Kanye West Stops Mid-Concert to Give 40 Minute Pro-Trump Rant

November 18, 2016

It's always quite interesting to see a well-known celebrity use their platform to discuss political issues.

In a recent concert in San Jose, CA, Kanye West stopped during it to address his stance on the recent election. "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump," he told the crowd. In response, he got many boos from the crowd. 

After performing another song, he stopped once more to say, "I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and y'all sang it at the top of your lungs. That doesn't mean that you're a Trump supporter. That just means you ok with a celebrity having their own opinion. Or that someone else is ok to have their own opinion. That might not be your opinion but you can still like that person or still like that person's music."

Later in the show, he went on to address the issue of racism in America. "Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, ok? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much," he said.

Interesting plot twist in a concert, don't you think? What do you think about his comments?
