‘You’ve put our kids in dan­ger’

Heat (UK) - - This Week | We’re Obsessed With... - He can’t stop be­ing con­tro­ver­sial

An­other day, an­other con­tro­ver­sial Kanye West tweet. Last week, the rap­per posted a snap of him­self wear­ing Trump’s in­fa­mous “Make Amer­ica Great Again” slo­gan hat, and wrote, “This rep­re­sents good and Amer­ica be­com­ing whole again. We will no longer out­source to other coun­tries. We will build fac­to­ries here in Amer­ica and cre­ate jobs. We will pro­vide jobs for all who are free from pris­ons as we abol­ish the 13th Amend­ment.”

The 13th Amend­ment abol­ished slav­ery in 1865, and Kanye’s com­ments caused out­rage on­line, with many other stars weigh­ing in, call­ing his thoughts “frus­trat­ing” and “ab­so­lutely ter­ri­fy­ing”. And, an in­sider tells us, he’s also fac­ing the wrath of his wife. “Kim is fu­ri­ous with him. The po­lit­i­cal cli­mate in the US is so heated right now that any­one can be at­tacked for hav­ing an opin­ion that is con­tro­ver­sial, and Kim feels Kanye is de­lib­er­ately try­ing to piss peo­ple off.”

The in­sider also says the 37 year old is wor­ried that her hus­band could be putting his chil­dren – North, five, Saint, two, and eight-month-old Chicago – in a dan­ger­ous po­si­tion. “Kim is wor­ried some sick weirdo could seek re­venge on Kanye and try to pun­ish him by at­tack­ing his fam­ily. She’s blasted him for putting their chil­dren in dan­ger by say­ing these con­tro­ver­sial re­marks.”

The day be­fore his 13th Amend­ment tweet, Kanye, 41, per­formed on US sketch show Satur­day Night Live, where he went on an­other pro-trump rant – which was not broad­cast – and also re­it­er­ated his pledge to run for Pres­i­dent in 2020.

Our source adds, “Kim stood back­stage in dis­be­lief, and im­me­di­ately start­ing pan­ick­ing about the back­lash he was go­ing to re­ceive.” n
