Kanye West Cares About Gay People

Apparently, Kanye West’s egomania hasn’t gotten so bad that he doesn’t think about other people on occasion.

The sometimes hot-headed rapper indulged his habit of pontificating toward the end of his Madison Square Garden show on Tuesday, condemning homophobia.

“Open your minds. Be accepting of different people and let people be who they are,” West declared. “You know how many people came to me calling me gay cause I wear my jeans the fresh way? Or because I said, ‘Hey, dude, how you gonna say fag right in front of a gay dude’s face and act like that’s okay?’ That shit is disrespectful.”

West continued, “I’ve flown across the world y’all, and I’ve come back here to tell you—open your minds and live a happier life.”

Kudos, Kanye! A stirring sentiment, and for once, you didn’t make your audience wait two hours to hear it.

Hopefully, a certain gargantuan-chinned talk-show host was paying attention.
