Kanye West is making headlines again after pissing off a lot of people. He is currently being criticized by several medical institutions for using the R word to describe US President Joe Biden.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Kanye West is being criticized for using the R-word.
Jordan Kough, executive director of the National Down’s Syndrome Congress, criticized Kanye West while talking to TMZ about the rapper’s use of the r-word.
He claimed that the nickname hated people suffering from a disability. He also expressed his displeasure at the way West was proudly embracing, knowing how insulting it was.
Kough also said on behalf of the NDSC that the r-term dehumanizes people with disabilities.
He also encouraged the 45-year-old rapper and other influential people to recognize the power behind their words.
Meanwhile, Marlene Sallo, managing director of the National Disability Rights Network, also shared her feelings about West’s behavior.
She pointed out that people appreciated West when it was announced that his bipolar disorder was his superpower. But the same people are now outraged at his use of the term ‘old and disgusting’.
She also argued that West, now named Yes, should apologize for her actions.
Also, the National Down Syndrome Society criticized the rapper Donda.
Kanye West hung up on President Joe Biden.
Kanye West sat down with Piers Morgan for an interview on TalkTV UK on Wednesday.
But the interview soon became controversial when West called Joe Biden a ‘damned regression’ for not seeking the opinion of Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.
During an interview, he said, ‘1% of the world is in power, and 99% of the world is the audience.’
He added, ‘It is a world in which the ideology that 1% of the world is a unified country must be shared’.

The father of four went on to say, ‘Here is a clear conclusion. Biden doesn’t listen to Elon Musk. The President of the United States is not meeting with Elon Musk.’
Then he said, ‘That’s a fucking bastard. I know I shouldn’t say that Biden. But that’s a damn ret****ed Biden.’
Several figures have accused West of using derogatory words, including Howard Stern and Ari Emanuel, CEO of William Morris Endeavor.
