Saturday Night Live decided that a black Trump supporter was too much for them so NBC had cut the feed for time, but Mike Dean, West’s longtime producer and engineer, posted a clip of the rant on Twitter.
“You see they laughing at me. You heard em the scream at me. They bully me. They bullied me backstage. They said, ‘don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me!” Kanye said. A sole audience member clapped.
“And then they say I’m in a sunken place,” he continued. “You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to ya’ll now — or I’ma put my Superman cape on, cause this means you can’t tell me what to do. Follow your heart and stop following your mind. That’s how we’re controlled. That’s how we’re programmed. If you want the world to move forward, try love.”
