Since re-emerging last month from a yearlong absence, Kanye West has sparked outrage by throwing his lot with Donald Trump and calling slavery a choice. Kanye has been and is a very important part of our strategy, and has been a fantastic creator. "That's where I'm going to leave it". Turn your back on Kanye West now, he seems to say, and you're a member of the "thought police", working against the principles of free thought and free love he claims to represent. "Stay in Calabasas, you hear me?"

West later tweeted that his comments on Tuesday had been misinterpreted and that he "brought up the 400 years point because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years".

In a recent interview with TMZ, he stated that slavery in Africa was a choice.

"When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that", West told radio host Charlamagne tha God, adding that he was upset Obama invited other rappers to the White House. While I do not agree with Tyrese's choice to post his video or support him as an allege abuser, I will also reiterate again that I do not agree with the statements Kanye made. You know, it's like we're mentally in prison. That's pretty much the party line at this stage.

Snoop Dogg is the latest celebrity to weigh in on Kanye West's controversial week ... and he's had some fun with Photoshop. "They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone". "You want to think freely, that's fine".

Rorsted said that he had not spoken to West.
