Kanye West is really taking some heat for his recent comments…
It’s only been a week since rapper and entrepreneur said that he liked the way a conservative black political commentator Candace Owens, has come out in support of Donald Trump, posted photos wearing a MAGA hat, criticized Barack Obama ignoring the problems in Chicago for 8 years as President, and then said that blacks can think freely. He also compared himself to Harriet Tubman abolitionist and freer of slaves, as well as slave rebellion leader Nat Turner.
It’s been quite a week.
The backlash has been massive.
On Thursday, one Detroit Hip Hop station announced that it was going to ban all of Kanye’s music as a result of his comments on TMZ Live.
DJs BiGG and Shay Shay of 105.1 The Bounce posted a photo of Kanye with a mute button and the hashtag ‘MuteKanye’ along with the following comment to Facebook and Instagram:
We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that “slavery was a choice.” We are over it. We don’t want to hear Kanye’s music, we don’t want to play Kanye on our show, we don’t want to talk about Kanye anymore. So we are taking a stand and we aren’t playing his music anymore; we just are refusing to give him a platform.
Shay Shay also commented on Kanye’s comments about Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X being too far in the past to be relatable.
“As an educator, as someone who works with young kids … he has a huge platform, OK?” she said on the air. “I just think that’s reckless. I think when you have such a huge platform like that, to use it in a reckless way, I mean, you’re basically saying history is irrelevant.”

Bigg told the Detroit News that the decision was made because of a massive reaction by listeners.
“In my 20-year radio career, this is one of the largest responses I’ve ever seen; the largest reaction on The Bounce, too,” Bigg said. “It’s very overwhelming right now. I’m just trying to keep up. Lots of people in support, but the people that aren’t are taking personal jabs. Weird.”
It’s not just one radio station, he’s taking hits from his hip-hop colleagues.
First, 50 Cent posted a photoshopped version of a Vogue cover showing Kanye embracing a wedding-dress wearing Donald Trump instead of Kim.
It received over 550K likes and thousands of comments before it was removed.
One video was captioned, ‘P.SA. for Uncle Tom’.
He then added this photo of Kanye as a white man saying that he’s ‘all white now’.
(Sounds a bit racist, if you ask me.)
The same photo was shared by 50 Cent and commented on by Jamie Foxx.

Looks like there are some folks out there that don’t agree with Kanye’s idea that people can think freely.
They want him right back in lock-step with them… or else.
There’s just one problem with that…
“Now that I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is. I have seen hundreds of escaped slaves but I never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave” -Harriet Tubman
I’ve seen black liberals go conservative, but never seen a black conservative go liberal.

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Ladies, get yours here.
