Swizz Beatz Calls Out Kanye West For Wearing MAGA Hat During SNL Performance
Swizz Beatz isn't a huge Kanye West fan at the moment. After Kanye delivered a bizarre speech about his support for Donald Trump during his performance on Saturday Night Live on Sept. 29, Swizz Beatz felt compelled to send a message to his friend on Instagram. According to Swizz, Kanye's blind support for the country's most problematic president and the use of the MAGA hat as an everyday accessory has to stop.
“I just seen that SNL, Kanye,” Swizz said in his Instagram video. “And I hear you talking about being bullied for the hat. It feels kinda funny because we were just talking about the hat less than 48 hours ago…. I was just addressing how uncomfortable the culture feels with you representing somebody who’s blatantly hurting our people.”
While the producer stated that he still has love for the misguided artist, he urged Ye to stop the antics. "Ain’t nobody bullying you, we love you,” he continued. “But you gotta stop that s**t man, that s**t ain’t right, and you know how I feel.” He concluded his video by playing an upbeat song that repeats the phrase, "F**k the MAGA hat."
Following backlash surrounding the MAGA hat and his impromptu rant after SNL stopped taping, Kanye continued to push his agenda by sharing a photo of him rocking his Trump merch on Instagram. "This represents good and America becoming whole again,” he tried to explained. “We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”
Swizz Beatz wasn't the only celebrity not amused by Kanye's bizarre behavior. Avengers star Chris Evans, Questlove, and Lana del Rey, also expressed their concern and disappointment in Kanye.
Kanye is expected to visit TMZ for another video interview on Monday (Oct. 1). Maybe he he will elaborate on his flawed theories.
