WASHINGTON (Circa) — Kanye is stirring up controversy on Twitter with his latest take that America should "abolish the 13th amendment."
this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love pic.twitter.com/a15WqI8zgu— ye (@kanyewest) September 30, 2018
The 13th Amendment was ratified in 1865 and determined that "slavery" and "involuntary servitude" would no longer exist in the United States.
Kanye tweeted two follow-ups to attempt to clarify what he meant.
the 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended We are the solution that heals— ye (@kanyewest) September 30, 2018
not abolish but. let’s amend the 13th amendment— ye (@kanyewest) September 30, 2018
We apply everyone’s opinions to our platform
Many still feel his intentions are unclear.
These tweets come following his appearance on "Saturday Night Live" the night before, where he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat and launched into a pro-Trump speech at the end of the show.
