Kardashians 'shocked beyond words' over Kanye West's rally meltdown, scared people will boycott them now
Kanye West recently had his first presidential rally in South Carolina on Sunday, July 19. According to a source, the Kardashian family has been left 'seriously concerned and upset' over West's presidential rally meltdown, TMZ reports. The rapper's family and friends have been urging him to seek help for what they say is a major bipolar episode.
At his first campaign event, Kanye West broke down in tears and told everyone that his wife Kim Kardashian had almost aborted their first child, North West. The very personal revelation during the rally 'shocked the family beyond words'. At that moment, West too acknowledged that he may have crossed the line as he said that his wife could very well file for divorce over his comments. He also shared that if she did divorce him, he would still just thank her for having North West. The Kardashian family are also worried about West causing a 'distraction in what is a very important election'.
At the rally, West said, "I don't give a fu** if I win the presidency or not. There are homeless people in front of the Gucci store. I care about these things. And I am in service of God." During the rally, he also said that parents would receive a financial boost and everyone with a baby should automatically receive a million dollars. He added how marijuana should be made free.
West's family is worried that if he continues his rants, he will set off boycotts. The 43-year-old was also booed at by his own supporters after he ranted about anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman. He said that she did not free slaves but "just had them go work for other White people." Several audience members walked out of West's first rally saying that the remarks were very 'disrespectful'. One audience member was heard saying, "Yo, we leaving right now."
Social media users also slammed Kanye West for his comments. One such user shared, "This man is in serious need of guidance and help. It is very uncomfortable viewing and people may joke but this man has thousands of followers and his ill informed comments could cause a lot of damage. The knock on effects disastrous Bless him!" Another wrote: "I am afraid that Kanye is in a serious danger of a mental breakdown. Campaigning is very stressful and he has not been stable for long enough to take this chance," another wrote. Yet another user added, "I don't get it. It's like he was spinning around in a room and launched an arrow, and it landed on Harriet Tubman... We got like, a bunch of real shit going wrong here, and there's also a lot of historic figures which need to be re-assessed culturally, but Harriet Tubman?"
We had earlier shared that some social media users were blaming the Kardashians for West's meltdown with many defending the family. One user had responding, "Stop blaming the Kardashians over behavior Kanye already had before he got with Kim." Another said: "I can't believe Twitter has me ready to go off on a tangent in defense of the Kardashians. What the hell man?! Kanye's mental illness is his, not Kim's. She can't save him from his bipolar illness if he doesn't want to save himself from it."
