Akon remains to be backing Kanye West, even after the man proclaimed his love for Hitler and Nazis — going as far as to say, he is not offended … ‘trigger the remarks aren’t geared toward him.
The singer sat for an interview with Sky Information this week … throughout which he stated he helps Ye’s proper to talk his thoughts and say no matter he needs to say, no matter how a lot it would piss off society — which is seemingly how he is framed this saga in his thoughts.
Whereas Akon says he would make certain to provide KW his personal POV in opposition to Ye’s argument about liking Hitler — in a debate, it appears — he nonetheless does not like the thought of shutting the dude down and smothering out his speech simply because what he is saying is objectionable to some.
That final half is extremely telling, and one thing the journo caught onto — asking Akon if it troubles him that Kanye makes objectively horrid feedback, interval … with Akon responding, «Not likely, as a result of these feedback do not actually have an effect on me personally.»
In different phrases … not my group, not my battle. That actually appears to be the vibe Akon is projecting right here — and, as you’ll be able to think about, he is getting torn to shreds on Twitter over it.
Now, Akon is defending himself. He wrote, «I clearly don’t agree with Kanye’s remarksI about Hitler. I’m merely saying that everybody ought to have the correct to their very own opinion. Doesn’t imply we’ll all the time agree.» Seems like Ye nonetheless has one one that’ll tolerate him.
