Chris Rock responded to that tweet with “Can’t Wait”.

Many experts have been saying for weeks that we might not actually know tomorrow night or, for that matter, by Saturday night next week either. So… get ready for a mindf-ck of a week where the world will need all the joy it can get.
Which means we need a LOT of Mimi. And she’s here to let us know that Halloween is finally f-cking over.
We’ll try to balance the anxiety with some fun over the next few days. Most importantly though… AMERICA… if you haven’t already, GO OUT AND VOTE.
Yours in gossip,
