Kanye West has apparently decided to embark on a new exciting stage of his career: Tweeting support of the alt right and not completely realizing why people are mad at him -- an exciting step to be sure. Kanye West Tweeted out over the weekend, "I like the way Candace Owens thinks", and after the public googled Candace Owens they realized she is a black conservative who compares the Black Lives Matter movement to whining baby toddlers and on her Twitter feed, and similar thoughts to that. When Kanye was criticized for it, he immediately began Tweeting out sentiments such as "We have freedom of thought but not freedom of ideas", and on Monday was Tweeting out videos of alt right cartoonist Scott Adams talking about him.
Here to discuss this-- let's say, controversial turn, are our hosts, Shira Lazar, Ryan Mitchell, and out special guest, Kalaan "KR" Walker. Kalaan "KR" Walker is a rapper and actor who will be seen in the upcoming 'Superfly' and 'Kings' with Halle Berry and Daniel Craig. So what does this trio have to say about Kanye's much discussed Tweets?
Well, the conversation begins with Ryan jumping in, saying he's ready to drag -- but before he can, KR jumps in with a defense of the rapper turned controversial Tweeter. KR says that Kanye is outspoken, and when you're that outspoken, you're going to create controversy either way, and certain ideas shouldn't be kept in silence. Ryan however points out that he met with Trump months and months ago, and he has to promote new music, so Ryan thinks this is just a strategic ploy to push some buttons to get a reaction, and it takes a lot of work for Ryan not to cancel him right now. However, Ryan says is Kanye is not used to the communities he was once representing, and if he had these opinions he should have expressed them when he didn't have an album to promote.
