POLITICS | Kanye West Posts Series Of Rambling Late Night Tweets

LOS ANGELES – Rapper Kanye West posted a series of tweets late on Monday claiming his wife was trying to have him locked up on medical grounds, comparing himself to Nelson Mandela and suggesting the movie ‘Get Out’ was based on his own life.

The late night flurry of activity on West’s official Twitter account – the bulk of which was deleted a few hours later – came a day after he launched his U.S. presidential campaign with rambling rally in Charleston, South Carolina.

At the event, he tearfully referenced a decision he said he made with wife Kim Kardashian not to abort a pregnancy.

‘Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday’, West said in one of the tweets that was tater deleted.

‘If I get locked up like Mandela Ya’ll will know why’, he wrote in another tweet, also subsequently deleted, referencing the man who became South Africa’s first Black president after being imprisoned for nearly three decades under apartheid.

In another tweets, later deleted, West appealed directly Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, to contact him at his ranch in Wyoming.

West’s record company UMusic and a representative for Kardashian and Jenner did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

West, 43, a former supporter of President Donald Trump, has left voters befuddled over whether his campaign is genuine or a publicity stunt to help sell albums and merchandise.

He later tweeted that his new album, DONDA, would be released on Friday.

West referenced ‘Get Out’, a horror film about race relations, in a few of the tweets: ‘Everybody knows the movie get out is about me’.

Several Twitter followers asked the rapper if he was well.

In response to a tweet asking him to ‘Save Kanye’, Tesla Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk tweeted: ‘We talked about an hour ago. He seems fime’.

Musk earlier this month tweeted his support for West’s presidential bid.
