Are Folks Ready To Forgive Kanye West?



Kanye West is trying to work his way back to the cookout … but is it working?

Following his public apology (for wearing a MAGA hat and saying slavery was a choice, among other things) on WGCI radio in his hometown of Chicago, HipHollywood attended the premiere for The Bobby Brown Story, and got some celebs to weigh in. The results were split.

“He’s still on probation right now he got to earn that back, he gotta to do something” joked actor Christian Keys. “The best apology is changed behavior, you can’t keep apologizing 100 times and keep doing the same things.”

“He can come back but he gone have to work for it” said 50 Central‘s Vince Swann. “Like Slavery is a choice? I don’t think there was a sign up sheet in Africa.”

“I think our community has always been forgiving and that has kept us, said singer Angela Winbush. “He doesn’t have his mom and I can understand the un-anchoring of his spirit so we need to just pray for him.”

ICYMI, Ye sat down with the hosts 107.5 and apologized to those he offended when he said 400 years slavery “sounds like a choice” while on TMZ earlier this year.

“I don’t know if I properly apologized for how the slavery comment made people feel,” said. “I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment, and I’m sorry for people that felt let down by that moment.”

He went on to say that his TMZ appearance is a perfect window into what it’s like to live with bipolar disorder, which he was diagnosed with after his 2016 hospitalization.

“I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through and what led me to that and I just appreciate you guys holding on to me as a family,” he said.

Actors Elijah Kelly and Woody McClain echoed his sentiments, saying West will always be family and BLack people shouldn’t just throw him away.

“We are a family in general and until we perish we are us,” said Kelly.

“We are all brothers and sisters we can be mad at each other, but we have get it over it and move on,” said McClain.
