Kanye West Thinks Caitlyn Jenner Is Important To “Our Existence As Human Beings”

Kanye West is officially a member of the Kardashian clan, and with great celebrity power comes great responsibility. While it was previously revealed that Yeezy was instrumental in helping his wife Kim Kardashian accept Caitlyn Jenner, his support was aired for the world to see on Sunday night (July 26). In the series premiere of I Am Cait on E!, Kanye gave the former Olympic athlete the ultimate vote of confidence.

“I think this is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings, that are so controlled by perception,” Kanye said. “You couldn’t have been up against more.”

Kim was also on-hand for Caitlyn and Kanye’s first face-to-face, and complimented Caitlyn’s figure, noting her shock at how “skinny” she is. And while Cait admitted that she and Kanye were not close, she expressed gratitude for his helping hand in Kim’s acceptance. “Kanye and I have never really been very close, but I love his open mindedness. And I love how he’s helped Kim come to grips with what’s going on,” he said.
