Kanye West raised some eyebrows at the TMZ newsroom, and upset at least employee, when he suggested slavery was a “choice.” In clip from the rapper’s visit toTMZ Live, West touched on a number of topics, but spent a chunk of time talking about Donald Trump and what a big fan he is of the president. At another point in his visit, while talking with Harvey Levin and Charles Latibeaudiere, West made a comment in which he suggested that slavery was a “choice.” “When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” he said. The TMZ interview follows a series of controversial tweets the rapper sent last week in which he called President Trump his “brother” and said that they both possessed “dragon energy.” You can see the TMZ clips below.
