Kanye West appeared to be auditioning for the ‘Get Out’ sequel live on Twitter last night, because the rapper was serving all sorts of sunken place.
In a stream of tweets that played out over the course of the entire day, Ye professed his love for his “brother” Donald Trump, slammed Barack Obama, and went on to slam those critiquing him for his views.
Naturally, his liberal leaning (and heavily Afro-American) support-base clapped back in disbelief. Even celebs added to the “why, Kanye?’ sentiment.
However, Yeezy did find support from…some. See what we mean below…
First to spring to his defence was Chance The Rapper, who offered the following…
Thereafter wife Kim Kardashian waded in on the debate (which saw “Kanye” mentioned over 1 million times on Twitter). She said:
Once upon a time “all publicity was good publicity.” However, Kanye’s actions of late make it difficult to see how he plans to sell his slate of new music to a fanbase so angered by this behavior. Political affiliations aside, he’s far too seasoned to be caping for this cause at the expense of his own career. He’s no one’s renaissance man – especially in a climate as fraught as now.
As for Kim, she ought to can it.
Their collective brand of attention-seeking is one of the very things that’s been the undoing of Kanye as many have known and loved him. It’s by no means her” fault, but the overall association is pretty much where “sunken place” comparisons are pulled from. A reality the Wests seem to be missing entirely.
