Judd Apatow mocks Kanye’s mask as he sits a few rows behind at SB

UPDATED 02/14, 8:25 PM ET: Kanye caught wind of Judd Apatow’s post and responded on Instagram, writing, “This is what happens when you don’t get a Hilary tattoo.”

See the original story below.

Both King of Staten Island director Judd Apatow and entertainer formerly known as Kanye West were among the attendees of Super Bowl LVI, which ultimately saw the Los Angeles Rams prove victorious over the Cincinnati Bengals, with a mid- time centered on Dr. Dre.

Documenting the experience on Instagram, Apatow revealed that he actually sat quite close to Ye, who originally arrived at Sunday’s televised proceedings wearing one of his full-coverage masks that have become an oft-imitated staple of the donda and 2 time.

“I’m sitting next to Kanye. He looks very hot and sweaty in the mask,” Apatow, who served as a producer on the Ye-with Presenter 2: the legend continues, joking. “I heard him say, ‘Man, I wish I hadn’t gone in with the mask on today, but now that I’m in it, I can’t really get away with it. Do you think I could lose it at halftime? It seems like a logical place to make a change. His friends said, ‘No. You have to commit. Then Kanye said “I wish we cut more vents in this thing.” Then his mate said, ‘I told you to go with the scary contact lenses but you didn’t listen. You never listen. Go Rams!”

In a follow-up post, Apatow shared a photo of Ye without a face covering, extending the joke. “I was too hot. I can’t do it,” the Apatow Productions founder wrote in the caption. See more below.

On Monday, Julia Fox offered a brief response to Apatow’s joke-focused comment via an emoji-laden comment on a later Page Six IG update.

Notably, Fox’s muted reaction comes amid reports that she and Ye have ended their brief (but well-documented) relationship. A representative for the No sudden movement star and Forbidden fruit co-host told E! News that she and Ye will “remain good friends and collaborators,” although they are “no longer together.”

As for Apatow, this isn’t the first time he’s launched into Ye-focused commentary. During an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch what’s happening live in 2017, for example, Apatow explained how a costume design disagreement briefly delayed the filming of the aforementioned Ye’s. Presenter 2 cameo.
