While comedian Romesh Ranganathan appeared to reference Mr West's first album, College Dropout, in a tweet.

Rapper T.I. has defended Kanye West's recent freaky behaviour, insisting the musician is "working through his own personal journey". "It's shocking. When he said some of the things he said, it was nearly like looking at everything that I looked up to and had influenced me so much, and wondered, was it all bullsh*t?"

"It's crippling to see what's happened".

Kanye West's deplorable TMZ Live interview won't cost him his gig with Adidas, despite the backlash he has received from countless fans, celebrities & others.

Kanye West has stirred up more controversy by suggesting that four centuries of the enslavement of African Americans was a "choice".

"Adidas sold 400 million pairs of shoes previous year. It's like we're mentally in prison".

"Absolutely not", Lathan answered when asked if West's response swayed his emotions.

I can say that Milan is not among those clubs.

I think what you're doing right now is actually the absence of thought, and the reason why I feel like that is because Kanye, you're entitled to your opinion.

"Stand on all the coffee tables you want to stand on", he continued. There's fact and real life outcome behind everything that you just said.

Boy Scouts Will Change Program Name to 'Scouts BSA'
This is the first marketing push since the Boy Scouts announced late past year it would open its ranks to girls . For 108 years, the Boy Scouts of America's flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts.

African-American novelist and essayist Roxane Gay said: "I don't have the energy for nonsense but Kanye saying slavery was a choice reiterates my previous statements about how unsafe his trite, shallow ramblings are".

The Louisiana native said he could not let West disregard his history and cultural heritage so easily.

"I feel sad that I lost a hero", Lathan said. "I don't want to seem ungrateful, I just think that if in fact this conversion to love is genuine on your part ... then it's inappropriate to drag the negativity of the past with it".

The Runaway singer wrapped up his call with her to field questions from the cameraman about the "crazy threats" he's faced - presumably from Daz Dillinger, the rapper who called upon Crips gang members to "f*** Kanye up" after the rapper stated his support for President Donald Trump in recent weeks, even donning the red Make America Great Again cap.

My future? There are many teams in Italy that follow me.

There, West made himself comfortable in a private rental home aloft a mountain, where he immediately tuned into his work in complete solitary.

"There clearly are some comments we don't support", he said, according to the report.

"Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will", West wrote on Twitter.

His whole thing is that we're choosing to be enslaved by choosing to listen to the media outlets, we're letting people influence our thoughts, influence the way we do things, and I think that's what he meant.

But now that West has gone off-script, it could hurt the brand's reputation.
