American rapper, T.I called on Kanye West for his recent statement at the first campaign rally in South Carolina for the presidential hopeful.
During his first campaign rally, Kanye West said “Harriet Tubman never really liberated the slaves, but he only took the slaves to work for other Whites.”
Tubman was an American abolitionist who escaped and made some 13 missions before her death to rescue about 70 people who had been slaves.
His comment has since stirred reactions from Americans on social media.
Reacting on his Instagram account, T.I asked Kanye to seek medical attention or offer a reasonable reason for Monday ‘s comment.
His post read: “No we cannot let you do that Ye. “What WE NOT gon do is slander nor disrespect the legacy of our heroic Queen Harriet Tubman by telling falsities in an attempt to discredit the contributions she made to Liberate our people because you buggin!According to him, Kanye went too far and blacks would not take any disrespect from him.
”This is absolutely too far, I truly hope you either have a logical explanation for all this or get the medical attention you so desperately need Bro. I say this with love and sincerity.”
