In a wild series of events, Black Twitter first roasted Tim Allen for not knowing how to play the card game Spades and then dragged him for his history of racism.

I feel like you both have ‘Black cards,’ Valentine said in the interview.

Valentine then asked a question about Spades. Hanks answered perfectly and even added an anecdote about his time playing Bid Whist in Oakland, Californiaproving that he indeed has a Black card.

Allen, on the other hand, was confused and seemed uncomfortable.

I dont know what you guys are talking about, Allen said. I dont have any idea what you guys just said.

Allen remained deadpan for the rest of the interview, and when Hanks asked him if he knew how to play Spades, Allen responded, Im gonna say I do just cause I want to move on.

After Valentine posted the clip from the interview to the internet, Black Twitter was sent into a frenzyand not necessarily because Allen doesnt know how to play spades. Instead, they used the opportunity to remind people that Allen has a history of racism.
