After reading John Legend’s latest tweet, social media users are convinced the singer subtly slammed Kanye West following his Twitter rant about Donald Trump. As you may be aware, the rapper took to the platform to show some love to the controversial current president and a lot of people, including John Legend, did not like that at all!
Not only that, but Kanye also posted a pic that featured him sporting a Make America Great Again hat!
Although Kim Kardashian told her husband to delete his post, in the end, she still defended his rant
However, Legend did not follow the KUWK star’s example.
‘I love that great, brilliant artist have the power to imagine a better future. But artists cannot be blind to the truth,’ John Legend tweeted.
We can only assume he was subtly shading Kanye and we were not the only ones who think so.
One fan responded to John’s tweet, saying: ‘@KanyeWest John is trying to help you. Stop tweeting and please listen.’
Legend went on: ‘I imagine there is some comfort in imagining a future without racism and projecting that onto the present. Thinking if we just deny the truth, it does not exist. If history is erased, we do not have to deal with its consequences. However… far too many people do not have the luxury of closing their eyes and ears. They feel it in their lives and cannot act like what they see and know does not exist.’
Although it is not officially confirmed that Legend was talking about Kanye West, the timing and the topic of his tweets would be too much of a coincidence.
‘They see the statistics about black applications for real estate or loans or employment being turned away because their name was Jamal and not James,’ Legend concluded.
