As most stars are embracing the #MuteRKelly trend, Kanye West made comments that appeared to support the disgraced star and Kim Kardashian has now stepped in to clear the air.
The reality mogul took to Twitter to defend her 41-year-old husband after he found himself embroiled in yet another controversy for seemingly giving R Kelly’s music the okay.
Kim claimed Kanye’s recent statements were ‘taken out of context’ in a series of tweets on Monday.
The 38-year-old tweeted:
I’m going to nip this in the bud right now.Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are canceling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect.
Adding: ‘The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.‘
She followed these statement up with a second post.
‘I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior,’ Kim wrote.
‘My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.‘
It was during a recent video that Kris Jenner livestreamed from Yeezus’ Sunday Service, that Kanye made the questionable comments.
They just gonna pull up full documentaries on him. Then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary
Ye said in the video.
Many took his statement about ‘documentaries on him’ to be in reference to Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries which revisited the 52-year-old’s sordid history of s3xual assault allegations.
Kanye continued: ‘We can all enjoy all their music all we want.‘
It was that particular sentence that many on social media took offence to.
In the clip, he then seemed to compare Michael Jackson and R Kelly to Leonardo da Vinci.
