Kanye West tearfully apologizes for his slavery comment! (Video)
When Kanye West (41) went on TMZ and said those words he uttered about slavery, "When you hear about slavery for 400 years—for 400 years? That sounds like a choice", these words to be exact, the star was fired with so much hatred that he even mentioned in one of his interviews that he thought his wife, Kim Kardashian, was going to leave him because of the comment he just made! Well, seems like he is apologetic now and wants to regain the love! This is what he said in his interview with WGCI!
"I'm sorry for the 1-2 effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment and I'm sorry for people who felt let down by that moment."
"And what I was going through and what led me to that and I just appreciate you guys holding on to me as a family."
"One thing I got from the TMZ comment is it showed me how much black people love me and how much black people count on me independently."
"I appreciate that. I said, '400 years—it sounds like a choice to me, to Kanye West."
"Which I think is aligned with the spirit of Harriet Tubman, which I think is aligned with the spirit of Nat Turner, which, in my non-historical opinion."
"I don't know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel." Kanye West is trying to make amends for comments about slavery that found him at the center of controversy earlier this summer. https://t.co/ovc0CV6qlEpic.twitter.com/s0e6SRGwyt— CNN International (@cnni) August 29, 2018
"I feel that these are examples from the past of people who felt similar to that even if it was worded incorrectly in the white man's tongue."
"Maybe I could have danced or maybe I could have spoken Swahili and spoken the actual language because even the fact that…"
"That feeling, that emotion, that ramped-up feeling, that medium connection with spirituality that we got to witness on TV."
Jimmy Kimmel in a recent interview he had with Kanye also asked him: "You so famously and so powerfully said George Bush doesn't care about black people."
And the co-host Kendra G said: "Do you feel as though Donald Trump cares about all people—black people included?"
In answer to these, Kanye said: "I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him and he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs,"
"He will do the things that are necessary to make that happen because he's got an ego like all the rest of us…."
Trump turned the world on its head. And he has fought through the leftist guards, opened the prison door & is teaching minorities & others how to live independent & free.— SuperElite Angele (@AngeleStar11) August 18, 2018
As for the very important cultural level... could it be Kanye?? Someone has to take back 'art and culture'. pic.twitter.com/vQ3JarCb8e
"...and he wants to be the greatest president and he knows that he can't be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community, so it's something that he's gonna work towards, but were gonna have to speak to him."
