By now you’ve heard that Kayne West went on TMZ to rant about a number of issues, most notably saying that ‘ slavery was a choice.’
Will.i.am, appearing on ‘Good Morning Britain,’ almost broke down in tears while addressing Kayne’s comments:
‘That broke my heart… my grandmother’s grandma, who was a slave. And when you’re a slave, you’re owned. You don’t choose if you’re owned. When you’re a slave you’re deprived of education. That’s not choice, that’s by force…’
Some people have hinted that Kanye may be doing this to promote his upcoming music, LOVE EVERYONE which drops June 2nd.
Will added: ‘I hope it’s not to raise awareness so you could sell some records and some shoes, because that would be the worst thing to do, to stir up this very touchy race situation and you be the benefactor from it.
‘So I encourage you, if you really believe this, give your shoes away for free, give your album away for free.’
Has Kayne West finally gone too far? Is he — as many people have hinted — in the middle of a mental meltdown?
