Kanye West apologizes for saying slavery was ‘a choice’
Is it time to forgive Kanye West? This week, the polarizing musical artist and fashion icon appeared on WGCI 107.5 FM radio in his hometown of Chicago and cleared the air. Most notably, West addressed his comments on TMZ back in May that slavery was a “choice,” as well as his undying support for President Donald Trump. “I don’t know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel, so I want to take this moment right now to say that I’m sorry for hurting, I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA [Make America Great Again] hat into the slave comment,” West said during the WGCI broadcast. “And I’m sorry for people who felt let down by that moment, and also I appreciate you guys giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through and what led me to that.” West was forthright, which is certainly commendable, but there’s a much longer list of things for which he still needs to apologize. This probably sounds like a broken record, but we miss the old Kanye … like forreal.
