Lana Del Rey called out Kanye West for his “narcissism” and support for Trump last night after the rapper posted a photo of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat on Instagram. In the caption, West claimed that the headgear, a signature piece of Trump merchandise, “represents good and America being whole again.”
He also proposed to “abolish the 13th amendment,” which formally ended slavery. Back in May, he also brought up slavery during an appearance on TMZ by saying it “sounds like a choice.” He later apologized for the controversial statement.
Del Rey—who performed at West’s wedding to Kim Kardashian and whose song played during their engagement—was not having it. She replied with a comment on his post:
Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture.
I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of Grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism—none of which would be a talking point if we weren’t speaking about the man leading our country.
If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the p*ssy just because he’s famous—then you need an intervention as much as he does—something so many narcissists will never get because there just isn’t enough help for the issue.
Message sent with concern that will never be addressed.
“There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue,” he wrote. “The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying.”
