John Legend and Kanye West seem to have a pretty close friendship.
They’ve worked together numerous times, their wives are BFFs, and John Legend is even signed to Kanye’s record label.
With all that in mind, John Legend has made no attempt to hide his disappointment over Kanye’s now infamous meeting at Trump Towers on Tuesday.
“I think Kanye was a publicity stunt,” he began.
“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country.
“I think the things he’s promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing.”
A bold and very brave statement. We admire his honesty though – far too many celebs are on the fence about so many issues for one reason or another, so it’s actually quite refreshing to hear someone speak so candidly.
What do you think Kanye will make of these comments? Is this the end of their friendship as we know it?
We’ll have to wait and see if and how Kanye responds…
