Kanye West has gone off on a Twitter rant, calling out his wife Kim Kardashian and mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, for once trying to lock him up.
In a series of tweets he shared, the rapper not only accused Kim and Kris Jenner of trying to lock him up, he also compared his life to the movie Get Out (a movie about an African-American man who is brought to his white girlfriend’s family home and uncovers a series of disturbing details about them).
Kanye West also called out Kris Jenner over the way she handled his Kim Kardashian’s sex tape and Playboy shoot.
“Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like in the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday,” referring to his comments about North West during his first campaign rally over the weekend.
“Kris, don’t play with me. You and that calmye are not allowed around my children, ya’ll tried to lock me up,”
West wrote in one tweet, seemingly referring to his mother-in-law and her boyfriend Corey Gamble. A few minutes later, he added, “Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor.”
“If I get locked up like Mandela, ya‘ll will know why,” West wrote in another tweet.
“Everybody knows the movie ‘Get Out’ is about me,” he also wrote.
In the tweets which were deleted one hour after it was shared, Kanye also alleged that “NBC locked up Bill Cosby”, seemingly in support of the convicted sex offender. This is the second time Kanye has publicly suggested the disgraced US actor and comedian is innocent, after he infamously tweeted “BILL COSBY INNOCENT” in 2016.
Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault and sentenced to three to ten years in prison in September 2018.
Kanye also claimed that Shia LaBeouf “never showed up” to a supposed photo shoot for his Yeezy partnership with Gap, and said Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour looked at him “like [he] was crazy” for collaborating with the brand.
