DJ AND ‘THE ROOTS’ DRUMMER QUESTLOVE TALKS KANYE WEST’S CONTROVERSIAL PRO-TRUMP TWEETS!
DJ and ‘The Roots’ drummer Questlove sat down with Buzz Feed News and talks Kanye West fiery pro-Trump tweets after a long Twitter hiatus. Check out a few of Kanye’s controversial tweets.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone,” he continues with “I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”
Questlove expressed his feelings on Ye’s tweets, which pretty much sums up a lot of peoples thoughts after reading them.
“Him embracing a president that embraces white supremacy, and I don’t know,” Questlove said. “I can’t, which is words like… ‘I just can’t’ or these cliche words that you see people use all the time, but…not like this.”
He continued, “I can’t. Twitter is losing their mind. For the first time yesterday, I thought I was done, and I went to sleep before midnight. Yeah, I don’t like what I’m seeing.”
This week was super strange for the social media world. I hope this isn’t a marketing ploy to promote these albums he’s a part of, because if not, he’ll have a lot of issues moving forward.
