Kanye West comes out as anti-abortion, anti-Plan B & anti-Democratic Party

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West cause a frenzy in Midtown as they head to a souvenir shop in New York

Kanye West ended up releasing his new album, Jesus Is King, on Friday. It was supposed to come out on midnight Thursday night/Friday morning, but Kanye skipped that… and then released it in the afternoon/early evening. If that seems half-assed, it’s because it was. Jesus Is King is only 27 minutes long and there are widespread complaints that the music feels unfinished. Kanye has also been telling people that he’s not going to perform any of his old stuff, even though no one likes this new Gospel of Ye stuff. He thinks he’s too holy to perform his old bops now, and he says that if he does perform any of the old stuff, he would change the lyrics away to reflect his new godly persona.

Speaking of, as part of the promotion, Kanye sat down for yet another interview and he sounds like g-ddamn Pat Robertson now. Kanye is now anti-choice and anti-Democrat. He spoke to Big Boy (a radio host) and MAGA Yeezus dropped this quote:

“Bro, we brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, this is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting Democrat for food stamps for years, bro. What you talking about? Guns in the ‘80s, taking the fathers out of the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children, gosh now they’re killed…. I can’t tell y’all how to feel. But what I can tell you honestly is how I feel.”

“Making us abort our children” – come again? Democrats are not forcing anyone to have an abortion. “Plan B” – dafaq? Plan B the emergency contraception which is used in cases of “the condom broke” or “I was raped”? That’s Kanye’s proof of a Democratic Party conspiracy? Look, obviously Kanye had been canceled years ago. As soon as he put the MAGA hat on, it was over. But it’s still painful to watch this sh-t, his new persona as a “evangelical preacher” who hates sinful women’s bodies and their reproductive choices.

PS… Please don’t put this on Kim. Kanye is a grown-ass man with mental health issues. She’s not responsible for everything he says. Kim is pro-choice and she’s used the reality show to raise money and awareness for reproductive choice. Yell at her for helping him promote this bulls–t, sure. But don’t paint her with the same anti-choice brush.

      Can I get an A-men for that comment!!! 👏👏

    • Marisse says:

      It’s obvious he has been taking his meds how HE wants & not psychiatrist orders for everyday like ANY individual battling Bipolar Disorder

      He’s really gone off the deep end in a BIG way. I’m worried he could eventually harm his kids. He is clearly unstable & on/off his meds. I’ve seen the signs & know them all too well.

      • Ken says:

        Don’t worry about the kids. I am sure kardashian lawyers have all the paper work drawn up for full kardadashian kustody: “Your honor, mr west cannot be trusted to take his medication ….”

    • Lisa says:

      he’s high…on something, not sure what…but he’s not well at all.

    • Enn says:

      Lala I just hollered 😂😂😂

      • smcollins says:

        I was literally thinking “careful what you wish for” with Kim hitching her wagon to his. He’s obviously extremely unwell, and that absolutely is not her fault, but her remaining silent and seemingly turning a blind eye is not a good look.

    • TQB says:

      Counterpoint: that she attempts to cope with and love this guy makes me sympathetic towards her, which is a thing I NEVER thought i’d say.

      • Ashipper says:

        I agree with you. My husband has bipolar disorder and, luckily it has been managed very well for our 27 years of marriage. There have been two episodes where it wasn’t and it was hell. I don’t envy her. At least my husband wants to be on his meds.

    • Christina says:

      Oh yeah!!

    • susiecue says:

      I love this comment!!!!

  3. Enn says:

    Here’s what I’m going to put on Kim: if my husband had voted for or publicly supported Trump, my marriage would be over. This is not hyperbole. Because I would know that our values were so wildly different as to make us incompatible as partners.

    Kanye is out of control and speeding towards…something. I don’t think death, but likely a full psychotic break.

    • serena says:

      ^^^^ All of this.

    • Jocey says:

      Yep. That or this recent anti-choice/pro-controlling/shaming-women’s-bodies bullshit would be the end for me because a big part of why I choose to be with my husband is that he is pro-choice and supports access to all reproductive healthcare, including abortion.

    • stepup says:

      Yes! Remaining married to, or friends with, a MAGA is enabling MAGA.

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      I am a firm believer that people with differing ideas, ideals, and opinions can have real, meaningful relationships/friendships. My husband and I see differently on many topics. However, that being said, when your partner’s values are so diametrically opposed to everything you supposedly believe in, and you choose to stay with that person, I side eye TF out of you… especially in this current socio-political climate when we NEED people to be advocates.

      • escondista says:

        THIS! @Agirlandherdog

        If I divorced every family member and friend from my life because we had political differences, i would be an extremely lonely person living in an echo chamber.

        People are allowed to exist in my life and I am permitted to love them even if we do not agree. Some of my family members consider abortion murder, this is a black and white issue to them and extenuating circumstances of later life care and well-being do not matter to them. It is just murder to them.

        What is happening to Kanye sounds like a different thing. It sounds like severe mental illness… and I feel the same about the president (though i don’t excuse EITHER of them). My friends and family that support certain politics have not formed churches or started preaching to others about their beliefs 80 times a day on Twitter.
        Kim can decide what she will put up with and invite into her life but this is not just “Kanye supports president trump and now, personally, feels strongly about conservative values.” This is someone who is, and has for a long time seemed, mentally unwell.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Exactly. I have always welcomed everyone. I love diversity. How boring if everyone I knew only ever agreed with me. That’s the spice. That’s the get-togethers. But in 2016, for the first time in my life, I drew a line. I couldn’t walk out on family members, but if my diplomacy inspired or rubbed off, it’s best you understand me on this particular front. I will not be a part of this topic. And if anyone ever cared about what I thought, they best illustrate a modicum of disbelief lol.

