Things took a disastrous turn when the Gold Digger hit maker got booed while on the iconic SNL (Saturday Night Live) stage. The 41-year-old took to the stage three times during SNL’s season 44 premiere episode. Read more to find out what went down!
So what happened?
On the first appearance, Kanye performed his latest song I Love It, with mumble-rap sensation Lil Pump where they dressed up as water bottles. The madness continued when Kanye was seen sporting a red “Make America Great Again “ cap. Kanye’s night took a nosedive when he gave a politically-charged speech, some of which was cut short from the broadcast.
“I wanna cry right now, black man in America, supposed to keep what you’re feelin’ inside right now,” Kanye sang. He then said, “The blacks want always Democrats. You know, it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan.”
Make America Great Again
“It’s so many times that I talk to like, a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now. If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all they policies,” the rapper said.
He noted his intent to run for office himself in 2020 and said, “We need to have a dialogue and not a diatribe.”
Chris Rock was in attendance and decided to film a part of Kanye’s televised demise and posted it on his Instagram story.
The only question now is: what will Kanye do next?
