Once again, Kanye West has people scratching their heads.
Months after his highly frowned up statement suggesting “400 years” of slavery was “a choice,” West made another controversial remark.
On Sunday, West tweeted a photo of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” Donald Trump hat. He then talked about the need to abolish the United State’s 13th amendment, the amendment that outlawed slavery.
“This represents good and America becoming whole again,” he wrote. “We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”
He followed up with a second tweet, suggesting the 13th amendment did not truly abolish slavery: “The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals.”
Finally, West clarified he wants the 13th amendment “amended,” not outright “abolished.”
“Not abolish but. let’s amend the 13th amendment,” the “Jesus Walks” rapper explained. “We apply everyone’s opinions to our platform.”
One person who is having none of what West has to say is “Avengers: Infinity War” star Chris Evans. The actor berated West in a lengthy and wordy tweet.
And singer Lana Del Rey criticized West for wearing the MAGA hat. “Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture,” she commented on the Instagram version of West’s photo.
“I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of Grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we weren’t speaking about the man leading our country,” Del Rey continued.
Concluding, “If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the p***y just because he’s famous-then you need an intervention as much as he does something so many narcissists will never get because there just isn’t enough help for the issue. Message sent with concern that will never be addressed.”
