There’s a lot of folks championing Kanye West’s loose lips, but on the other hand there’s also of ton of people that want him to be quiet and sit down. Arsenio Hall is one of the individuals.

The longtime talk-show host doesn’t hate Yeezus but thinks he needs to watch his mouth.

“As usual, Kanye’s premise confuses the facts,” Arsenio said, “So then therefore, everything else had to be thrown out.” He continues: “I hate the word ‘slave’ used in songs. The fuck outta here. Do you know what that word is?

“Do you know what that word is all about? Nobody can use the word ‘slave’ in pop culture. If you’re in the music business, you shouldn’t fuck with that word. Too serious an era. Too serious a problem in America. Do you know what it meant to slaves?”

What do you guys think?
