Charlamagne insists that the public is "not being empathetic" enough.
Author and radio show host Charlamagne Tha God recently stopped by BuzzFeed's Profile to discuss a myriad of topics. During the discussion, Charlamagne spoke candidly about mental health going into detail about his personal experiences. When controversial Chicago rapper Kanye West was mentioned, Charlamagne shared an interesting perspective commenting that several of Kanye's current and former supporters were "hypocrites" and "wack" for seemingly turning their backs on West at a time where he appears to be his most fragile.
"I think we’re all wack and we’re all hypocrites," he told Audie Cornish, the show's host. "I think we all contradict ourselves because we see a guy sitting there, screaming that he may have mental health issues, but everyone wants to cancel him," he continued. "They’re not being empathetic to the fact that he really may be going through some things." He jokingly added, "Yo, I think everybody supporting Donald Trump is dealing with some type of mental health issue."
Revealing more about his observations, Charlemagne shared, "I can't even take anything that he's saying serious. He's clearly telling us that something is wrong. So it's like, why are we putting so much stock in anything that's coming out of his mouth when he's telling us something is wrong?"
