The actor just had to say something after Kanye West stirred some new drama by posting a super outrageous message this morning. The rapper shared a pic of him wearing a Make America Great Again cap that he captioned: ‘This represents good and America becoming whole once again. We’ll no longer outsource to other countries. We instead build factories here in America and create jobs. We’ll provide jobs for all those who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.’
Upon reading the confusing, to say the least, post, Chris Evans retweeted it and added his response.
‘There is nothing more maddening than debating somebody who does not know history, does not read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I have encountered lately is not just frustrating, it is retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying,’ the Avengers star wrote.
His post was quick to get a lot of praise on social media, many people seemingly agreeing with it.
Even though Ye took to the platform again later to explain he didn’t mean to say the 13th amendment should be abolished but that it needs to be amended, users were still by the actor’s side.
Many retweeted his post and added their own opinions into the mix.
‘Just when I thought I couldn’t find you any more attractive….here we are,’ someone gushed over Chris’ point of view and eloquent conveyance.
But there were also other fellow celebrities who slammed Kanye’s message.
Lana Del Rey, for instance, responded by saying: ‘Trump becoming our president was a huge loss for the country, but your [Kanye’s] support of him is also a loss for the culture.’
The singer went on to say that ‘I can only assume that you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of grandeur, issues with narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we were not talking about the man leading our country. If you think it is alright to support someone who believes it is OK to grab a woman by the p***y just because he is famous, then you need an intervention as much as he does.’
