Kanye West attempted to turn the social media sphere on its head when he re-activated his Twitter account and began tweeting about supporting views of conservative political pundits, and supporting Donald Trump. As his friends and other celebs called him out in private and on social media, very few celebs came to his defense.
Erykah Badu was one of the few to defend Kanye and his opinions.
Recently, regarding Kanye’s recent opinions, Erykah tweeted Kanye the following:
See. That’s what you get for brain… U know that’s illegal in most states right?
This tweet didn’t go over well with her followers or Black Twitter in general. In fact, followers immediately called her out for tweeting out that comment.
People called her out for appearing to sympathize and seemingly support Kanye’s opinions and opinions of those that want to continue to oppress African-Americans. But Erykah wasn’t here for that criticism.
To one person she said:
Ok that’s fair I’ll take that..even Tho my points are consistently missed. . But yeah I can see THIS YE subject was bigger than me before I commented .lol. But AGAIN.. still I say speak your mind.. even if U don’t have the most popular opinion. But expect a HEAVY resistance. ??
No baby, Not a matter of a individuals being “wrong”or”right”.Perhaps a matter of accepting (& I’m going to stretch &even say ‘respecting’) the thoughts of others when they are “different ” from YOURS or those of the “group’s”.Something is “wrong” with that. DIALOGUE vs DEMONIZE
Check out the interesting conversation below.
In other news, Kanye West keeps digging a deeper hole. This time, during his interview with TMZ, he says it sounds like the 400 years of American Slavery “seemed like a choice.”
He also double-down on his positive views of Trump and said the hip-hop community also loved Trump before he became president.
After the interview, TMZ’s Van Lathan checked Kanye for the foolishness he spewed on tape. Van called him out for saying things like slavery being a choice.
Check out what he said and Van’s response below.

Both are cancelled. But let me go on Twitter and see how Kanye’s stans are defending this slavery comment.
Erykah and Kanye are both examples of people who swear they are intelligent but don’t even take the time to read any books.
Erykah and Kanye are basically just your typical and very ignorant hoteps. I’m not angry because neither one has gotten any cons from me in a long time.
LOL! Let Kanye keep digging a deeper hole for himself.
UB in his interview with Charla he said that he doesn’t like that Harriet Tubman is going to be on the $20. He said Jordan should be on there instead. Not only does he hate his own blackness, but he really can’t stand black women.
All skin folk ain’t kinfolk.
How does Kanye, a black man in his 30s, not know about the slave revolutions? This is why people need to shut up with this free thinker bs. He’s not a free thinker. He’s just dumb and completely full of himself. And I have no words for Badu. I’ve been done with her since she said little girls don’t need to wear short skirts so their male teachers won’t molest them. She’s fake deep and dumb!
Van lost me when he called Kanye a genius. Kanye is not a genius and never was. People with high intellect love to learn and are well read and informed. Kanye is neither of those things. He’s not intelligent and clearly hates being black. I wish all these people would stop lying about him being a genius. That’s part of the reason he’s the way he is now. His inflated ego is exhausting.
Dumb and Dumber.
I wish both of them would shut their fake deep a-ses up! They are rich and live in their little ignorant a-s bubbles because they can afford to. And neither one of them knows what free thinking/free thought is. Half of America supports Trump. Kanye ain’t no special snowflake. Neither is Erykah. She’s the typical male identified black woman. She ain’t special either!
Kanye is an idiot. I hope Kim realizes that he’s ruining her brand with these ignorant rants.
What brand? Kim is a p-rn star. if anything, she’s the one who ruined Kanye’s brand. He’s been losing since he got with her.
BYE KRIS!!!! This ain’t TMZ. I don’t care if Kanye wrong but you not about to victimize Kim sorry arse like she ain’t approving his messages. FOH
Kanye needs help, medication and therapy, deep therapy for the next 20 years. I never thought he was a genius, he never said anything profoundly deep to me & Ms. Badu should never ever speak, she is and has always been dumb as a bag of rocks & now she wants to encourage this fool like he needs it….. Oh boy…
