Celebrities are pouring in with their criticisms after Kanye West’s elaborate pro-Trump SNL sketch and opinions on the 13th Amendment.
After his performance on SNL, West tweeted out a picture of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat, writing, “This represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”
The 13th amendment to the United States Constitution states, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”
After West’s SNL appearance, Trump also tweeted out, “Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!”
In response, Chris Evans said, “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.”
Josh Gad, in agreement with Evans, wrote, “Yes to everything.”
Lana Del Rey also chimed in with her own opinion on a photo West posted to Instagram, writing:
“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**sy 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.”
In response, West tweeted out, “The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals.”
West has not yet replied to Evan and Del Ray’s comments.
