Kanye West took to the TMZ offices to talk about his life and what he’s currently dealing with, but at one point followed it by calling slavery “a choice.”
On TMZ Live, West defended his support of President Donald Trump and the “Make America Great Again” slogan by saying he loves his “boy” Trump.
His transition on discussing race, stated, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, you were there for 400 years and there’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”

TMZ employee and Red Pill Podcast host, Van Lathan made sure to voice his disapproval for Kanye’s “absence of thought,” calling the rapper’s opinions “hurtful and shocking.” Many on social media agreed with Lathan.

Kanye made sure to go back to Twitter to clarify his stance on his statement.

Who knows how this Kanye saga will play out. The only thing we know is that The College Dropout genius that once existed is no longer speaking for the people.

However, Lathan made sure to respond to what had happened.
