John Legend Wants Kanye West to Rethink His Support of President Trump

JOHN LEGEND reached out to KANYE WEST privately in a text yesterday, asking him to rethink his support of PRESIDENT TRUMP . . . and Kanye decided to make their conversation public.  Which is fine.  They never actually fought or anything.



John said, quote, “I hope you’ll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump.  You’re way too powerful and influential to endorse who he is and what he stands for.  As you know, what you say really means something to your fans.



“They are loyal to you and respect your opinion.  So many people who love you feel so betrayed right now because they know the harm that Trump’s policies cause, especially to people of color.  Don’t let this be part of your legacy.  You’re the greatest artist of our generation.”



Kanye responded, quote, “I love you John and I appreciate your thoughts.  You bringing up my fans or my legacy is a tactic based on fear used to manipulate my free thought.”



John was just as cool with his response . . . quote, “Think freely.  Think with empathy and context too.  Your words and actions have consequences.  Much love.



“And since you’re posting texts, let me add that I have a new single out haha.”  To which Kanye replied, quote, “Haha. I love you John.”  (E! Online)
