Frank Ocean made a return to Tumblr on Tuesday afternoon to voice his support for Michelle Wolf, the comedian whose hosting performance at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner has been criticized as "bullying."

"I like the way Michelle Wolf thinks 😄" Ocean posted, a reference to Kanye West's tweet praising far-right activist Candace Owens. It's the second time Ocean has obliquely weighed into Kanye's controversial embrace of the right wing – last week he shared a picture of Kanye West's iconic "George Bush doesn't care about black people" salvo at a Hurricane Katrina telethon.

While media personalities (who Wolf also targeted in her speech) have criticized her performance as too mean, fellow comedians like Dave Chappelle and Seth Meyers have praised Wolf. "I'm glad I stuck to my guns," Wolf said in a recent interview on NPR's Fresh Air.