      • Veronica S says:

        Yeah, there’s a world of difference between “we don’t agree on this” versus “my partner supports a corrupt fascist government who wants to take away the rights of women and minorities.”

      • MC2 says:

        This is a great point. Differing opinions & perspectives is great, and I welcome them, but if your values are inherently opposing to mine (ie things like equality), then you can stay on your island & I won’t be visiting.

    • lucy2 says:

      Same here. Especially with the public support. I realize he’s not well and maybe she feels like she can’t leave him now, but sooner or later there’s going to be a breaking point.
      TBH I doubt he even believes half the stuff he’s saying right now, he seems very manic and spiraling.

    • Marian E. Bayusik says:

      Sadly, I suspect that Kanye will become absolutely convinced he’s Jesus, if he has a break down. That tends to be the next step with cults.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Agree Enn. Unless Kim knows that Kanye is not right in the head these days and when on his meds doesn’t believe all of this MAGA bs?

    • TQB says:

      In general, yes, except – I think there’s a strong chance here that he is so disabled at this point that it’s hard to say what he truly “believes.” He has a mental illness and is clearly prone to saying all manner of things. Probably a non-famous person with this level of illness would be hospitalized – or at least no one would sit down for an “interview” with him.

    • Wendy says:

      Here’s the thought that always pops up in the back of my mind when people start talking about how she should leave him:

      They have 4 kids together. If she leaves him, is there a guarantee that he won’t be granted shared custody of those children? If she leaves him and he gets shared custody, does she have a legal leg to stand on re: controlling what he says and does around those children? does she have a better position to protect her children by staying legally bound to him?

      I truly don’t know, as I’m not well versed in the intricacies of California divorce law and child custody issues. Is anyone here who can speak credibly to those issues?

    • Sue says:


  4. Elizabeth says:

    Kim may be pro choice. Fine. She has absolutely given Trump cover by working with him and praising him for helping her. And that’s a huge issue. We can’t normalize or praise monsters like Trump.

    He just won a stupid award for criminal justice from a bipartisan commission (hence his appearance at a HBCU). He’s trying to coopt and defang the resistance, and hobble the black vote, and Kanye AND KIM are helping him do that.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yes, exactly. Kim helped to normalize Trump for some people and she deserves to be dragged for that. That’s great that she’s pro-choice, but at this point, that’s not enough .

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Yes, and it’s because she’s rich enough for all of it not to really matter.

        Fix the tax code.

    • ME says:

      Exactly plus if she were appalled or concerned by Trump she’d use her social media presence to raise awareness for some of his atrocities. She is no different than any other millionaire that is getting a lot out of Trump to the detriment of our country.

    • sunny says:

      Applause- this so much. This is a woman who fetishizes black people and has made her family’s fortune in part by exploiting people of colour. She has normalized Trump in the past.

      Kayne is terrible- he has always been terrible(which kills me bc I think he is truly brilliant). I hope he gets help because mental illness is tough.

      More than that though I hope their kids are ok.

  5. Megan2 says:

    I bigly dislike this ignorant, hypocritical, shallow POS. Is this his televangelist cadence?

  6. serena says:

    Surprise surprise.. said none. I don’t like the ‘cancelled’ culture but Kanye doesn’t deserve attention and surely not my respect, so yeah he’s cancelled.
    I understand he has a mental illness (and judging by his rambling it’s getting worse), but I’m not gonna justify him because of that. I have enough of his BS.
    And I don’t put it on Kim but I wish she’d open her eyes and dump his ass.

    • Erinn says:

      I think there’s a difference between cancel culture… and ‘ignore culture’? haha. I know what you mean though – the whole goal should be that people will eventually learn and change their behavior, and not be forever canceled despite growth.

      But I do think it’s completely valid to basically ignore them until they put the work in. The less attention the better until they can prove that they’re going to try to be a better person. And right now, I think Kanye is in need of some MAJOR ignoring. I suspect that … similar to a kid throwing a tantrum if we ignore him long enough he’ll get bored and move on to the next thing.

      • serena says:

        You’re right, I really wanna ignore him, but then I read these news and I’m overcome with rage at how someone with so much following (still) can be so ignorant and spill so much bs on such important topics.

        He thinks he’s a new messiah but he’s basically just parroting Trump at this point?


    • A says:

      Someone once said that “cancel culture” should have just been called “accountability culture” to begin with, and I agree. If people do something wrong, what, do you think, is the best way to hold them accountable? And who gets to decide what accountability is? The victims of said individual, or people who are mostly just tired of being told that the celebs they like happen to have done bad things?

  7. Jess says:

    Jesus, I hope people realize he’s not mentally stable and don’t start to believe the bullshit he’s spewing. I actually feel bad for Kim, I can’t imagine what she deals with behind the scenes, it’s like his entire personality flipped.

  8. Kittycat says:

    So sad

  9. Kanye is a karefully kultivated kard karrying member of the Koven.
    I agree they got more then they bargained for as this has unfolded over the years, but you don’t get Met invites and Vogue covers without giving the devil his due.
    Kim got respectable, Kendall got a career and Kylie got a make up empire while Mom gets her percentage.

