Over the weekend, while wearing a Make America Great Again hat, which he called a “Superman Cape,” Kanye West followed up his final performance on Saturday Night Live with another epic rant targeting the media, musicians, and performers, claiming 90% of them are liberals. Although the performance was cut from the show, many of the fans in attendance, including the comedian Chris Rock, recorded and posted the rant on social media.
Following the show, West tweeted this in response to his non-televised rant on SNL.
Shortly after West’s aforementioned post, actor Chris Evan, had this to say:
There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying. https://t.co/4jCFwB4T5U

Actor Josh Gad, star of Frozen, tweeted this in support of Evans, “Yes to everything.”
Unlike Evans and Gad, fellow rapper and producer Swizz Beatz had a different message for West. In response to Ye claiming everyone was picking on him, Beatz felt the need to set the record straight.
Singer Lana Del Rey, who once performed at Kanye and Kim’s rehearsal dinner, had some rather harsh words for the Atlanta rapper.
“I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism—none of which would be a talking point if we weren’t speaking about the man leading our country. If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the p—- just because he’s famous then you need an intervention as much as he does—something so many narcissists will never get because there just isn’t enough help for the issue. Message sent with concern that will never be addressed.”
The Roots’ Questlove had this to say:
Lol y’all so heartbroken, we ain’t even typing his name

At this point, Kanye has yet to respond to Evans, Swizz Beatz, or Del Ray publically but he did state yesterday that he’ll explain his actions and comments on TMZ Live today. Stay tuned for more!

10 Unbelievable Things That Actually Came Out Of Kanye West’s Mouth
“I don’t even listen to rap. My apartment is too nice to listen to rap in.” – Source
Kanye West will claim that he is the best rapper on the planet, but would still separate himself from the entire genre and put it down by stating that he does not listen to any other artists. This is furthered by claiming that his apartment is too nice for him to listen to rap in, suggesting that he feels that rap music is dirty and not appropriate for those that have wealth. Not only does he disrespect and separate himself from a genre that he is a part of, he then claims that there are certain conditions where the music can and can’t be listened to. This disconnects millions of listeners and creates further divides within the music industry.
