Vivica A. Fox recalled Ivanka Trump making a racist comment on "Celebrity Apprentice."
Vivica A. Fox recalled meeting former President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, while on Celebrity Apprentice, and says that she made a racist comment towards her. Fox discussed the incident with Andy Cohen in his series For Real: The Story of Reality TV.
“I’ll never forget that when I did Celebrity Apprentice and Ivanka Trump, she said, ‘Wow, you speak very well,’” the Empire star recalled.
“No, Andy. I hate to say it,” Fox continued. “I don’t think she knew at the time that she was insulting us. I really think that she thought she was complimenting us. That it was like, ‘Oh, wow, you guys are intelligent.’”
“I don’t think she knows now,” responded Cohen.
He added: “Think of the layers and layers of white people that saw a cut of that show and aired it and they said, ‘Oh, this is great.’”

Fox's appearance on Celebrity Apprentice came in 2015, one year prior to Trump's Presidential election.
Earlier this week, Fox made headlines when she criticized Khloé Kardashian for being a doormat for Tristan Thompson.
"It's time for Khloé to stop being a damn doormat for Tristan," said Vivica. "First of all, you are a Kardashian, girl. I'm sure it's plenty of brothas lining up. They all just wanna take a trip, you know what I mean... At this point, do you really want this kind of man to be a parental father figure to your children? The fact that he can't even respect mama?"