  10. Ye says:

    I just came out as anti Kanye. And damnit, I loved his music. Byebye.

  11. Elizabeth says:

    Lest we forget this is also a man accused of sexual harassment or rape by what is it now, 34 women? The man who locked up little children in cages, ripped them from their parents, exposed them to sexual abuse. It doesn’t require any thought if you have an ounce of morality! Don’t give him cover. It is so frustrating that Kim would decide she wanted to align with him even for a good cause.

    Ava DuVernay is committed to prison reform, and was long before Kim, and somehow it doesn’t require her to work with or praise a monster.

  12. Mousy says:

    Yeah im pretty sure Kim and co featured planned parenthood on their show in at least one episode so that is ONE thing you cant blame her for. As for enabling his public meltdown/attention grabs – They definitely play a role in that

  13. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    Dude’s starting a cult right before our eyes. Last decade, I loved his music. This decade, I can’t stand even seeing his photos pop up.

    • HK9 says:

      Bingo! And people are falling for this left and right. It’s only going to be a matter of time before it’s going to be give up all your money/time/talents blah blah….I feel a train wreck coming on.

    • Bonita says:

      THIS!!! Thank you!

  14. Lizzie says:

    says a man who paid a surrogate to bear two of his children. in my opinion – being pro fertility treatments and surrogacy and anti abortion is so illogical my head could explode.

    it is ok to use medical treatments to make your own reproductive choices but other people don’t get to….typical anti-abortion BS. anti-choice is is really just pro control over women’s bodies.

    • Teebee says:

      Incredibly insightful point.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Lizzie…co-sign on all of this. Surrogacy is still comodifying women’s bodies. Nearly always involving a socioeconomic disparity. It makes me uneasy. I don’t oppose it just as I don’t oppose any informed adult choices about one’s own body, but that’s the rub. No picking and choosing when we legislate what adult women do with their own bodies.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Right, many fundamentalist Christians (as Kanye is now going all in on) reject any kind of assisted reproduction.
      But I’m sure for Kanye’s own life, anything goes, that’s always the way with religious hypocrites.

    • prettypersuasion says:

      came here to make this comment myself. I will never understand Christians who are pro-infertility treatments but anti-abortion. It’s like my pastor dad who “doesn’t trust scientists” about climate change, evolution, carbon dating, etc. yet uses modern medicine. Mental gymnasts, all of them.

    • Elisa says:

      very well said, Lizzie.

    • lucy2 says:

      Excellent point. He’s not thinking logically at all, obviously.

    • Raluca says:

      That’s so right! It’s there, in the Handmaid’s Tale territory.

  15. undergalaxy says:

    I’m anti his entire ugly face, ugly attitude, and entire lack of talent.

  16. Mrs. Peel says:

    Can”t Kim just slip him his meds in his morning smoothie or something?

  17. Marysia says:

    But it’ ok for him to have in vitro children… and still he wants to impose rules to others…

  18. Who ARE These People? says:

    Will Brad Pitt continue to find him cool and interesting?

  19. CoffeeWench says:

    Dude needs to get back on his meds. I’m not saying that because he’s saying things I do not agree with, but because of the way he’s acting.

    I know his kids probably get raised by nannies, but at least for their sake, Kanye needs to get back on bipolar meds. Jeeze.

    • Elisa says:

      Isn`t Britney bipolar as well? I find it interesting
      a) how her family / ex-partner handled her illness compared to Kayne’s family
      b) how the media reacts to their illness. IMO with Britney it was the poor fragile girl narrative whereas Kayne is still portrayed as an unstable genius.

  20. BlueSky says:

    Just another useful idiot for the alt right, MAGA crowd. I’m putting on my tin foil hat to say that the GOP, MAGA crowd will do the most to suppress the black vote. If they can’t convince black people to vote for The Cheeto Emperor, then they are going to do the most to muddy the waters to convince us not to vote Democrat. I’ve had white people use the old “look at economy” angle as their argument in supporting this POS.
    Black people don’t always have to be on the same page when it comes to certain issues but I absolutely refuse to support someone who capes for someone who is openly is racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and misogynistic.

  21. lassie says:

    Practically speaking, who is the audience for his music now? His old fans are not going to be pleased with the prophet Kanye, and the Trump evangelicals won’t get behind his materialism and his porn star wife.

  22. HK9 says:

    This will not end well.

  23. Joy says:

    He is so unstable. But he’s a rich creative genius or something so it’s fine. If he was Kanye West, Walmart worker he would long ago have been locked up.

  24. Murphy says:

    Is Anti-Abortion the same as Pro-Life? Cuz I’m Pro-Choice to the moon and back but would still also classify myself as anti-abortion (I wish people didn’t have to have abortions but acknowledge that sometimes they do (and would never try to block anyone from one))

    • Enn says:

      If you would not have an abortion yourself but accept and support that everyone else is free to do what is best for them, then you are pro-choice.

      Sex education and access to birth control are large factors in lower abortion rates.

  25. isadora says:

    Much like Twitler Kanye starting his own cult. That worries me. America has a long and bloody track record when it comes to cults. He’s mentally unstable that much is clear to me. I very much hope that it doesn’t leads to him doing something drastic and dangerous that people getting hurt or die.

  26. KKC says:

    I’m somewhat convinced Kris and Kim intentionally encourage Ye to stay off his meds, as his manic episodes keep him out of Kris’ house where they all still live (no way anyone is living in his grim mausoleum money pit) AND helps cultivate a public record history of him being a complete lunatic for the future divorce storyline.

