In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Grammy Award-winning rapper Kanye West, who now goes by Ye, expresses his pro-life perspective. Ye was wearing a custom badge of a baby’s ultrasound to represent life.
Tucker realized the photograph hanging from Ye’s neck and asked “You are wearing a lanyard, what is that?” After hearing it was an ultrasound photo Ye made, Tucker simply asked, “Why wear it?”
Ye responded, “It represents life. I’m pro-life.”
Slightly flustered, Carlson asked, “What sort of response do you get?”
“I don’t care about people’s responses I care about the fact there’s more black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point,” Ye responded, “ That 50 percent of black death in America is abortion.”
“So I really don’t care about people’s response. I perform for an audience of one and that’s god,” Ye concluded.
This message is not new for West as in a 2020 interview with Joe Rogan Ye said “We are in genocide. So, more black children have died in the past, since February, than people have died of COVID, and everyone wears a mask,” he continued.
“So, it’s a matter of where are we turning a blind eye to? The media can control, a lot of times it has control what we care about.”
Kanye has made headlines throughout the week with his political breakout. Although the rapper’s involvement with politics is lengthy, the recent appearance at a fashion show donning a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt was groundbreaking.
In response to why he wore the shirt, Ye recalled a text conversation with his dad, “I said, ‘I thought the shirt was a funny shirt; I thought the idea of me wearing it was funny.’ And I said, ‘Dad, why did you think it was funny?’ He said, ‘Just a Black man stating the obvious.’” West told Carlson.
During this same interview, Ye explained the media attacks on his “good friend” Lizzo for losing weight, and gave insight into his discussions with Ice Cube about how the Black community is viewed in the political eye.
“They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that, they threatened my life,” West continued. “They basically said I would be killed for wearing the hat.”
The process of a full cancellation for his comments is starting.
On Thursday, Adidas, a major partner with West, said it is reviewing its relationship with the outspoken Ye.
Ye has now been banned for violation of terms of service on Instagram for his recent comments and posts.
