Kanye West‘s quest for the US presidency hit quite the roadblock moments ago.
Because the ever-outspoken star just uttered an incomprehensible statement about celebrated Civil Rights activist Harriet Tubman while on a campaign rally in South Carolina.
Watch the shocking footage below…
Speaking to a stunned audience, West exclaimed:
“Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people.”

His words follow reports that his family are allegedly concerned that he’s having a bipolar episode.
West previously made headlines for saying slavery was a choice.
