It seems as though Kanye West can not stay away from criticism, with thousands of fans showing their disapproval for his decision to support Donald Trump and recent political tweets, with the latest being him saying 400 years of slavery was a choice by slaves.

"I disagree with it emphatically, you dig what I'm saying?"

West made the controversial comment about slavery to TMZ yesterday.

Lathan went on to add that since black Americans all don't live in an isolated community like Calabasas, as West and the Kardashian clan does, West doesn't have the right to make "cultural rules" he doesn't adhere to himself.

They came during an interview with TMZ, when he turned his attention to the history of black slavery.

"So I understand the need to have free thought, but if your thoughts aren't researched, that is just going to hurt those that are still in conditions where it's not choice".

"'Man, my subconscious spoke to my conscious and it just moved me to wear the hat.'" West reportedly said of his decision to wear the hat.

They argue that those still in jail should be transferred to prisons closer to home, rather than kept hundreds of kilometers away. A spokesman for the Basque regional government told the AP that it received ETA's letter "a few days earlier".

What Minister Simon Harris was told ahead of Vicky Phelan case
In all, some 1,400 women developed cervical cancer after previously testing negative in smear tests during the 2010-2014 period. Health Minister Simon Harris was advised to acknowledge the 'severe distress of Vicky Phelan after the case was settled.

"While you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you've earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives", Lathan told him during TMZ Live.

Feminist writer Roxane Gay tweeted, "I don't have the energy for nonsense but Kanye ... is a free moron who doesn't read".

"You know, he never called me to apologize", West said, explaining that Obama had met him and his mother before being elected president. Kanye is the type of person that if you tell not to do something, he's going to go at it even harder.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years - for 400 years?!" No one else was gonna speak up. "Thank You @VanLathan #TMZ". "News, politics, and pop-culture are all on the menu, with reality so sizzling it'll fry your echo chamber".

"'Imagine what a white supremacist would do if they saw me wearing it, they'd want me to take it off, '" he added, according to Tip. Prison unites us as one race...

At this point, there are 3,056 supporters out of a goal of 10,000. His Twitter following has grown, naturally, and he's been retweeting and replying to some of the attention.

Filmmaker Matthew Cherry thanked Lathan for stepping in.
