People, Kanye West is at it once more.
The rapper-turned-fashion mogul-turned-professional rightwing provocateur is as soon as once more doing what he does greatest — hurling invective as his perceived enemies and blathering about what a misunderstood genius he’s.
It will virtually be entertaining, have been it not for the truth that Kanye’s place as a wildly influential billionaire permits him to do actual harm.
Prior to now week alone, West has stirred up controversy within the following methods:
First, he wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt at a Paris Trend Week occasion.
Then he launched one other assault in opposition to the mom of his 4 children, claiming that Kim Kardashian has kidnapped the kids for the aim of throwing them secret birthday events.
And he revealed that he has a “crush” on Stassie Karanikolaou, the 25-year-old greatest good friend of his spouse’s youngest sister, Kylie Jenner.
That final half won’t be so bizarre if it weren’t for the truth that Kanye is 45 and has identified Stassie since she was in her teenagers.
Anyway, there’s just one factor an more and more unhinged movie star can do to cap off the madness of such a bonkers week: go on Tucker Carlson’s present.
“I assumed the shirt was a humorous shirt,” Kanye informed Carlson about his controversial shirt.
“I assumed that the thought of me carrying it was humorous.”
Kanye went on to elucidate the reasoning behind the slogan:
“Black man stating the apparent,” he stated.
“The reply to why I wrote ‘White Lives Matter’ on a shirt is as a result of they do. It’s the apparent factor.”
Naturally, it wasn’t lengthy earlier than Kanye’s love of Donald Trump got here up for dialogue.
And naturally, West spewed some paranoid nonsense about how he risked his life by supporting 45.
“My so-called friends-slash-handlers round me informed me if I stated that I appreciated Trump that my profession can be over, that my life can be over,” he stated.
“They stated stuff like, ‘Individuals get killed for carrying a hat like that.’ They threatened my life. They mainly stated that I might be killed for carrying the hat.”
To this point, it’s been the same old silliness that one would anticipate from a dialog between Kanye and Tucker.
However from there, the dialog took a really bizarre flip, as West launched a conspiracy principle that had one thing to do with Lizzo’s physique:
“When Lizzo loses 10 kilos and pronounces it, the bots … assault her for dropping pounds as a result of the media desires to place out a notion that being chubby is the brand new aim, when it’s really unhealthy,” West stated.
“If somebody thinks it’s engaging, to every his personal. It’s really clinically unhealthy. And for individuals to advertise that, it’s demonic.”
Sure, Kanye is now of the opinion that Lizzo — presumably the least demonic particular person on the planet — is underneath the management of demons.
Most individuals would inform him to STFU after spewing that type of idiocy.
Luckily, Ye has present in a kindred spirit within the equally-dim Tucker Carlson.
