Despite receiving backlash for promoting the message, he has doubled down on his position, adding in an Instagram post on Tuesday: “Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam now it’s over you’re welcome.”

He also took part in an interview on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, where he went into depth about the situation. Ultimately he said the matter was one of faith. “I don’t care about what people’s response is, but I care about the fact that there are more black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point. That 50% of black death in America is abortion. So I really don’t care about people’s response to that. I perform for an audience of one, and that’s God,” West told Carlson. West later added, “God is preparing us for the real battles. We are in a battle with the media. The majority of the media has a godless agenda, and they are like, ‘Ye is crazy.’ They don’t work because the media have also watched travesties happen, even specifically to me. Just watch it and act like it wasn’t happening and they stay quiet about it.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
