Kanye West Discusses “White Lives Matter,” MAGA, And Other Topics On Fox News
Kanye West summarized a week’s worth of controversy during an interview with Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson on Thursday, October 6. The fashion designer covered a wide range of topics during the live conversation, including his support for former US President Donald Trump and his ex-friendship wife’s with the Clintons.
The 45-year-old rapper talked openly about his pro-life views while wearing a lanyard that included an image of an ultrasound of a baby. “It simply symbolizes life. I support life,” he said to Tucker. The reality that Black infants are currently being aborted more frequently than they are being born in New York City is what I care about, not how other people react to me.
Ye went on to discuss his friendship with Trump and the controversial MAGA hat. “My so-called friends/handlers around me told me if I said that I liked Trump that my career would be over. That my life would be over. They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that. They threatened my life.”
The father of four also mentioned how proud he was to have created the contentious “White Lives Matter” t-shirt for his Yeezy Season 9 line.
“My dad is an educated ex-Black Panther and he sent a text to me today. He said, ‘White Lives Matter hahaha.’ And 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 do you think it’s funny?’ And he said, ‘Just a Black man stating the obvious.’
Only after the interview, Kanye made reference to Kim Kardashian, his estranged wife, and her political views.
