'Insecure' Renewed for Season 4 Despite Issa Rae's Cancellation Threats if Melania Trump Liked It

After comedic actress Issa Rae claimed Insecure would be canceled if first lady Melania Trump liked her show, she took to Twitter to reveal the acclaimed HBO series has been renewed for Season 4.

"#InsecureHBO has been renewed for Season 4," Rae, 33, tweeted Thursday. "Thank you to everyone who has been watching and supporting!"

Rae's beef with Trump surfaced in a feature she did with Glamour on Tuesday. In the interview, she recalled speaking with former first lady Michelle Obama about her love for Insecure. Obama told Rae how her daughters, Malia and Sasha, introduced her to the comedic series. She then referenced the President Donald Trump's wife, suggesting she wouldn't be able to comprehend the show's significance as Obama does.

"It was like talking to my auntie. It bums me out that I will never have that feeling again of the First Family f***ing with us so hard and getting us," Rae told Glamour. "If Melania [Trump] said that to me, I would be like, 'Well, I guess it's canceled. We're not making this show. It's not ours anymore.'"

Stephanie Grisham, the press secretary and communications director for the first lady of the United States (FLOTUS), caught wind of Rae's remarks against Trump. On Thursday, Grisham took to Twitter to reveal her boss is apparently is fond of Insecure. "Alert: FYI @IssaRae, @FLOTUS likes your show," Grisham tweeted.

To this, Rae snapped back, saying: "Melania or the double?"

Insecure, which has earned Rae both Emmy and Golden Globe nods, is a show dedicated to portraying what the black experience is like in today's world. In light of this, Rae elaborated on her experience working with white writers on Insecure.

The Stanford University alum explained how the show's white writers don't always understand the lines written in the scripts until it's played out on television, telling Glamour: "Sometimes the white writers will be like, 'I didn't even know what that line meant until I watched the show,' and I'm like, 'That's OK. There are some things that are just for us.'"

In August 2017, Rae revealed she watched predominantly black sitcoms like Girlfriends and A Different World growing up. She then mentioned how the presence of show's of this caliber is not as apparent in today's television landscape.

"Somewhere along the way, being white became seen as 'relatable,' and you started to see people of color only reflected as stereotypes or specific archetypes," Rae explained to the Guardian. "So much of the media now presents blackness as being cool, or able to dance, or fierce and flawless, or just out of control; I'm not any of those things."
