Kanye West expresses remorse for saying George Floyd died from fentanyl, not by the hands of police
It looks like Kanye West is learning his lessons amid major companies cutting ties with him. According to Consequence, the rapper ran into paparazzi on Friday (October 28) where he admitted he was wrong to question “the death of George Floyd” and that he “hurt my people.”
As he continues to face backlash and business isolation, Ye said he knows “what it feels to have a knee on my neck right now.”
“When I see that video as a Black person, it hurts my feelings,” Ye explained. “And I know that police do attack [sic] and that America is generally racist. And I understand that when we got to say Black Lives Matter, the idea of it made us feel good together as a people. Now, afterwards there was some things where the money went in order to push us to the Democratic vote.”
“So when I questioned the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people,” he added. “I want to apologize. Because God has showed me by what adidas is doing, by what the media is doing, I know what it feels to have a knee on my neck right now.
“So thank you God for humbling me and letting me know how it really felt. Because how could the richest Black men ever be humbled other than to be made to not be a billionaire in front of everyone off a comment.”
