Kanye West Tells Piers Morgan ‘Nobody Gets Judged More Than The Straight White Male’
Kanye West continues his tour of stirring up controversy. West pulled off his latest stunt when he sat down for an interview on the Piers Morgan Uncensored show. This time, the outspoken rapper decided to advocate for straight white males, saying “there’s nobody that gets judged more than a straight white male.”
“The straight while male has the least amount of a platform to even speak,” West told Morgan. “A straight white male can’t say my wife hurt me today.’ Because people will say you’re hurting women. A straight white male can’t say ‘a Black employee didn’t come in to work on time.’ Because people will say ‘you’re racist.’ A straight white male can’t speak on a homosexual person because people will say you’re homophobic.”
Ye (fka Kanye West) on “the straight white male” 🤔

West’s comment comes after his conservative friend, Candace Owens, recently uttered a similar sentiment. As Blavity previously reported, Owens shared her views when she was chosen as a speaker at Turning Point USA‘s college event at Michigan State University.
“The actually worst thing to be in this society — the one thing I would not want to be is a straight white male. For some reason, that’s considered problematic,” the conservative pundit said at the event.
West has continued to dig himself into a hole in recent weeks. As Blavity previously reported, the Grammy-winning artist faced backlash for wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt during his recent runway show at Paris Fashion Week. He was also locked out of Twitter after posting a hateful message against Jewish people.
