This formula might sound vaguely familiar: Controversial topic + inappropriate Kanye comment + angry outcry from the public and fellow celebrities = all-caps apology and maybe an explanation. So far, we’re stalled at three out of four. Last night, Kanye West was feeling particularly inspired on the topic of abortion and wanted to share his thoughts via Twitter. Queue the inevitable outcries from the Twitter nation, and even an outraged tweet from Lily Allen.
Kanye posted the following tweet:
With the following citation: “It ain’t happen to me but I know people.”
Which triggered the following response from Lily Allen: @kanyewest never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood. This is wrong on so many levels.
It’s possible that Kanye and Justin Bieber (his new “beat protege“) discussed the teen star’s misconstrued abortion comments in Rolling Stone during their recent studio session. Ye simply wanted to put his feelings in print, thus avoiding any misplaced question mark issues when shit hit the fan.
