Chris Evans Slams Kanye West Over His ‘Terrifying’ 13th Amendment Comments

Over the weekend, Kanye West tweeted a photo of himself sporting a MAGA hat with a caption that is more than questionable.

Check out the Tweet in question.

In the Tweet, Kanye referred to his “Make America Great Again” hat and stated,

“this represents good and America becoming whole again.  We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs.  We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love”

But Captain America himself (Chris Evans) was having none of Ye’s words.

The MCU star responded to Kanye’s tweet.

Evans’ rebuttal stated,

“There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying.”

In his Tweet, Evans alluded to Kanye’s statement about “abolish[ing] the 13th amendment”. 

For those racking their brains for any remnants of Civics class, the 13th amendment states,

“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

Yep, apparently Kanye in favor of abolishing the amendment that abolished slavery.

Kanye is famous for his support for President Trump.

In his recent Saturday Night Live appearance, Kanye was even caught wearing his MAGA hat and rambling about his support of Trump. 

His unexpected rant was cut from the show for time, but part of it aired live:

More was shared by Chris Rock:

Kanye said many things including his take on “the Democratic plan”.

“It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”

He also touched upon Trump’s racism.

“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. 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 they policies.”

Kanye’s behavior has people shaking their heads.

If his political views aren’t a reflection of Kanye’s questionable judgment, his Perrier bottle costume certainly was.
