Kanye West has defended his decision to perform alongside Marilyn Manson and DaBaby last week, while criticising the Me Too movement.
West, spoke out about the controversy surrounding his decision to perform alongside Manson and DaBaby at his Sunday Service event, in an interview on The Drunk Champs Podcast yesterday,
“All the Me Too… like, when I sit next to Marilyn Manson and DaBaby right after both of them got cancelled, for five songs, you know, it’s like they can’t cancel us all. They’ll hit you with the accusations of somebody who you was with 10 years ago,” he said.
“It’s power and politics. You know, power-hungry maniacs and just control. This is 1984 mind control we’re in,” he added.
Manson, whose real name is Brain Warner, has been accused of sexual assault and abuse by multiple women over the past year. The singer has denied all the allegations, calling them “horrible distortions of reality”.