    Which in no way excuses a grown adult of not taking care of their own mental health, to be clear. But I have some empathy for everyone involved. And at the end of the day the Kardashian’s are very clear about who they are and what they bring to the table, so I will always applaud their succubi ways to the trash men who trifle with them.

  27. Hanahk says:

    He needs to be on medication, you can see it in his eyes. Kim recently said he’s off it and “they deal with it together” or something like that. If she’s supporting his choice to not take meds while he has that look in his eye and those words coming from his mouth, I’d say she is partly responsible. She is probably enjoying the continued attention. This is dangerous he needs help.

  28. dumbledork says:

    She stood next to him smiling at that stupid art show where he took the likeliness, without their permission, of several women and put them next to a convicted rapist. I kinda do judge her. She’s not without agency. She had 2 more kids with this piece of shit since that time. So yeah, I do judge her as I do him. They’re both losers.

  29. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    Ugh. He needs to stop. He just dives into his next big thing without taking a breath to really think about or understand the deeper issues. I don’t know if it’s his mental health or personality, but he keeps on these rants with no real understanding (or at least he’s not explaining his reasoning) for any of the views that he is expounding. And, yes, all of his views seem to come back to wanting control over what women do with their bodies, which is the low-hanging fruit to peg all society’s ills on.

    • ME says:

      The reasoning is pr. Every time he has something to promote he goes on a “rant”. It’s very calculated.

      • ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

        If you are right, it’s actually WORSE if it’s calculated because that means he could choose to rant on literally a million things that are wrong with this world but CHOOSES misogyny by focusing on telling women that it’s their fault if he can’t keep it in his pants because of their sexy clothes and they shouldn’t have abortions. This makes my head pop off my head and spin around.

  30. Mignionette says:

    Yet uses a Surrogate to birth two of his children.

    Classic case of rich people saying ‘do as I say and not as I do’. Classic Trump-ism/ Rep party rhetoric and oh so Handmaid’s Tale…

    • ME says:

      He should tell his wife to stop accepting those monthly checks she gets for the tape she did with Ray-J. She still profits off that tape…doesn’t that bother him? Isn’t that “dirty money”? He needs to eff off.

  31. Jen says:

    I appreciate the point about not putting it on Kim, but in 2016 she initially said she was “on the fence” about Trump vs. Hillary. After she said that, she faced a huge backlash and came out pro-Hillary. So I think it’s fair to question what her beliefs are and when she’s just saying what is best for her brand.

  32. ReginaGeorge says:

    So did Jesus approve of making “designer” children? Didn’t they choose the sex of a few of their children? Wouldn’t IVF fall under not leaving it up to God to decide? Not IMO obviously, but I’ve heard some really religious folks condemn IVF and having a bunch of “pre-babies” frozen in limbo. He’s such a hypocrite.

  33. Nicegirl says:

    Maga Yeezus is a hilarious moniker.

  34. Anilehcim says:

    Once he falls out of favor with the general public, and I believe that he’s really going to push it too far and it will happen eventually, Kim is gonna divorce him so fast his head will spin. In the meantime, she can’t, because it’s only thanks to him that her entire family has ever been taken seriously in the circles they were so desperate to be a part of.

    Kanye is in dire need of help. He is going to become unbearably controlling and his new “righteous” path will never fit in with her family’s brand of basing their worth around their appeal to the male gaze and their sex appeal.

    Regardless of how I feel about anyone in the K Klan, I’m not here for any man who tries to throw a fit and guilt his wife for her appearance by telling her that her sexiness “hurts his feelings.”

  35. Tiffany :) says:

    He’s been so problematic for so long, but I can’t help but be concerned. This is a man who has publicly broadcast that he has a mental illness and is no longer taking his medication. The things he’s saying are clearly right wing talking points. I’m concerned about who’s been allowed to get close to him.

  36. Allergy says:


  37. Grey says:

    He was at the Forum on the weekend, they were promoting him on their Instagram stories. He did perform old music, but only “religious” songs like Ultralight Beam, and Jesus Walks. Oh, and was selling Sunday Service sweaters for $250.

    • Hoot says:

      …and those sweaters would be church-related sales so any taxes he’d owe on their sales would be tax-exempt [fall under 501(c) (3) organization status], right? Lol, Kanye isn’t stupid – or he surrounds himself with people who aren’t. He’s laughing all the way to the bank.

      Sheesh, his whole concert could be a tax write-off based upon the music he played.

  38. Nic919 says:

    Part of me can’t stand kanye and his stupid comments and the other part of me feels bad for him. My grandmother was bipolar and the times she went off her meds she would say dumb things and look to start fights with family, which became public. It was not an easy time and so I have to sympathize a bit with Kim here. That said the people who care for Kanye need to get him back on his meds because it won’t get any better until that happens.

  39. ME says:

    Kanye has admitted to NEVER voting ever. He needs to sh*t the f*ck up. How does he even get along with his wife? Then again I’m not sure if Kim is Democrat or Republican. This last election she publicly stated she wasn’t sure who she was going to vote for and she loves to say nice things about Trump so who knows…maybe she is a closeted Republican and this is how their marriage stays working lol.

    • Lurkmode says:

      The Kardashian crew is most likely Republican. However, they can’t say that and keep their fan base, so they pretend not to know who they’re voting for.

