He has stayed controversial for the wrong reasons with obvious signs now showing possible rift between him and his wife Kim Kardashian which many think might lead to divorce.
To a lot of Black people he is that black man that betrayed the community. And to buttress that fact even further was his recent rant in the Oval office.
Which many are now referring as the Ten Minutes Praise session.
CNN Don Lemon discussing the matter with Wolf Blitzer had this to say.
“Listen, I have no animosity for Kanye West. I’m just going to be honest and I may get in a lot of trouble for it. I actually feel bad for him. What I saw was a minstrel show today.”
“Him in front of all these white people, mostly white people, embarrassing himself and embarrassing Americans, but mostly African-Americans, because every one of them is sitting either at home or with their phones, watching this, cringing,” he continued. “I couldn’t even watch it. I had to turn the television off because it was so hard to watch,” claiming the president is “using and exploiting” a person who clearly ‘needs help‘.
“We need to take the cameras away from Kanye and from a lot of this craziness that happens in the White House because it is not normal and we need to stop sitting here pretending that it’s normal,” Don explained. “This was an embarrassment. Kanye’s mother is rolling over in her grave.”
“We’re watching someone’s demise in front of our eyes,” Don added. “Can you imagine if President Barack Obamahad Kanye West or any rapper or any person, entertainer in the oval office who said ‘MF’? Can you imagine? Everybody’s heads would be exploding. Not just over at Fox News, not just the conservatives, everybody’s heads would be exploding saying, what’s happening?” These are strange times indeed.
