Kanye West Takes To Twitter To Clear Up His Thoughts On Mental Slavery

On May 1, Kanye West was the topic of discussion when he stopped by TMZ Live and claimed that  slavery was a choice. 

""When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years?! That sounds like a choice," the rapper said.  

Shortly after, Ye's controversial comments went viral, and he hopped on Twitter to clarify what he was trying to say.


According to Kanye's twitter, he didn't mean any harm when he was talking about slavery, but we'll leave that up to the public to determine his true intention.

If you though that was the end of it , its not. The rapper got into a heated discussion with a TMZ employee Van Lathan about West’s behavior, and how it is being perceived by the Black community, Lathan stated 

“Frankly, I’m disappointed, I’m appalled and, brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that’s not real.”
