Herbo Believes Kanye West Is A "Traitor"

Kanye West quotes Twitter Getty Kanye West has compared himself to Disney and throws another dig at Taylor Swift

The rapper said 400 years of slavery "sounds like a choice" in a video interview with TMZ.com earlier this week, comments that drew condemnation from stars including will.i.am and Ava DuVernay.

Rorsted said Thursday that Adidas is against slavery and racism.

"Best believe, I'm going to take the stigma off the word 'crazy'". "We are banning Kanye West's music from this radio station", BiGG said. "If you just hear him say something in 10 seconds or 15 seconds, you're going to think he's lost his mind".

In the past I have been a fan of Kanye West, but the latest news about him has left me quite speechless.

"Unless Kanye chooses to have much more staged interview moments, we have to ignore some of the stupidity while paying attention to the moments of genius", McCunes said.

West later tweeted that his comments on Tuesday had been misinterpreted and that he "brought up the 400 years point because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years".

Some of those tweets have since been deleted.

It is important that we use this situation as an opportunity to educate ourselves on mental health in the African American community and address how trauma alters the brain, and can increase the likelihood of someone developing a mental illness.

Adidas CEO Kasper Rørsted was confronted with West's comments during an interview on Bloomberg TV. As someone who survived suicide and now battles a chronic mental illness, there was only so much I could find amusing, and this situation walks a thin line between humorous and sad. And the reason why I feel like that is because, Kanye, you're entitled to your opinion. I'm not gonna do that s**t.

Feminist writer Roxane Gay tweeted, "I don't have the energy for nonsense but Kanye saying slavery was a choice reiterates my previous statements about how unsafe his trite, shallow ramblings are".

West, who has also expressed support for President Donald Trump in recent days, later sought to clarify his remarks.

"We need to have open discussions and ideas on unsettled pain", he said, per The Independent.

While he stressed how important West was to his brand, Rørsted also added that "there clearly are some comments we don't support".

He later explained that Kanye's just being Kanye and as soon as people accept that, they'll be "more comfortable you'll be when you slide back into your Yeezy's".
