  • Kim K 'Terrified' For Kanye's Life After Crips Put Hit On Him: 'Her Anxiety Is Through The Roof'

We have to deal with the marginalization that's come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice.

In the previous video, Van blasted the Chicago rapper for his slavery remarks and said he was out of touch. "Kanye and Yeezy is a very important part of our brand from a revenue standpoint.It's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world". The Tyrese challenge went viral and I was upset the people in my community were laughing at someone in severe mental distress. Over the weekend, West also reportedly told a radio host, "I do love Donald Trump", doubling down on pro-Trump statements he made back in November 2016 during his Saint Pablo Tour and after he visited the newly elected Trump, at Trump Tower in December 2016.

A petition calling for Adidas to fire West because of that statement has been posted online, with a goal of reaching 10,000 signatures.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years". I'm not going to comment on every comment he or somebody else are making.

"There clearly are some comments we don't support", Rorsted said, but stopped short of distancing Adidas from Kanye and his Yeezy Boost imprint with the sportswear brand. Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all?


These tweets have since been deleted.

Adidas CEO Kasper Rørsted was confronted with West's comments during an interview on Bloomberg TV. "If they're an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there's controversy at that moment, we're really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today". Why would someone that has so much put himself in such harm's way and in the direct line of fire?

Fans of Kanye's music got excited when he tweeted "me and Cudi album June 8th". "And we have the right to independent thought". "They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone".

As of Thursday morning, over 8,000 supporters have signed.

Despite the backlash among liberals, it's clear that Kanye West is slowly beginning to win more black support for President Trump. "Slavery was a choice-for white people", Trevor Noah said in a response on The Daily Show.
