Ye is under fire.

Kanye West has attempted to clarify his comments after suggesting that the 13th Amendment in the US constitution, banning slavery, needs to be changed.

The controversial rapper, who previously claimed 400 years of slavery sounded like “a choice”, has further outraged fans by claiming the 13th Amendment is “slavery in disguise.”

Taking to Twitter on Sunday (1st October), the rapper said: “The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals.”

Kanye West then appeared to change his stance on the topic, tweeting: “not abolish but. Let’s amend the 13th amendment. We apply everyone’s opinions to our platforms.”

He then told TMZ that he hasn’t fully formed his views on the topic yet.

However when pressed on the topic by the publication, Kanye West then promised to explain himself during an appearance on TMZ Live on Monday.
