We meet again to talk about Kanye West, just as you read it, this man feeds on bad decisions and ridiculous is his middle name. After starring in a month full of controversies, the 45-year-old rapper does not let anyone rest with his strange and dangerous ideas, since this time he once again gave his opinion on an extremely sensitive topic.
Ye, as he decided to be called a few years ago, appeared in the podcast Drink Champs, where he stated that George Floyd, one of the best-known faces of the Black Lives Matter movement, He did not die of strangulation by an illegal key at the hands of the Minneapolis, Minnesota police, but died of fentanyl abuse, a synthetic drug similar to morphine.
It should be remembered that Floyd passed away imploring them to let him breathe, since the policeman, Derek Chauvin, suffocated him by pressing his knee against his neck for almost nine minutes. For this reason, the phrase “I can’t breathe” it became the banner of the anti-racist struggle with the greatest symbolism and strength to demand justice for the victims of police brutality.
However, even with all the evidence in the case, including a video that went around the world, the interpreter of Praise God He did not hesitate to ignore any type of logic and speak for the sake of talking, alluding to the fact that the events of that disastrous May 25, 2020 had occurred differently.

It wasn’t even on his neck like that.
Given the unfortunate event, the civil rights activist and lawyer Lee Merritt announced through his account Twitter that George Floyd’s family was affected by the false statements, so they are considering starting a legal battle against Kanye West.
While one cannot defame the dead, the family of #GeorgeFloyd is considering suit for Kanye’s false statements about the manner of his death.
Claiming Floyd died from fentanyl not the brutality established criminally and civilly undermines & diminishes the Floyd family’s fight.

While you can’t smear the dead, George Floyd’s family is considering suing over Kanye’s false statements about the manner of his death. Claiming that Floyd died of fentanyl and not established criminal and civil brutality undermines and diminishes the Floyd family’s fight.
Kanye West’s mental health issues are constantly talked about to justify what he does. However, minimizing the actions of a person who uses hate speech, disguised as freedom of expression, is highly dangerous and should not be excused as easily as it is commonly done.
