In a recent interview, Kanye West sat down to talk about the recent controversy surrounding his support for President Donald Trump.
“I never really approached or addressed the slavery comment fully, and it’s not something for me to over-intellectualize,” he said. “This is something about the fact that it hurt people’s feelings and the way that I presented that piece of information.
“I could present in a way more calm way, but I was ramped up. And I apologize. That happens sometimes when people are — I’m not blaming mental health, but I’m explaining mental health.”
“I don’t know if I properly apologized for how the slavery comment made people feel. I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment, and I’m sorry for people that felt let down by that moment.” He continued.