      • Genessee says:

        Everyone needs to remember, Bruce Jenner was a lifelong Republican. He helped raise all the Kardashians and Jenner girls. Those older girls went to all-girl Catholic schools. It goes without saying that this family grew up with Republican/Conservative ideals not being a foreign concept to them. Not that there is anything wrong with that, because there IS a difference between Reagan/Bush Republicanism and the Evangelical/Tea Party Trumpism we have now. Yes, kids can and sometimes do have different political beliefs than their parents, but let’s get real. They most likely grew up hearing stuff that Kanye is now ranting about. Some of that sticks.

    • Jen says:

      I don’t think she has any affiliation as much as she is pro-Kim Kardashian. When she got backlash for the undecided comments, she was suddenly very pro-Hillary. When Kanye said something problematic, her impulse was that he was ruining their careers.

      • Anon33 says:

        @gennessee, speaking as a middle class catholic who went to catholic school for my entire education, and lives in one of the most Catholic cities in America, Catholics in my experience are largely socially conservative (and sometimes not even) but fiscally liberal, and generally vote democrat. Please don’t align us with evangelicals (we have our own problems, obviously.) I’m in no way religious and never even did communion or anything like that, just pointing out the inaccuracy. I actually can’t even believe I just defended Catholicism but hey, 2019…

    • Hoot says:

      Since Kri$ is in charge of this Koven, I’ve got to believe they all loooove their tax $ituation as republican$. It’s all about the dollar$ baby.

    • DSW says:

      Wasn’t he also raised middle class? So he has no experience voting Democrat, and he has probably never been on food stamps. SMDH.

  40. AnnaKist says:

    Kanye West anti all those issues? Well, there’s a surprise… 🙄 Him stuck in a “studio” “designing” very ugly and ultra-expensive “clotges” and shoes ost seem so bad now…
    *Apologies for the (necessary) inverted commas.

  41. Ang says:

    Anti Kanye all the way, and his new music is terrible, I don’t care what his views are and neither does anyone else. He’s crazy for sure to think he’s still “On” game any longer, he’s not. I wish the rest of the K group would follow him out.

  42. Tiffany says:

    You know what, it just upsets me to no end the ill informed preaching about Plan B.

    You dummies, Plan B is not a contraception. That is not what it is for. Just. Stop.

    This douchebag is raising my blood pressure with his dangerous rhetoric.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Plan B is a contraceptive. It is not an abortifacient. It’s emergency contraception and boy was I glad it was there (albeit expensive!) when I needed it.

      • Tiffany says:

        I guess contraception was used in the wrong context. He thinks that this is a form of standard birth control and it is not.

        And I feel you on it being needed Elizabeth. And where do I go to get mine, Planned Parenthood. I have been making donations every since my visit there.

    This new release is part and parcel of Trump’s election strategy. Kanye is not working independently on art here at all–he’s doing propaganda. His job is to weaken the Democratic Part with his drivel. He and Kim’s fortunes come from organized crime. It is in both of their interests to keep Trump in office.

    P.S. We need to stop diagnosing mental problems in both Kanye and Trump, and instead see them for the anti-democratic individuals they are.
    Each one of them is obsessed with fame and power, and willing to support fascism to stay on top.

    • ME says:

      You may be on to something. Kanye, just a few years ago, was posing with Hilary and supporting the Dems (though he never voted). He then declares he is “broke” and instantly turns and supports Republicans and Trump. He all of a sudden has a million dollars to donate to charity and is somehow funding these Sunday Services (that cost money). Also, the fact Kim is so easily invited to the White house. Many people have been working on Justice Reform long before Kim and have put in way more work than her, but she’s the one who Trump gives all the credit to. It’s like they made some sort of deal. “Ok dude I’ll support you but I want money and my wife wants publicity”. It does make you wonder.

      • Hoot says:

        Doesn’t make me wonder at all. Sunday services (and the rhetoric he’s currently spouting) = a combination of publicity, tax exempt status, write-offs, relates well with right wingers/support for MAGA/religious zealots …all beneficial to him and his family in one way or another.

      • Jules says:

        I must intervene to say that he is the largest shareholder of Adidas.Read the Forbest article explaining his wealth. Also, he has 50 Grammy nominations and sells his music to people like Scorsese who did the commercial for 2 films with Ye’s music.

      • Jules says:

        He doesn’t understand that his wife is beloved over him. If you hate them, the KarJenners- I’m sorry, but it’s totally true. She is worth 500million, that is half of her sister’s fortune, and she’s become very likable. She should get out next year. He was fragile and I credit her for loving him through it…but he is a buffoon now and it’s embarrassing for the family.

      “We need to stop diagnosing mental problems in both Kanye and Trump, and instead see them for the anti-democratic individuals they are.”

      The world didn’t diagnose Kanye as bipolar — a psychiatrist did. He has the disorder and refuses to take his medication. That isn’t my opinion, that’s fact.

      As someone who has bipolar disorder, I would hate it if people judged me solely on actions and statements made when I was in the throes of the disease. I don’t think Kanye truly believes half the stuff he says, deep down, but *right now* he does. Medication and therapy would go a long way in Kanye’s case. The same can’t be said for Trump.

      Yes, I’m going to diagnose Trump from afar. He’s a textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder. Unlike mood disorders, personality disorders can’t be “fixed” with medication. Personality disorders are basically *who a person is* — unless they go through serious long-term cognitive behavioral therapy. And people with NPD don’t do that because they believe everything else is the problem and they’re just victims of the world who don’t need to change.

