On Wednesday, Kanye West retracted his earlier statement saying “slavery was a choice.” Said West, “I don’t know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel. I want to take this moment right now to say that I’m sorry for hurting, I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment and I’m sorry for people who felt let down by the moment.” Recognizing the repercussions of his words, West elaborated further, adding: “I appreciate you guys giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking, what I was going through and what led me to that. I just appreciate you guys holding onto me as a family.”
