Will.i.am addresses Kanye West's

Kanye West fired some major shots in recent days and is now under fire himself for his controversial pro-Trump tweets, yesterday's TMZ Live appearance and basically everything he's said in any way the past few weeks.

Kanye sparked outrage on Tuesday when he spoke about slavery.

Currently, people are going in on the father of three and rapper for a comment he made regarding slavery in an interview with TMZ. "You know like, it's like we're mentally in prison".

Several people pointed out on Twitter that there is actually no proof that Tubman ever said those words.

Did Kanye West announce he wants to be a slave for three months to prove slavery wasn't that bad, and will he be having auditions for a "master" soon?

Kanye West performing at the 2016 MTV MTV Video Music Awards in August, New York. "I felt free to be an independent thinker'". Like, you were there for 400 years and it's all of you all?

"I disagree with it emphatically, you dig what I'm saying?" As for advice to Kanye, DeRay says this: "Slow down, find a place where you can learn and read and be in a place where your ideas are also challenged and you can push on other peoples ideas - which I don't think for you, right now, is the public space".

"But it's not great when we are telling you not to stand next to somebody we consider a bigot, and you're like, "nah I am gonna throw this 'Make America Great Again" hat on again, ' even though America has never been great for minorities -ever".

Black Eyed Peas member Will.I.Am went on "Good Morning Britain" Wednesday and said West's remarks broke his heart. That would be the worst thing to stir up the very touchy race situation and you be the benefactor of it... And the reason why I feel like that is because, Kanye, you're entitled to your opinion.

Asked what he admired about Trump, West told fellow rapper T.I., "the ability to do what no one said you can do, to do the impossible".

"Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something to me, that's not real".

Filmmaker Matthew Cherry thanked Lathan for stepping in.
