Kanye West: Holy Sh**
By: Ben Halpern
Over the last few years, Kanye West has gained a lot of criticism and raised a lot of eyebrows with some of his comments. But it wasn’t until more recently that people have started to really show their concern for Kanye.
Kanye West tweeted out that he would run for President during the 2020 election. And during his rambling campaign, where he was seeking to qualify for the state ballot as an independent party, Kanye said, “Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had the slaves go work for other white people.” 50 Cent both tweeted and criticized Kanye for his comments, and social media did not hold back either. Also, during his rally, Kanye said that he “Almost killed his daughter.” He was talking about his most recent child North West, and said he almost had an abortion. Sheesh!
But it didn’t stop there. Kanye went on a tweeting spree. He claimed that his wife, Kim Kardashian, slept with rapper Meek Mill and disguised it as a meeting for “prison reform”. He tweeted that he wanted an immediate divorce and called Kris Jenner “Kris Jung-Un” in reference to North Korea dictator King Jung-Un. He also tweeted, “Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor.” These are not the things someone who is mentally stable would say, and so there is a lot of concern for Kanye.
Hopefully, Kanye will soon get the help that he needs with his mental illness. He has always been one of my favorite musical artists ever and I hope he can overcome his issues.
