Kanye West claims ‘22.5 million black babies’ were aborted in the last 50 years after clarifying previous comments.
The star shared a figure in an attempt to back up his beliefs on abortion after previously claiming he and wife Kim Kardashian-West were thinking of ‘aborting’ eldest daughter North during a presidential rally. ‘Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years,’ he tweeted. The Stronger rapper also shared a link to an article that explained that Planned Parenthood of Greater New York is ditching the name of founder Margaret Sanger from its lower Manhattan clinic.
Kanye’s tweets come a few hours after he returned to the platform to slam those who judged him for crying.
‘I cried at the thought of aborting my firstborn and everyone was so concerned about me… I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject,’ he tweeted earlier on Friday. Kanye added: ‘There is a tactic of 4 D’s… Distract Discredit Dismiss To Destroy… I am quite alright… Take a second and think about what is being projected here.’ The rapper’s tweet came despite reports that his recent behavior has left friends, family and fans concerned.
The artist recently accused wife Kim of trying to ‘lock him up’ and compared his life to the movie Get Out, before then sharing a worrying rant on Twitter, where he claimed he has been trying to divorce wife of six years, Kim, for the last two years. Kim then spoke out about Kanye’s behavior and mental health and acknowledged he was going through a bipolar episode. The couple – who have been married since 2014 – were pictured having an intense conversation in their car days later.
