Andrew Yang Gets Praise From Jeb Bush For Comments On SNL Controversy

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang recently took to Twitter to address the past racist comments made by Shane Gillis, a new addition to the Saturday Night Live cast. CNN reports that Yang spoke about his experiences in the face of Anti-Asian racism and suggested that he still believes Gillis should keep his job, pointing to a pattern he sees in the United States of people becoming “excessively punitive and vindictive” over offensive or racist comments.

Yang’s approach was controversial, with some suggesting that Gillis’ comments were unacceptable and letting them go unpunished is doing more harm than good. Others, such as American journalist and author David French, responded positively to Yang’s comments.

“This Yang thread is gold,” he tweeted.

In response to French’s comment, former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush took it a step further.

“Platinum,” he tweeted, which drew a very positive response from Yang’s supporters on Twitter.
