Ziwe Is Facing Backlash For Wanting to Interview George Santos

Ziwe Is Facing Backlash For Wanting to Interview George Santos

Would the interview be a gag? Or just a flop?

Ziwe’s usually the one to put people in the hot seat, but right now, the comedian and journalist is the one facing fire.

The trouble started when Ziwe, one of the most popular late-night hosts in years, reached out on X (formerly Twitter) for an interview with disgraced former congressman George Santos on Twitter.

“@MrSantosNY would you be interested in a pay-per-view interview? You’d be an iconic guest,” Ziwe tweeted at Santos.

“Let’s do it @ziwe,” he then responded.

Santos has been in the headlines this year after he became one of the most outspoken Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives, regularly speaking out on Right Wing issues.

He became an even bigger headline when he became embroiled in a series of lies and controversies that included campaign finance violations, lies about his background and experience, and misusing campaign funds for personal expenses.

After a vote last Friday, Santos was expelled by the House, becoming just the sixth member of the body in history to be expelled in this way.

Now, some people online who would usually be fans of Ziwe are saying that her offer to interview Santos goes against what she normally stands for.

Still, others are saying that an interview between biting comedian Ziwe and a ridiculous stunt queen like George Santos would be one of the most entertaining interviews in years.

For now, we’ll have to wait to see if an interview really happens or not...
