Kanye West To Further Discuss His 13th Amendment Comments On 'TMZ Live'

Ye seems to be confused about when the Reconstruction era law was put in place

(AllHipHop News) Do you remember what happened the last time Kanye West went on TMZ Live and talked about slavery? The Chicago-raised entertainer faced a torrent of backlash for suggesting black people chose to be enslaved in America, and he eventually apologized for those comments.

Well, West is supposedly returning to the program to speak about another topic related to slavery. Over the weekend, Ye was once again hit with widespread negative reactions when he tweeted about abolishing the 13th Amendment.

"This [MAGA hat] represents good and America becoming whole again. 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," tweeted the G.O.O.D. Music leader.

He clarified that statement by later tweeting, "Not abolish but let’s amend the 13th amendment. We apply everyone’s opinions to our platform."

A TMZ cameraman caught up with Kanye to get a better explanation for why he wanted to abolish/modify the Constitutional amendment that ended slavery in the US, except for incarceration. The outspoken Donald Trump supporter stated he would further explain his stance with Harvey Levin on the TMZ show.

After mistakenly implying that America's "Founding Fathers" Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Thomas Paine, and John Adams were involved in writing the 13th Amendment, Ye admitted he needed to do more research. The original Constitution was created in the 1780s, but the 13th Amendment was ratified nearly a century later in 1865.
