Chris Evans destroys Kanye West after he calls for abolition of 13th amendment that outlawed slavery
Kanye said that the 13th constitutional amendment that ended slavery should be abolished and he did so while sporting a MAGA hat
Chris Evans is openly calling out and criticizing Kanye West's call for the abolition of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and has dubbed the rapper's tweet as "maddening".
The whole situation unfolded when 41-year-old Kanye West took to Twitter to share a photograph of himself sporting a pro-Donald Trump 'Make America Great Again' hat while on a private plane. He captioned the photograph, "This 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".
To this Chris wrote:
There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying. https://t.co/4jCFwB4T5U— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) September 30, 2018
A few hours later, he added a quote by Isaac Asimov which read, "The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge". He captioned the post, "This".
The 13th amendment abolished slavery and also involuntary servitude and allowed "for prisoners to be used as slave labor," writer Yashar Ali tweeted while trying to understand Kanye's message. "But he doesn’t articulate that in his tweet, leaving people confused and others delighted," Ali added.
It has been a very political weekend for Kanye whose pro-Trump rant on 'Saturday Night Live' was met with several boos from the audience. As reported by People, a source added that Kanye's pro-Trump rant made the show's stars "uncomfortable". In response to West's support, Trump tweeted
Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2018
West had started the very controversial 'SNL' performance by singing, "I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now. And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear, where you and they can’t not stare. And they look at me and say, ‘It’s not fair. How the hell did you get here?’ Well…"
While sporting his 'Make America Great Again' hat, he also delivered a speech and said, "Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats. It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan". Amidst scattered claps, West added, "And what this shows is we can’t be controlled by monolithic thought. You can’t always have when you have a black subject matter like Cosby that you have to have a black comedian talk about it".
West added, "It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all the policies".
"But this man is a builder," West said referring to Trump. "And when I said I’m running in 2020, all my smart friends talked so much s— about me. And when I saw that man win, I said, ‘See, I told you. I could have been there'".
In response to this, a member from the audience yelled out "F— Trump" as Kanye said, "Now you got a situation where we need to have a dialogue and not a diatribe because if you want something to change, it’s not going to change by saying, ‘F— that person.’ Try love. Try love. Try love. Try love". People in the audience started laughing to which Kanye said, "You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me".
"They bullied me backstage they said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me. And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now," he continued. "Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do," he said as he took off his MAGA hat and put it back on. "Follow your heart and stop following your mind. That’s how we’re controlled. That how we’re programmed. If you want the world to move forward, try love," he shared.
