  • Donald Trump Kanye West

In an interview with TMZ West said the enslavement of African people was a "choice". "Kanye and Yeezy is a very important part of our brand from a revenue standpoint.It's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world".

However, the German businessman hinted that the star's outburst was an unwanted distraction adding, "I saw the comment as you have seen it. That sounds like a choice", he said, which, of course: It wasn't. 105.1 host Shay Shay also took issue with previous comments West made about race, including saying that icons like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were "too far in the past and not relatable".

Right away, the 28-year-old conservative started talking about slavery and disagreed with Van that it's something the Black community is still reeling from.

'Kanye's a different guy, ' the former safety said ... During an interview with Bloomberg TV on Thursday, Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted was grilled about the company's reaction to Kanye's recent comments, and particularly the ones he made earlier this week claiming that slavery was "a choice".

Vikes' Newman says he's retiring after season
The Vikings also drafted Mike Hughes out of Central Florida in the first round Thursday. For his career, Waynes has five interceptions and 35 passes defensed.

Some of those tweets have since been deleted. You know, it's like we're mentally in prison.

Whether he is mentally ill, showing his genius or both, there is no denying that Kanye West has been making waves just about everywhere online and it could all be part of a bigger plan. "Like, 'Man you getting out of line, bro, you trippin", imma beat you up.' I was like, aw, man, that's love, man. Daz love me and I love Daz". I'm just gonna sit back, man, I'm not gonna step away or shun him, because when you look at other demographics they don't do that to theirs. I've not had any conversations with Kanye over the last 24 hours... But I do want to focus on the core, what the company's about is delivering the best sporting goods products in the world, and having our consumers buy those products, and that's what's happening right now in the marketplace.

Rorsted continues, "For many, many years, we [Adidas] have been a member of the USA human rights declaration, which speaks very clearly.against slavery, racism, child labor, etc". However, these examples highlight the complexities of mental illness and how many of us are quick to just think it is amusing.
