Kanye West Apologizes for Slavery Comment, Breaks Down on Air

Kanye West is known for saying a lot of crazy stuff.

He just comes right out and tells the world what sort of porn he likes to watch, for instance.

But the rapper appeared on Chicago-based radio station 107.5 on Wednesday and said something we never expected to hear him say:

Kanye issued an apology.

The artist has been under more fire than ever before over the past several weeks, due to patently ridiculous comments he made this summer about how slavery was a choice for black people.

He also made it clear, over and over and over again, that he was an ardent support of Donald Trump, sharing a photo, for instance, of himself in a Make America Great Again hat.

In this radio interview, however, Kanye basically took it all back.

"I don’t know if I properly apologized for how the slavery comment made people feel,” West said, adding on air:

"I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment, and I’m sorry for people that felt let down by that moment.

"And I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through."

Wow, right?

Kanye actually dissolved into full-on tears at one point as well, touching on the subject of his late mother and how he has lacked a support system over the years.

He told the hosts that's the reason why his wife, Kim Kardashian, has not suffered a mental breakdown yet: because her family is always, always there for her.

"The thing about being called crazy, the biggest stigma that has to be broken is that you instantly get written off,” he continued.

“But you might be the only one who knows what they’re talking about. Also, what I wanna say to everyone listening right now – I have never really approached or addressed the slavery comment fully.

"And it’s not something for me to overly intellectualize.

"This is something about the fact that it hurt people’s feelings and the way that I presented that piece of information. I could present in a way, more calm way, but I was ramped up. And I apologize.

"That happens sometimes when people are – I’m not blaming mental health, but I’m explaining mental health."

We never thought we'd live to see this day, did you?

Kendall Jenner Makes Dumb Comment, Pisses Off Entire Modeling World

Remember the great Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad debacle of 2017?

Well, this isn’t quite as bad as that, but it’s still evidence that you can spend your entire life in the spotlight and still grow up to be totally ignorant of how to interact with the general public.

As you’re probably aware, Kendall is a model — and quite a successful one, at that.

But from the start, there have been rumors that she’s had trouble earning the respect of her fellow models.

Reports of Kendall being snubbed by her colleagues were rampant after her first Victoria’s Secret show, but it seems she’s managed to win some of the skeptics over in the years since.

Now, however, she may have squandered all that hard-earned goodwill with a single awkward interview.

“Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do,” Kendall recently told Love magazine.

“I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the f-ck those girls do. More power to ‘em. But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else,” she added.

“The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back.”

Turns out boasting about how in-demand you are doesn’t exactly endear you to people struggling to make a living in your field, especially when you were born with advantages they can only dream of.

The backlash against Kendall was immediate — and intense.

“This makes me so angry,” Victoria’s Secret model Jac Jagaciak tweeted in response to the interview.

“So disrespectful to literally 99% of people in the industry — yes, they had to work their way up. Please get in touch with the real world!”

Model Vita Sidorkina also chimed in, tweeting:

“Maybe ‘those girls’ need to pay their bills that’s why they are doing 30 shows? No words…”

Kendall quickly got in front of the situation and apologized in a lengthy statement posted on several social media platforms:

“I was misrepresented in a recent interview over the weekend and it’s important to clarify the meaning. It was intended to be entirely complimentary but unfortunately, my words were twisted and taken out of context,” she wrote.

“I want to be clear. The respect I have for my peers is immeasurable!”

Kendall added:

“I get to experience first hand their tireless commitment, their work ethic, the endless days, the lack of sleep, separation from family and friends, stress of traveling, the toll on physical and mental health, yet they still make it all look effortless and beautiful.

“I’m so inspired by so many of these people I have had the good fortune to work alongside! There’s no way I could EVER hate on that. I want everyone to win. SLAY ALWAYS.” 

Hmm … we’re willing to give her the benefit of the doubt because much of the meaning of Kendall’s original statement would depend on the tone in which it was expressed.

Of course, we’re not the ones Kendall is apologizing to.

Her fellow models are obviously pissed — and her apology, no matter how well-intentioned, may be too little, too late.
