Questlove Shares His Views About Kanye West With ‘Pablo’-Inspired T-Shirt [PHOTO]
Kanye West’s support for President Trump caused a mass exodus of celebrities to unfollow him on Twitter, including Rihanna, Drake and Nicki Minaj. Recently, another prominent musician expressed his objection to West with a very creative T-shirt.
At Friday night’s (April 27) Concert for Peace and Justice concert in Montgomery, Ala., The Roots drummer Questlove was spotted wearing a The Life of Pablo-inspired tee that read, “Kanye West Doesn’t Care About Black People.” Surrounding the slogan is the sentence “This is an Alt-Right Dream.”
The phrase is in reference to West’s unforgettable reaction to President George W. Bush’s mishandling of relief to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Rolling Stone senior writer Jamil Smith captured the photo of Questo wearing the T-shirt and posted it on his Instagram page. "After [Questlove] showed his shirt, someone nearby remarked that 'Kanye cares about record sales.' I can’t say that I disagree with that, or the t-shirt," he wrote in the caption.
There's no word if Questlove heard Kanye West's latest single "Ye Vs. the People" where he offers his defense on why he supports President Trump.
Nevertheless, fans on Twitter had mixed reactions to West's new tune. Some people felt the track is a brilliant promotional move to get people interested in his upcoming political album. However, there are several critics who are not impress with 'Ye and refused to hear any explanation from the veteran producer.
"This “Ye Vs. The People” song is fucking terrible and serves as maybe the 10th reminder to me this week to always kill your idols," tweeted one person.
