Kanye West may be happy to have killed his ego but he’s really glad he didn’t kill his marriage to Kim Kardashian. At least, not yet. Kanye spoke with the New York Times (via E! News) about his recent slavery comments and how his Kimmy felt about them. Kanye says:
“There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low, and I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’ So that was a real conversation.”
Of course he knew Kim might leave him. She hates losing fans (AKA money) and black people already have her on thin ice. She can’t wear Bo Derek braids AND be married to a slavery-denier! Gotta pick, Kimmy!
An E! News “source” also made sure to remind you that Kim certainly does not feel the same way about slavery or Trump. She loves black people, remember?
“Kim and Kanye have a solid relationship, even with what’s going on right now… She loves and supports her husband. Even if they have differences in views and opinions, she knows his heart.”
And Kanye of course tried to clarify his words, which sounds like exactly what he said the first time:
“I said the idea of sitting in something for 400 years sounds—sounds—like a choice to me, I never said it’s a choice. I never said slavery itself—like being shackled in chains—was a choice. That’s why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works.”
See, Kanye: when I say you and your wife sound–SOUND–like imbeciles, I’m not calling you imbeciles. I never said you guys yourselves are imbeciles. That’s why I went from you thinking slavery is a choice to you sound like an imbecile. If you look at the clip, you see the way my mind works.
Kanye also had to work through some suicidal thoughts which he’s dealt with in the past:
“Oh yeah… I’ve thought about killing myself all the time. It’s always [an] option and [expletive]. Like Louis C.K.. said: I flip through the manual. I weigh all the options. I’m just having this epiphany now, ’cause I didn’t do it, but I did think it all the way through. But if I didn’t think it all the way through, then it’s actually maybe more of a chance of it happening.”
To help Kanye, Kim apparently hired professional white people hype-man, Tony Robbins, to come and assist. Because he has great opinions on everything. All of these people have huge egos. There is not a single down-to-earth person in this narrative. Your husband acts a fool on TMZ so you hire the most accomplished motivational speaker in the world to handle him? Why not an actual therapist? I really can’t. What do rich people think it’s like for us peasants, I wonder? Like how would Kim think a normal family would deal with these issues? “What? Like, you can’t, like, hire a professional, like, motivational speaker to, like, save your husband? Like? Tragic.”
