In an interview with TMZ West said the enslavement of African people was a "choice". "I'll combat your free thought with my free thought, because mine is grounded in the reality that I have been given, and the reality that I'm going to change, but I'm not going to do it by pretending that the enemies are on the same team as me".

CEO Kasper Rorsted distanced the company from the recent controversy but says adidas will continue to work with West as a designer, according to Reuters.

The 40-year-old was being interviewed by TMZ when he made the controversial statements which have since been pilloried by many news outlets.

In another Trumpian touch, West later took to Twitter to criticize media coverage of his remarks, saying he meant "we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years".

Trump honors crew of ill-fated Southwest Airlines Flight 1380
Flight 1380 was headed from NY to Dallas last month when an engine on the Boeing 737 exploded at 30,000 feet. She waved off accolades, saying it sometimes was easier to be the pilot rather than a passenger.

The poll is interesting as the increase in support comes at the same time hip-hop legend Kanye West publicly announced that he is a supporter of President Trump.

However, he did stress that "there clearly are some comments we don't support" and that he plans to discuss the matter with Kanye at some point.

These tweets have since been deleted.

It's true that dramatic album rollouts have become West's default release strategy, with the rapper prefacing his past three albums - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Yeezus and The Life of Pablo - with random song drops, elaborately staged TV performances and, as always, inflammatory Twitter dialogue.

"When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that", West told radio host Charlamagne tha God, adding that he was upset Obama invited other rappers to the White House. That's pretty much the party line at this stage.

Rapper T.I. has defended Kanye West's recent freakish behaviour, insisting the musician is "working through his own personal journey". 8,537 supporters signed the petition at press time.

"We need free thought now". But I do want to focus on the core, what the company's about is delivering the best sporting goods products in the world, and having our consumers buy those products, and that's what's happening right now in the marketplace.

Despite the backlash among liberals, it's clear that Kanye West is slowly beginning to win more black support for President Trump. I don't think he said it with the intention to hurt anybody.
