Will Smith Seems To Throw Kanye West And President Donald Trump Under The Bus In New Video
Will Smith recently took part in a new interview with activist Angela Rye as part of her podcast, On One With Angela Rye , where the conversation was mainly focused on politics.
Smith took the opportunity to throw both President Donald Trump and Kanye West under the bus while talking about voting in November.
The actor spoke about the Black Lives Matter movement and revealed that he had faced racism many times in his life.
Smith talked politician Frank Rizzo who left his mark in West Philadelphia where he was born and raised: "I've been called n**ger by the cops in Philly on more than ten occasions. I got stopped frequently. So I understand what it's like to be in those circumstances with the police."
He applauded the global protests sparked by the death of George Floyd by saying: "We are in a circumstance that we've never been in before. The entire globe has stood up and said to the African American people, 'We see you and we hear you. How can we help?' We've never been there before."
He added: "Peaceful protests put a mirror to the demonic imagery of your oppressor. And the more still you are in your peaceful protest, the clearer the mirror is for your oppressor -- for the world to see and for them to see themselves. I was encouraged by how powerfully this generation was able to hold that mirror, and then the response of the world seeing and responding. I was deeply encouraged by the innate connectivity of the protesters, globally."
He said do not vote for anyone with hate in their hearts and added: "Don't succumb to lovelessness no matter how much evil you face, because [then] you poison yourself and you poison your own community. I am pledging my unending devotion to the evolution of my community and the evolution of my country, and ultimately the world, towards the greatest harmony that we'll be able to create.I am happy to be alive during this time, and to serve."
One observer said this: "He definitely hit it on the nose with this one. If you don't fear God or have love in your heart, how can you lead a nation?"
Another commenter shared: "He is incredibly right! He said what he said!"
This person revealed: "So don't vote for TRUMP or KANYE!!! He is talking about Trump and Kanye. 😂😂"
People on social media still want him to address the August Alsina situation with his wife, Jada.
