Kanye West Stirs Up TMZ Newsroom Over Trump, Slavery, Free Thought

"I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y'all", the 40-year-old continued to tell the TMZ journalists.

Kanye West has wasted no time causing another stir, calling American slavery "a choice". "You was there for 400 years, and it's all of y'all?"

After realising his comment was trivialising almost half a millennium of oppression and hugely offending the masses in one swift statement, he added: 'It's like we're mentally in prison. So prison is something that unites us as one race, whites and blacks being one race. "We're the human race". "So I actually think the rant came from a place of bravery and I had enough of the politics". As the video of him saying that is now going viral (and no-doubt a tsunami of Twitter rage will follow), it seems that the rapper seriously pissed off one TMZ worker who bravely stood up to respond to Kanye's question of, "Do you feel that I'm thinking free?" "You're entitled to believe whatever you want", he said.

Many of his close friends and associates have tried to speak to Kanye about it which ultimately has led to texts conversations being screenshot and posted on his Twitter.

West later tweeted about his comments, including using a discredited quote from abolitionist and political activist Harriet Tubman. "Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled and, brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that's not real".

After taking to Twitter to vocally support Donald Trump, strap on a Make America Great Again hat, and lose millions of followers in the process - he's now weighed in on another topic: slavery.

He enraged many fellow artists - but was embraced by conservative commentators - as he praised Trump, who has since cited the rapper's words as evidence of minority support.

West explained Tuesday that he felt a freedom in sharing the photos. He continues to dig deep into this philosophy with new age gravitas: "We don't know how to feel for ourselves". "We are drugged out, we are following other people's opinions", he claimed. Let us know in our Facebook comments!
