Chance The Rapper Apologizes After Defending Kanye West’s Support of Trump

"My fault yo."

Is it too late now to say sorry?

As if Kanye West’s pro-Trump stream of consciousness on Twitter wasn’t enough, Chance The Rapper came under fire for defending his idol by tweeting, “Black people don’t have to be democrats.”

The Chicago rapper realized he stepped in some serious sh*t after his mentions were literally flooded with backlash.

Then he really lost it when Donald Trump thanked him and Kanye in a tweet for opening the black community’s eyes.

At this point, it became painfully obvious that Chance needed to either say something to clear his name or go down with the ship. The decision was a no-brainer. In a statement issued via Twitter, Chance clarified that he was only coming to Kanye’s defense as a friend, not showing loyalty to Trump.

“I didn’t speak up because I agree with what Kanye had to say or ’cause I fuck with Trump. I did it because I wanted to help my friend and ’cause I felt like I was being used to attack him,” he wrote. “I’d never support anyone who has made a career out of hatred, racism, and discrimination.” He continued, “So let my apology be seen in my future works, and let me make up for my poorly timed comments with immediate action and advocacy for those who need it most.” See the full apology below.

Chance has always challenged Trump about his portrayal of Chicago’s gun violence. When the President threatened to “send in the Feds” to Chicago in response to its rampant violence, Chance told The Undefeated, “I’m tired of n—–s talkin’ about Chicago like it’s a Third World country…. It sounds like he was announcin’ he was going to war with Chicago.”

Welp, thanks for clearing that up for us, Chano!
