Kanye West turned “Saturday Night Live'” traditional goodnights into a platform for his feelings and his beliefs and it was as Kanye as you’d expect it to be.
Hours after he proclaimed himself “YE,” the rapper performed on “Saturday Night Live” to promote his new album, “Yandhi.”
First, he dressed up in a Perrier bottle to perform a very censored version of “I Love It” with Lil Pump (see below) and then did “We Got Love” with Teyana Taylor.
But Kanye went full Kanye at the end of the show when he spewed his thoughts on being laughed at and bullied for wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat. He referred to the hat as his “Superman cape” and urged his fans to “follow their heart and not their mind.”
Sounds about right.
Not all of Kanye’s speech made it to air. Later (and captured on Chris Rock’s Instagram Story, of all places) he continued to speak and tried to defend why he supports Donald Trump even though people call him a racist.
“Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago.”
Trump voiced his support Kanye on Twitter on Sunday morning, writing, “Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!”
