Mario Balotelli Makes Debut As Voice Of Reason Amid Kanye West Comments

  • A new petition calls for Adidas to boycott Kanye West after his controversial 'slavery' comments

Malik Yusef returned to try and explain Kanye West's controversial "slavery is a choice" comment that broke the internet on Wednesday.

When pressed further about Kanye's divisive opinions about the institution of slavery, Rorsted noted that he hadn't had "any conversation with Kanye in the last 24 hours".

"Kanye has been, and is, a very important part of our strategy and has been a fantastic creator", Rorsted said in an interview on Bloomberg TV. "I like the word "imprisoned" because slavery goes too directly to the idea of blacks", he said after his slavery comment. After a steady stream of weird tweets lead many to question his mental health, West popped into TMZ's Los Angeles offices on Tuesday for an impromptu appearance on their TMZ Live television show. "West and tell the world they do not want anything to do with anyone who believes that millions of Africans chose to toil the fields in bondage for 400 years". Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all? You know, it's like we're mentally in prison.

The leap in support comes after rapper Kanye West announced that he supported President Trump and conservative ideology.

Some of those tweets have since been deleted.

"Do you feel like I'm thinking free and feeling free?"

Rallies continued as the opposition demands an interim prime minister, who will not be from the ruling party. A candidate needs 53 votes to get elected.

"It proved that anything is possible in America...oh that was proven that that could have happened", Kanye said in an interview with Charlemagne regarding Trump's 2016 victory. "Kanye will always be a friend of mine & although I might not necessarily agree with his views on certain topics, that is what separate us as individuals".

Adidas has partnered with West since 2013, in what has been one of its most significant business relationships with a non-athlete. Why would someone that has so much put himself in such harm's way and in the direct line of fire? "They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone".

"The statement was an example of free thought".

Despite the backlash among liberals, it's clear that Kanye West is slowly beginning to win more black support for President Trump.

Celebrities and everyday people took to social media to address these comments through memes, justification, for frustration.
