Kanye West wants the people who call him crazy to know that it “hurts” his feelings.
During part two of his sit-down interview on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, the controversial rapper said, “They keep on using the ‘Oh he’s crazy, he’s crazy’ thing. And it hurts my feelings when people say that.”
“It hurts my feelings that people can ask, ‘Hey, are you okay?’”
West, 45, has been a hot topic since he chose to wear “White Lives Matter” shirts during his YZY SZN 9 fashion show in Paris. But his latest remarks come after backlash for a tweet aimed at Boosie Badazz (formerly Lil Boosie) after the fellow rapper slammed ‘Ye over the shirts.
“Don’t speak on me, Lil Boosie speak to me,” he tweeted in an all-caps message, which has since been deleted, PEOPLE reported.
West added, “Come smack me or come shoot me. I’m the one that got bullied by the entire Black celebrity community. Now I’m back to shoot the school up.”
West has been vocal about his journey with bipolar disorder. In a 2019 cover story for Vogue, his ex Kim Kardashian said that although he has accepted that he is bipolar, he has chosen not to treat the disorder with pharmaceuticals.
In part one of West’s interview with Carlson, the Yeezy mogul doubled down on his decision to wear the shirt, saying, “I do certain things from a feeling, I just channel the energy. It just feels right. It’s using a gut instinct, a connection with God, and just brilliance,” West explained, adding that it’s “obvious” that white lives matter.
