Trevor Noah has given Kanye West a tongue lashing of note over comments that the rapper made about black Americans being “brainwashed” to vote in the way they do
Kanye came under fire after he made the comments during a radio interview earlier this week. He said that black people’s decisions were fuelled by promises of welfare benefits.
“We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting Democrats with food stamps for years,” Kanye said.
The rapper also threw shade at the hip-hop industry and the culture it promoted.
“The culture has you so focused on f*cking somebody else’s b*tch and pulling up in a foreign car and rapping about things that can get you locked up and then saying you about prison reform… C’mon, man. This a free man talking.”
Trevor who is never shy to share his opinions, heard the interview and gave Kanye a piece of his mind on a segment of Between The Scenes
“I was watching that, and I was like: Are you shitting me? Like, of all people. I’m not saying everything he’s saying is wrong, but you are going to say it? You, as Kanye West, are gonna talk sh*t about other rappers talking about buying ‘foreign’?” Trevor said.
Trevor then questioned Kanyer’s political views.
“What is more likely? The fact that these people are brainwashed, or the fact that, in America, you have to vote for the system that gives you the best chance? You may not even like all of the Democrat positions, but you’re like, ‘Yeah I’m voting for my best shot’,” he added.
