In case you missed it, Kanye West, or rather the artist formerly known as Kanye West since he now prefers to be referred to as YE, took to Twitter on Saturday to call for the abolition of the 13th Amendment. The problem is, the 13th Amendment just so happens to be the amendment which abolishes slavery. West tweeted out his thoughts on the 13th Amendment complete with a photo of him in a MAGA hat. “We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment,” West wrote. “Message sent with love.”
As usual this kind of behavior has caused him to explode all over the news cycle. To help make something that doesn’t make sense, make at least some sense, the awesome folks from Young Turks provide some context and color commentary in the video above.