      People with untreated, advanced mood disorders (especially bipolar, in which psychosis is not an uncommon occurrence) are often more susceptible to the influence of those with narcissistic, borderline, and/or antisocial personality disorder.

      I’m not absolving Kanye of his accountability. He’s a grown man who is responsible for his actions. But I believe that his biggest “sin” is refusing treatment for a worsening mental illness. If he would rectify that, then a lot of his behavior would change. What we as a society shouldn’t give a “pass” on is people who *willingly* let their mental illness rule their lives. That’s selfish and destructive, and it perpetuates the stigma of mental illness.

      Trump, on the other hand, will never change — he truly is who he is. And he is a horrible person. He’s not even technically “anti-democracy” — he’s just an unhinged narcissist with unimaginable power who believes the world revolves around the protection of his ego. He would be “anti-authoritarianism” if somehow that ideology challenged his carefully constructed fantasy world. He will do anything, no matter how vile and inhumane, as long as it serves his ego.

      To me, that’s even more dangerous than people who do vile, inhumane things in the service of something “bigger” than themselves.

  44. Tuntmore says:


    I have bipolar disorder and I haven’t missed a day of meds in the past 5 years since I was first diagnosed and found the right combo. I also did extensive therapy because meds can’t teach coping skills. I never ever ever want to go back to feeling like I did when I was untreated.

    I know creative bipolar types often don’t take their meds because they fear the loss of inspiration or whatever. Well, I’m a writer, and I am FAR more productive now than I was pre-diagnosis. Why do you think Van Gogh did his best, most profilic painting when he was institutionalized? Because there he was stable and could focus his energy. People with bipolar disorder have to learn to stop romanticizing the mood roller-coaster so they can see it as the destructive force that it truly is.

    And here’s the kicker: bipolar disorder is a progressive, degenerative disease that only gets worse the longer it’s left untreated. Each cycle damages the brain a little bit, making the next cycle worse, and so on. By the time I was diagnosed, I’d had bipolar disorder for 20 years, and the last few years were absolute hell, with rapid cycling and more intense reactions and breaks from reality.

    I loved pre-2016 Kanye so much. I had him pegged as a fellow bipolar sufferer long before it was known (I joke that I can “smell my own”). But even if I didn’t care for Kanye, it hurts my heart to see people ignore treatment and instead choose to suffer from what is a truly horrible illness.

    He’s a husband and father, and his family deserves someone who will take care of himself. There’s no excuse for a person of means in a First World country to continue living like Kanye does. My meds cost me $15 a month and my insurance pays for my psych visits. And I’m pretty sure Kanye has more money (and spare time for therapy) than I do. Seriously…no excuse.

    I miss the old Kanye, and I feel for the new Kanye. But if he doesn’t get his sh-t together, he has only himself to blame.

  45. Angela82 says:

    He is closing in on Donald Trump for title of worst human.

  46. Lurkmode says:

    “Bro, we brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, this is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting Democrat for food stamps for years, bro. What you talking about? Guns in the ‘80s, taking the fathers out of the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children, gosh now they’re killed…. I can’t tell y’all how to feel. But what I can tell you honestly is how I feel.”

    Kanye should not be cancelled because he’s MAGA. Kanye should be cancelled because this statement right here is anti-black. Whenever you hear a black person state they are “free”, they are a “free thinker,” etc., some anti-black rhetoric is about to follow. Kanye is relying on old anti-black tropes to tell his coveted white audience that he’s not a stupid…_____… like the rest of them. This is why many black people do not like or trust black republicans/conservatives, because they don’t like black people and they blame black people for why they are where they are in life.

    I wouldn’t blame Kim for any of Kanye’s outburts and behaviors. I think if Kanye continues on this path, he will divorce Kim and get himself a Ginni Thomas type …Kim’s image isn’t what Kanye is trying to project.

    I need for people to stop attributing Kanye’s statements to mental illness. He and Trump may be mentally ill, but that’s not why they are acting up. They’re both acting up like children because they want attention, like children. IMO it all boils down to Obama: Obama called him a jackass and paid him dust, and Trump gave him the attention and accolades he wanted; therefore Democrats are “bad” and MAGA is “good.”

  47. Lady says:

    This isn’t a dig on any Kardashian but they do seem to worship the deadly sins not the 10 commandments. How does he balance that with his gospel? Are some sins overlooked because of the mother of his children? He seems to have a foot in both worlds but he doesn’t seem genuine to me.

  48. N says:

    What’s disgusting is this man and his family seem to be highlighting his mental illness as a gimmick at this point.
    EVERYTHING is used for profit. What happens when he actually has a rock bottom or is this all a ludicrous act?

  49. Michael says:

    Kanye had better hope right wing evangelicals but his scrap because I will not be spending a domain his music or his shoes

  50. Ellie says:

    We’re dealing with a non medicated bi-polar individual who happens to be famous, and who unfortunately has a platform because of it. That’s just as dangerous as someone having an untreated disease, as they are able to ramble off anything, and it goes straight into the ears of thousands of fans who look up to him, including the youth.

  51. What. . .now? says:

    I smell a divorce in his future.

  52. JanetFerber says:

    This bastard! Divorce him, Kim!

  53. Jaded says:

    He is exhibiting signs of a Messiah complex, usually associated with bi-polar disorder and schizophrenia.

