So evidently, Kanye West is bored with ranting about leather sweatpants, Fendi, Andy Warhol and whatever other random topic that finds itself in his rants every other minute and decided to bring up old ish. While on Hot97, Kanye West said, “I could use my voice, but what happens when y’all don’t buy no other albums? Then people going to say, ‘Oh he’s like Arsenio Hall and he was turning up too much and now you’re fired.’ But when you got money, can’t nobody fire you.”
During a Grammys press conference, Arsenio responded to Kanye and said, “Like usual, Kanye’s premise confuses the facts. Therefore everything else has to be thrown out. I just left my show. The White man didn’t do nothing this time, bruh. Save that for when the White man do do something.”
Read him Arsenio! Because sometimes, Kanye needs to be read. Arsenio also shared his disdain for Yeezy’s song, “New Slaves,” “I hate the word ‘slave’ used in songs,” Hall said in the press conference clip. “The [expletive] outta here. Do you know what that word is? Do you know what that word is all about? Nobody can use ‘slave’ in pop culture. If you’re in the music business, you shouldn’t [expletive] with that word. Too serious an era. Too serious a problem in America. There is no one that’s free to move around this country that should use the word ‘slave.’ Do you know what it meant to slaves?”
This is the man who chose to sell Confederate flags at his concerts. Something tells me Kanye’s view on Black history isn’t quite clear.

Sadly, doesn't matter by whose hand she died. Unjustified arrested set the outcome in motion. The state murdered her. #JusticeForSandraBland
