Kanye West revealed his life was threatened after he began publicly expressing support for President Donald Trump and wearing a MAGA hat.
During an explosive interview during FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday, West revaled the attacks he faced since coming out as pro-MAGA.
“My so-called friends, slash handlers around me told me, like, if I said that I like Trump, that my career will be over, that my life would be over,” West said.
“They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that. They threatened my life.”
“They basically said that I would be killed for wearing the hat,” he said.
“I had someone call me last night and said, ‘Anybody wearing a White Lives Matter shirt is going to be green-lit,’ and that means that they’re going to beat them up if they wear it,” West added.
“I’m like, you know, green light me then.”
Earlier this week, Kanye West faced fire from the liberal left after he wore a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt at Paris fashion week.
The shirt, featuring a photo of Pope John Paul II on the front, was worn by models on the catwalk, West, and political commenter Candace Owens, who was a guest at the show.
West told the audience: “Everyone here knows that I am the leader … you can’t manage me. This is an unmanageable situation.”
