West, who now goes by Ye, has been a controversial figure on social media since he returned from a year-long hiatus in April. Since then he has said everything from announce his admiration and loyalty to President Donald Trump to call for the abolition of the 13th amendment.

The backlash against him has been severe, with many diagnosing the rapper as being in the proverbial sunken place. But the situation peaked last week after his controversial rant on SNL‘s season premiere.

After cameras cut off, social media footage showed Ye ending the show with a lengthy speech in support of  Trump.

“It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago,” he said. “We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all their policies.”

West continued his defense of Trump by claiming the president “is a builder. And when I said I’m running in 2020, all my smart friends talked so much s— about me. And when I saw that man win, I said, ‘See, I told you. I could have been there.’”