    “The Messiah Complex is a psychological state when a person believes that he or she is a savior today or he or she will be in the near future. This kind of psychological issue is usually acquired by patients who have schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. It is true that people can always be a savior. However, acting as the savior of the whole world is delusional and impossible.”

    This is not going to end well, most notably because he has so many sycophantic worshipers and the Kardashian Kult will protect him. Left basically uncontrolled he could very well become dangerous to himself and others.

  54. teehee says:


    And given his own track record!?!?!?!?!??!


  55. Unicorn Realist says:

    Doesnt look like Kanye. Looks like someone else. Jaw and face look different. He wont perform old songs because he isnt Kanye.

  56. JRenee says:

    All of this…I personally know young folks whose ideology is extremely different from his, who are not influenced by his God complex but still enjoy his music.
    He is spiraling further down the rabbit hole..

  57. Chelle says:

    I really think he thinks he’s a contrarian and, therefore, an intellectual but he’s neither. He’s not an intellectual nor a contrarian. What he is is reactive and probably stubborn. He might be one of those people who do the opposite thing just because you suggested it, or thinks you are trying to control them because you’ve suggested it or will take the opposite approach just to spite you. That’s not a good thing. It’s actually rather childish.

    • A says:

      Speaking as something of a contrarian who knows it’s born from stubbornness, I agree with this 100%. People truly mistake contrarian behaviour as something that signifies critical thinking skills. Well, jumping into a well when everyone tell you not to, just because you want to be a contrarian, hardly indicates a very intelligent interior, does it?

  58. A says:

    I find it really infantilizing how people treat Kanye and his diagnosis. His bigoted and sh-tty opinions aren’t a result of his bipolar disorder, ffs. There are plenty of people with bipolar disorder, just as there are plenty of people w/ other mental illnesses, who aren’t misogynistic, racist and Trump supporters. People have got to stop attributing these types of opinions onto mental illness. Kanye has always been a misogynist contrarian who only cares about his ego. Saying that his bad opinions are because of his mental illness is just a really convenient way to not examine why he has his bad opinions in the first place.

    • bub244 says:

      I totally agree with what you’re saying- people often blame racism on mental illness, or on dementia in Trump’s case. That’s going too easy on racists. However, I think kanye’s psychiatric diagnosis has some relevance here, as his comments stem at least in part from some overvalued ideas of himself as a saviour, the only one to speak the truth, etc. Kanye has bipolar disorder and is also quite misogynistic and anti-black.

  59. Abby says:

    My husband is bipolar and when he is manic, he becomes hyperfocused on religious sanctimony. He thinks he’s the most enlightened Christian on the planet and that his job is to coerce everyone else to believe and behave as he does. It’s very painful to watch Kanye spiral like this because I’ve lived it so many times, as recently as a month ago. My husband and I are separated but we still have three little kids together so I see him almost daily. When he’s manic (and doesn’t realize it nearly ever) my husband berates me endlessly for how much I need to put aside this separation and live “a holy life” married to him, our vows are forever, etc. It’s definitely a manifestation of mania for unmedicated Kanye (he told Letterman he’s not on any meds) to have this euphoric conversion experience. He’s living in a delusion and thinks he’s on a mission. My husband’s manic mission is to “save our marriage” and spiritually abuse me into doing it, all because his mania tells him in black and white terms that there is only one way. Plus their brains love opposition to a certain extent. My husband loves on some level to be resisted so he can dig in and fight and hyperfocus more. Kanye is oppositional in how he aligns himself with controversial figures and ideals. It’s definitely in some parts to get a dopamine hit from people’s reactions. Tell him he can’t or shouldn’t and he’s all in, just like my husband. Who yes, thinks Trump was a hero yesterday for speaking about someone dying like a dog. It’s very hard to make sense of these toxic ways of reasoning and I wonder how much Kim confronts or how much she ignores. I’ve been dealing with this for many years (three times longer than Kim) in therapy and have had my fill. Maybe money buffers the effects of bipolar in having endless resources. She isn’t dependent on him for material support or practical help. So in a lot of ways he can be crazy and the worst part is just public opinion.

    • Jaded says:

      Thank you for sharing that with us Abby. You are absolutely right about what Kanye is going through, but unfortunately he has a sh*tload of enablers, including his wife and her family, who feed his insatiable hunger to present himself as some latter-day Messiah who will save the world and whose beliefs are the ONLY ones with any validity. It’s going to crash in a bad way at some point, of that I am certain.

  60. Ceecu33 says:

    She’s married to him though and is staying married. I’m sure there’s a tight prenup, but still. Staying with him knowing he’s basically a sexist pig who hides behind religion is saying you’re okay with it

  61. kacy says:

    I know some people will see this as a tin-foil conspiracy. But no too long ago, Kanye was over $50 million in debt. My guess, someone paid his bills and gave him talking points.

  62. MangoAngelesque says:

    Yeah, if Kim does not EXPLICITLY say that she is not in this train with him, that she, in fact, pro-choice still and all, then she goes down with him. I get that she can’t be held accountable for his batsh*tness, but silence speaks volumes in complicity. And promoting his stupid ass screams those complicit volumes, no matter what the prenup says.

  63. Andrea says:

    I just had a big falling out with a friend of mine who is not medicating herself properly with bi polar disorder. When she is medicated, she is an absolute joy to be around. When she is not medicated, she becomes manic and I can only describe it as bullying/cult-like behavior. She is really into spirituality and accuses me of being judgmental and not listening to her advice, almost like she is like my cult leader. I find her behavior extremely hurtful and abusive. If she is anything like Kanye, run Kim, run!

