White Celebs Attack Kanye West For His Pro-Trump SNL Speech

Kanye West – or “Ye” as he now wants to be known – is burning up social media today after his appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” where he wore a MAGA hat and railed against his critics. Apparently, lots of white celebrities didn’t like it.

As the show ended, West revealed that SNL producers tried to convince him not to wear the hat, and then called for more free thinking. Viewers never saw that, however, as NBC cut off the live feed.

“They bullied me backstage. They said, ‘don’t go out there with that hat on. They bullied me backstage. They bullied me! And then they say I’m in a sunken place,” West said to close the show. “You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to ya’ll now — or I’ma put my Superman cape on, cuz this means you can’t tell me what to do. Follow your heart and stop following your mind. That’s how we’re controlled. That’s how we’re programmed. If you want the world to move forward, try love.”

He later tweeted out a statement stating what the MAGA hat represents. He also called for the abolition of the 13th Amendment, but did not explain why.

President Trump responded to Kanye’s performance. “Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!”

Captain America himself (or Chris Evans rather) started off the white privilege parade with a tweet questioning West’s intelligence. “There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue,” he tweeted. “The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying.

Actor Brandon Routh, who once stood for truth, justice, and the American Way when he played Superman, blasted West for not staying in his lane.

“Advice of the day: stop following Kanye West. He’s a constant contradiction,” he tweeted. “The fact that he has 28 million followers…Might do well to clear your headspace of his incoherence.

Many more “blue check” white celebrities were more than happy to chime in and attack West.

Emma Vigeland, a liberal writer for the left-wing site The Young Turks, called West a “troll” and an “idiot.”

Others simply mocked his stance as merely a publicity stunt.

Kanye has yet to respond directly to anyone over the attacks.
