At around 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Kanye and his entourage walked into Trump Tower in NYC (opens in new tab) to take a meeting with president-elect Donald Trump. When they emerged in the Tower's lobby together about an hour later and were asked what they talked about, Trump vaguely responded "Life" while Kanye said "I just want to take a picture right now."
People did not take well to this mysterious visit. Here are some of the best celebrity reactions:
