Rodney: She tweeted he was too immature for a relationship, and he tweeted: bitch cheated. So she tweeted: not true, and he tweeted: #lyingskankswhoneedalife. So she tweeted: for the record, he’s the one who cheated, and he tweeted: not what my buddy says #brosbeforehos. So she tweeted: my mother always says you can never go wrong staying classy and rising above, and he tweeted: somebody should shut that bitch-ass-ho up.
Interviewer: So you did?
Rodney: I did.
Interviewer: How did you know that’s what he actually wanted?
Rodney: It’s not up to me to question His word.
Interviewer: You think of him as a sort of god?
Rodney: He is a God, yes.
Interviewer: Are you his only disciple?
Rodney: He has six million followers on Twitter.
Interviewer: And when did you first find god?
Rodney: He reached out to me when I lost my job. He didn’t judge me. He never failed me. He never walked out on me. He never left my side.
Interviewer: You watched his reality show?
Rodney: I recognized the wisdom in his teachings.
Interviewer: Have you ever actually met your god?
Rodney: No. Have you ever met yours?
