LAST NIGHT, KIM Kardashian came to her husband’s defence after people criticised his support of Donald Trump.

After Kanye described Donald Trump as his “brother”, and someone who shares a similar “dragon energy” to him, Kim slammed media outlets questioning Kanye’s mental health.

Chance The Rapper was another of Kanye’s close friends who chose to defend him. Writing on Twitter “Black people don’t have to be democrats”, Chance also said that Kanye’s in a good state of mental health.

 Other celebs are not so supportive.

Snoop Dogg took to Instagram to say “That’s mighty white of you Kanye! N****a if u don’t snap out of it Get Out part 2.”

Macy Gray shared her new hat with the world:

Kanye’s close friends John Legend and Chrissy Teigen both unfollowed him on Twitter after his comments.

John Legend did not address Kanye himself, but instead wrote this thread:

John ended his thread by writing:

I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future. But artists can’t be blind to the truth.

Singer Janelle Monae also commented on the situation:

While promoting her new album Dirty Computer, she said:

I believe in free thinking, but I don’t believe in free thinking at the expense of the oppressed. If your free thinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to oppress black people or minorities, I think it’s bullshit and it’s not OK.

Get Out director Jordan Peele echoed Snoop Dogg’s sentiment:

Kris Jenner was more concerned about the fact that People magazine claimed that Kanye’s home was worth $20 million.

According to Does Follow, many of Kanye’s closest friends and family members have unfollowed him on Twitter.

These include Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Harry Styles as well as Kylie, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian.

Popcrave have also said that Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande are among celebs that unfollowed Kanye this week.

In contrast, Kris Jenner only just followed him. Maybe she’s got something up her sleeve.
