Will Kanye West’s net worth be affected by his Donald Trump comments? It could be! Yeezy have been trending on Twitter since West said he supported Donald Trump.
Yeezy was booed at his concert on Thursday when he announced he would have voted for Trump. “I told you all I didn’t vote right? ... But if I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump,” West said. “Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist OK? Let’s stop being distracted ... it’s just a f-cking fact, we are in a racist country, period.”
Sources later eleaborated on West's comments to TMZ. West admires Trump's campaign and the way he stared a moment. West beleives in "conflict bringing change," and thinks this controversial election will spark a conversation. He reportedly doesn't believe in Trump's policies though.
Soon fans took to Twitter to slam West for his comments. Some called him a hypocrite for calling the fashion industry racist and then saying black people needed to stop focusing on racism. Fans also said they were going to burn their Yeezys and stop buying them in protest.
Of course, West isn't the only celeb to get political in recent days. Speaking from the other side, Clooney slammed Trump saying his policies on imposing a religious test to enter the United States. She said his statements that suspected terrorists should be killed “are violations of international human rights law and the values that underlie that.”
“I think there’s some concern from abroad as to are these things actually going to happen or is the U.S. going to lose some of the moral standing that it has internationally,” the human rights lawyer reportedly said.
Comedians like Seth Meyers, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert have given monologues blasting Trump. And celebs like Katy Perry and Lena Dunham have voiced their distrust of Trump.
Dunham wrote an emotional essay after the election. She cried and broke out in hives when Clinton lost. “But then we fight,” she wrote. “So no, the work isn’t done. It is only beginning ... We will watch our friends in awe as they step forward and demand more, as they recognize and wield their politicized identities. We will not be governed by fear.”
There have been some Trump supporters, though. Stephen Baldwin, Ted Nugent, Kirstie Alley, Omarosa Manigualt, and more took to Twitter to congratulate Trump on his win.
