Kanye West: Trump is my brother, the mob can’t make me not love him


American rapper Kanye West described US President Donald Trump as his brother in a Twitter rant on Thursday.

West, a 21-time Grammy award winner, published dozens of tweets in support of the US president.

“You don’t have to agree with Trump, but the mob can’t make me not love him,” said West.

“We are both dragon energy. He is my brother.”

Following the tweets, many celebrities unfollowed and spoken out against West.

Members of West’s wife Kim Kardashian’s family unfollowed him on Twitter, including Kylie Jenner, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.

Celebrities such as Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have also unfollowed him.

Stephen Colbert addressed the series of tweets in a new clip for The Late Late Show.

After quoting West’s tweet where he said “we have the right to independent thought”, Colbert quipped: “I independently think that Kanye has lost his mind.”

“Brother to brother, I just want to say – put the phone down,” the comedian pleaded.

Actor and rapper Ice T wrote a succinct summary of his feelings, saying he was “done” with the rapper.

Close friend John Legend wrote a series of tweets which did not directly mention West, but appear to be calling him out.

Legend concluded with: “The defining trait of Trump’s campaign and political profile was his embrace of white supremacy.

“He made it clear every time he spoke. Some serious cognitive dissonance to ignore that for the others you might find appealing.”

West responded by saying he appreciates Legend’s point of views but “I stand my ground”.
