Kanye West is not down with the #MeToo movement and cancel culture. He is never at a loss for words and this was classic Ye.
West appeared on Drink Champs with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN this week and dismissed cancel culture and the #MeToo movement as being a part of “mob mentality” and “1984 mind control.”
The #MeToo movement started on social media a few years back and has brought several celebrities and powerful people down. West dismissed the floor of public sexual assault claims, calling them “power and politics by power hungry maniacs.”
West recalled his recent “Donda” preview performance at Soldier Field in Chicago with Marilyn Manson and Da Baby, which came right after they had been “canceled” for controversial actions.
All the #MeToo – like, when I sit next to Marilyn Manson and DaBaby right after both of them got canceled … it’s like, they can’t cancel us all!
West continued to dismiss the seriousness of most #MeToo complaints, but acknowledged that there are women who have been through really bad incidents.
Also, there’s women who’ve been through really serious things, pulled in alleys against they will – that’s different than a hug, but it’s classified as the same thing. It’s power and politics. You know, power-hungry maniacs and just, control. This is 1984 mind control that we in, and mob mentality.
West once received major backlash for his support of former President Donald Trump, and for wearing Trump’s signature red MAGA hat. West made it clear in the interview that he still supports Trump.
I’ve still got a red hat on today, I’ll let y’all know that — I might not got it on, but I’ll let y’all know where I stand.
Ye also admitted during the interview that he “still wants to be” with estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
