And among those celebrity friends annoyed at Yeezys Trump endorsement is Lana Del Rey.
The songstress, who performed at Kanye and Kim Kardashians wedding in 2014, is not a fan of the rappers political leanings, and called his endorsement of POTUS reckless.
Speaking to NME, Lana, who has just released her new album Norman F***ing Rockwell, said: His commentary felt so bold and reckless and self-assured, and it was talking about somebody – the President – who has engendered a lot of hatred within the culture.
I feel like theres a carelessness there to not see that theres been an increase of meanness [spread] around by certain supporters.
And speaking about the President, the 34-year-old said: People were p***ed before when I didnt say anything. We didnt have Trump as President before. There was less to say.
I grew up with Obama and we were happy in New York. We were really happy with everything. Thats what I think people miss. We had gotten to a point where we could focus on the music and the arts. It was great.
Lana namedrops Kanye – who used her song Young and Beautiful as the soundtrack to his proposal to Kim – on her song The Greatest, about the current climate, singing: Kanye West is blond and gone.
The Born To Die singer previously hit out at the 42-year-old rapper after he ended his Saturday Night Live appearance last year with an unscripted pro-Trump rant.
Lana commented on Instagram: Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture.
I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we werent speaking about the man leading our country.
If you think its alright to support someone who believes its OK to grab a woman by the p***y just because hes famous, then you need an intervention just as much as he does.
