Pharell Williams Says People Need To Support Kanye West 'Regardless' Of Trump-Related Issues
It's already a known fact that Kanye West has been slammed by just about everyone after he publicly declared his support for Donald Trump. He's been facing tons of heat from the whole African-American community for his love for Trump.
The Shade Room just reported that while many of Kanye's buddies have turned their back on him, some people haven't done the same.
There's one celebrity in particular who is still in his corner despite his controversial political views.
Pharrell had an exclusive interview with Complex, and he also addressed the subject Kanye West.
'We have to love our brother, regardless. We might not agree with him, but we can't stand by and watch anything happen to him, because he's our brother. And we've gotta pay attention to the symbolism of what's happening, you know? That's our brother,' he said.
He continued and explained 'Never have we ever, in history, have we ever witnessed a staple in the community be utilized in that way. In that kind of way, with that kind of real impression. So I look at the symbolism of that, and I say, man, that's our brother. We don't want to abandon him because we fundamentally disagree. We care about his well-being.'
TSR said that he highlighted the fact that he doesn’t agree with Kanye’s stance on certain political issues.
'I'm not siding with him at all. I said that's our brother and we can't give up on him,' he said. 'I'm not siding with him in any of that. What I'm looking at is his DNA. He's our brother, he's human. You know what I'm saying?'
Someone commented 'He made some valid points but what Kanye is experience right now is our brotherly tough love. He has to be made to see that partnering with a demon isn’t a good thing! So we still love him but as you do with a junkie we don’t support him to get him fleshed out clean! IJS.'
Another commenter said 'Pharrell sir, if you would like to support Mr. West then more power to you, however, most of us are not willing to do so!'
Just recently, Kim Kardashian said that she had to educate her husband after he flaunted support for Donald Trump.
