Kanye receives instant backlash for 'slavery is a choice' remarks

NEW YORK-Rapper Kanye West, on the receiving end of criticism in the music world after backing President Donald Trump, sparked fresh outrage the other day when he called slavery "a choice". "You can't hit on sensitive issues and not expect a backlash", the 34-year-old retired football player shared Wednesday with TMZ.

During the verbal spar, Kanye asked, "Do you feel that I'm being free and I'm thinking free?"

Despite her husband Kanye West's outlandish comments lately, the reality star is reportedly concerned but is willing to stand by her man.

Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am expressed "hurt" over Kanye's words admitting that "wanted to cry" when he saw his last tweets.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV today following the company's strong earnings report, Rorsted said board members have not discussed the possibility of cutting ties with West - who spearheads a collaboration with the athletic giant through his Yeezy sneaker line.

As for TMZ staffer Van Lathan's response to Kanye's thoughts on slavery, Charlamagne adds, "I'm glad Van was there in that moment to speak up, to 100 percent check that". On several occasion, Kanye West himself has said out loud that he experiences life rather than reading about it. Kanye's point about slavery was not an act of free thought, but one caused by a lack of awareness and knowledge. Like, you were there for 400 years and it's all of you all?

IndiGo Q4 profit drops 73% to Rs 118 crore on surging costs
IndiGo is the country's largest airline with a market share of almost 40 percent and operates around 1,000 flights daily. Profit dropped to Rs 118 crore, from Rs 440 crore a year earlier, dragged down by higher expenses and fuel costs.

After the "Ultralight Beam" rapper made some controversial remarks on Twitter as well as in interviews, sources close to Kardashian claim that she is anxious about West but is doing her best to protect him.

About 40 million people are now thought to be trapped in forced labour and forced marriages, with women and girls making up 70% of victims, according to a landmark joint estimate by the United Nations and rights group Walk Free Foundation.

"I am my ancestors, I am their survival, I am their will", Lathan said.

There have been some high hurdles to clear in the past months in terms of people of influence saying asinine and ignorant things.

Trump quickly cited West as evidence of rising support among minorities. I said that you need to apologize to the black community.

The question is, does free thinking mean you can rule out a historical fact, just because one person thinks so? "If I say I love Dr. Jan Adams that performed my mother's final surgery, people don't accept forgiveness and love".