  64. JustMe says:

    My partner is bipolar. His last episode was a total manic break where he thought God had chosen him to lead the broken of society. I was evil according to the vouces he could hear. See where I’m going with this? Mania can have different forms and creative types often don’t want to take medications as it stifles the creativity. Obviously Kayne is unwell but I’ve been in Kim’s place – it’s hard to convince others of a breakdown when they see the person as being a genius and not ill..

    • MangoAngelesque says:

      Genuine question: are you not fearful for your safety when he has these phases? What prevents him from believing these voices telling him to rid your evil presence permanently? Or is that something that you can even think about?

      • JustMe says:

        Yes I do fear what the voices tell him…at one point I slept in my van rather than the house. We separated during this time as for my own well being i couldn’t live with him.
        It ended up with him thinking people were breaking into the house and he took off in my van before the police got here. Eventually he went to police station as he thought people were trying to kill him.

        He spent a month in a facility and is on medication now. But he is a shadow of his former self…but at least he’s safe. We live together but if we spoke more than 50 words a day id be surprised. But in sickness and in health right?

  65. No Doubt says:

    It’s crazy to me that people still support his music and merchandise after all the stupid things he has said over the years. Still, a part of me feels sorry for him because he is willfully ignorant/dumb and has a wife that enables his gross statements and behavior. Those poor children are going to grow up with the same ignorance, ego and vanity as their parents.

  66. Hmmm says:

    He is not educated enough to speak on these type of topics.

    Who would’ve thought that Kim Kardashian would end up being too good for him. Everyone said Kanye run. LoL

  67. Nightsky says:

    How fun is this? A very mentally unstable man using his fading fame platform to preach lifestyle choices, religion and politics. And of course, to try to keep himself relevant and newsworthy. First and foremost, he is a delusional famewhore. Such a sad and scary commentary on the unstable times we’re living in. A musician who supports a racist, hate mongering, desperately insecure lunatic. Fuq.

  68. JennEricaMS says:

    I feel for Kim when it comes to the difficulties that come with having a spouse whose views are in complete opposition to yours. I’ve been there and it puts a strain on every aspect of your life. In my case, I was the one who changed my views as I grew older and learned more about life. I was a die-hard, pro-life, Republican (or as die-hard as one can be at 19) because that’s how I had been raised and my husband was the same. The end of the Bush era was when I finally started to see the light and I voted for Obama on his second term. Three and a half years later Trump shows up and my husband was going to vote for him which would have ended our marriage. Thankfully after hours and hours of conversation he started to look at things differently and a large part of that is due to our 11-year old daughter. He couldn’t reconcile the things that asswipe said when it was put into the context of “what if this was our child”. We still don’t see eye to eye on every issue and that’s okay, but he is now a staunch supporter of women’s rights, equality for all, and a woman’s right to choose and plans to vote blue during the next election. I would have hated to walk away because I still love him after all these years but I couldn’t look my daughter in the eye otherwise.

  69. Jana says:

    Besides his fame and money, I have no idea what she ever saw in him, he isn’t handsome, intelligent, or personable. He seems like a short , angry man with a chip on his shoulder.

    • Nightsky says:

      All very true but at the time, before he totally lost his shit, he was her “in” to a world that had previously mocked her, rejected her, and considered her a joke. He bought her seats at the Met Ball, a Vanity Fair cover, a spot next to Anna Wintour at fashion shows, and other tidbits of “respectability” that had previously eluded her. Fame and exposure beyond just some gross sex tape and a tacky reality show. She totally used him and he totally used her. I am betting though that she is now starting to see him as much more of a liability and will be filing for divorce before long.

    • naomipaige99 says:

      I don’t believe she will divorce him. She loves the attention that his crazy is bringing. She loves that people are feeling sorry for her. I ain’t buying it. She as well as Kanye love to have all eyes on them!

  72. Well-Wisher says:

    Now that Kanye West has shared his opinions, we can go back to regular programming.

  73. lidija says:

    This is all narcissistic injury i.e. he is desperate for attention from any power figure. He suffered when he lost his mother, whom I am assuming probably doted on him and made him feel like a God.

  74. naomipaige99 says:

    I completely believe the Kim 100% loves all the attention that Kanye’s crazy is bringing

  75. Dani says:

    His mental illness does not equate his political views. Kanye has always been anti-black (this isn’t new at all for those so appalled). He’s entitled to his views and I wouldn’t doubt that Kim quietly supports his views but keeps it quiet because of her level of fame. She won’t leave him and she won’t speak out.

  76. Maggie says:

    It sounds like Kanye is late to the highly controversial Freakonomics Theory where Roe Vs. Wade led to a generation of less crime because unwanted pregnancies were terminated. I’m one 100% speculating of course, but it’s like he read that chapter in Freakonomics, internalized it, and decided Roe Vs. Wade was some sort of quiet racial cleansing. I think its a reach to say that crime fell purely because “the criminals were never born”, and I also don’t think they correlated race in the theory.
    but this is like when Trump read some mysterious article regarding how the Kurds didn’t help in Normandy and it managed to fit into his agenda and act like the authority on D-day, while opening a gateway to Genocide. Its Classic Narcissism to learn about something half-assed, and then take it on as your own rhetoric.
