Kanye Just Crashed the TMZ Newsroom to Say Slavery Was a Choice

Kanye Just Crashed the TMZ Newsroom to Say Slavery Was a Choice

"When he handed [the pills] to me, he said, 'You know, this is used to kill genius.' Right, so I didn't take it", Kanye revealed. "That sounds like a choice", he said. "You was there for 400 years and it's all of ya'll?" he questioned, as if he somehow missed the section in his high school history book about slave uprisings and Black abolitionists and the Underground Railroad. Ye told the TMZ Live reporters that "we're mentally imprisoned".

In a separate interview with radio host Charlamagne tha God, West said he had not followed Trump's policies but, "When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that". Last week, West posted photos of himself wearing the hat, and was photographed outside in Los Angeles while wearing it. We texting each other. We're taught how to feel. Y'know, there'll be mistakes, there'll be flaws the way I communicate today, because we're human beings, we're flawed. "I felt a freedom". "I'm just saying exactly what I feel out of love".


He enraged many fellow artists - but was embraced by conservative commentators - as he praised Trump, who has since cited the rapper's words as evidence of minority support.

His appearance at the TMZ office escalated after he asked staff members whether they believed he was "being free" and "thinking free". I'm just trying to figure where you're trying to go with this.


"I went to Paris on that trip to protect her but not protect her physically but to just help her with her [outfits]", he explained. Kanye says. "I really want to take that hurt off of them and let the understand that I did not wear that hat to hurt them". Like, you where there for 400 years and there's all of y'all? Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and brother, I'm unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something that's not real.
