DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club recently confronted late-night comedy duo Desus and Mero during a visit to the popular morning show, addressing jokes the pair made at his wife’s expense.
A clip of DJ Envy’s appearance on The Real was shown where wife Gia Casey says, “I knew him as Raashaun, my husband at home not as the street DJ Envy,” with Desus replying, “Yeah, but you know them DJ Envy checks.”
While the pair apologized for the remark, Envy was still upset enough to walk out of the interview.
Desus & Mero responded on their own show via Viceland, mocking Envy’s attempts to “check” them and his decision to storm out of his own show, saying he exhibited “nothing but light skin feelings.”
Check out the reaction from Desus & Mero below.
