After slave remarks, Kanye compares himself to Harriet Tubman, Nat Turner

"It ain't but maybe one percent of the population of the Earth who speak the language of Kanye West. The People", West's latest hot-button statements, and more. "For 400 years? That sounds like a choice", Kanye remarked to TMZ.

The "Whatever You Like" rapper reiterated his point in an interview with The Breakfast Club on Wednesday, saying, "I think he's a phenomenal talent of our generation that deserves to be heard and considered, no matter how preposterous it may be".

"The message that I was trying to put together with the song was directed to Kanye.I'm at a loss of words", he said.

Journalist Phili Mwaniki tweeted in support of Lathan: "Years from now", people will ask, "Where were you when this dude shut Kanye up?"

"We're mentally in prison". "That broke my heart", Will.i.am said.

He further claimed he was "being attacked for presenting new ideas".

The shocking confrontation immediately resonated with people on social media.

Trump to meet crew of deadly Southwest Airlines flight
In the week following the investigation, Southwest Airlines canceled flights to perform engine inspection. Southwest apologized for the incident and gave money and travel vouchers to passengers on the flight.

"And my grandmother's grandma, who was a slave".

He added: 'When you're a slave, you don't choose if you're owned. You don't chose to be owned. When you're a slave you are deprived of education. That's not choice, that's by force.

In a separate interview with radio host Charlamagne tha God, West said he had not followed Trump's policies but, "When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that".

He back-pedalled feverishly as stars including Will.i.am mauled the rapper for his controversial comments.

"That's not Kanye", he said.

"Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and, brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that's not real", Van finished.

After Kanye shouts out: "Do you feel that I'm feeling... that I'm being free, and I'm thinking free?" "And I don't like talking about going against my community, but that is harmful". "I wouldn't throw my ancestors under the bus to profit". #IfSlaveryWasAChoice was the No. 1 trend on Twitter last night, and Kanye's comments were dissected throughout the evening by cable news networks, political pundits, and shell-shocked fans alike.
