Kanye West claims that Hollywood bullied him so severely for endorsing Donald Trump that he was unable to speak about it any longer, which made him question the value of fame.
In the second segment of his interview with Tucker Carlson on the FNC, Ye made the assertion, claiming that it “drove me crazy not to be able to declare I liked Trump.” He was particularly surprised that he would be pursued because, as he puts it, he is Kanye!
Ye dug even further, wondering why he had put in so much effort to become well-known, acquiring millions of devoted followers and a sizable platform, if Hollywood didn’t want him to utilize his own voice and link it to his own beliefs.
Ye’s complaints are a continuation of what he said to Tucker in the segment of the interview that aired on Thursday, where he claimed he respects Russell Brand and Candace Owens for speaking up against the norm and regardless of the repercussions.
He also discusses his friendship with Barack Obama, another former president. Ye claims that their relationship soured “soon as I wasn’t meant to be expressing the things I wasn’t allowed to say as a rapper”; nonetheless, he adds that he would still speak with Obama if they crossed paths.
As we previously reported, Kanye West admitted to Tucker that he received death threats as a result of donning the red MAGA hat during his notorious 2018 visit to the White House.
