Last night, Kanye West was booed at his concert in San Jose after making a big political confession.
He told the crowd, "I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?… But if I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump.” One of Kanye's fans captured a part of his political discussion, watch!
Kanye went on to perform “Heartless” for a few seconds before continuing his rant. He pointed out, "I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and y’all sang it at the top of y’all lungs. That doesn’t mean that you’re a Trump supporter. That just means you okay with a celebrity having their own opinion — or that someone else is okay to have their own opinion. That might not be your opinion and you can still like that person or still like that person’s music.”
West also complained about the issue of racism in the election. "Black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, okay? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a f**king fact. We are in a racist country. Period.”
Though he would have voted for Trump, West wanted to make a few things clear. "That don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage.”
During the concert, Kanye also commented on Dave Chappelle’s recent monologue about the election on “Saturday Night Live.” Last weekend, Chappelle said, “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck and I’m going to give him a chance and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one, too.” Kanye shared, "Dave Chappelle, it’s okay. We can have opinions as celebrities. I know you said we couldn’t, but thank you for breaking the ice on the mentality of a generation.”
Kanye isn’t the only celebrity to state support for Trump after the election — Paris Hilton also admitted she voted for the billionaire, who she’s known her whole life, on an Australian talk show. Watch!
