do you expect it in the corporate and fashion realm where all people care about is money, their looks, and their fake power?

It's sad seeing Andre go out like this when he could be retired somewhere living comfortably and enjoying family. It's so scary how many of our Black elders are suffering due to poor financial decisions or just struggle due to getting the short end of the stick because of their color. Andre should've never disowned his people.

If this coontastic,kaftan/tent wearing, let yt pimp his ass, out all his money, seeking their validation, till in his old age, the nigga don't even own a home, and have not a gawddamn thing to show for all his years in the "fashun" industry. Don't keep the Obama's name out his dusty ass mouth. Bitch you can't come for nobody, when you a whole ass coon used as a footstool in that frivolous ass industry, when you should have been a fucking king. His fat ass must have not gotten an invite, and feeling extra salty and wanna come with some ole covid activism, nigga sit yo ass all the way down.

When did this broke-ass ninja crawl out from Anna Wintours ass? To make this statement? If he *had* been invited, he would have been the first one at the door. Doesn't he have a house to squat in?

I wasn't trying to make you laugh. Just making a statement. Do you have one besides trolling my comments?

I am not usually a fan of your gibberish but this comment is dead on.

I don't give a damn about Andre or the Obamas. I just don't get how Andre can spend all that time around big industry money and wind up in such poor financial condition. Carry on.

Cause it's an industry of frauds. Andre broke the mold when he exposed that the fashion industry isn't as "wealthy" as the facade they perpetuate. Models aren't paid, just given designer duds to sell on ebay. Editors aren't paid either - which is about 20yrs ago they started using nepotism hires instead of actual fashion journalist because the hires came from the children of the wealthy elite. As a result, everyone operates off of "industry credit" and the barter system. Just old money recirculating old money.

As for the story, yeah, I agree with everyone else - folks hating from outside the club they wasn't invited to

I love how these mufukas loved Clinton, didn’t’ have a dam thing to say bout Bush 1 or 2, and were quiet as mice when it came to Trump. But when it comes to Obama, errybody got something to say.

‘Dre needs to get on an exercise bike, drop the carbs, and read up on James Baldwin.

I see he is still having problems adjusting to the fact that his days of walking in a white woman shadow is over. Had they invited him he would have on his biggest kufi and uggs. FOH we don't care
