The rapper-turned-designer himself remained defiant over his 2018 controversial comment despite facing backlash, saying, 'I feel stupid to have to say out loud that I know that being put on the boat was - but also I'm not backing down.'

AceShowbiz - Wack 100 took issue with Kanye West's controversial remark in the past. The manager of Blueface wondered why the "Donda" artist hasn't been canceled for saying "slavery was a choice" four years ago.

Wack shared his thought through an Instagram post. "There was no cancelation movement when Ye said 'Slavery was a choice'?" he asked, while adding in the caption, "Maybe Our #Pain doesn't affect the #Gain."

Kanye made the comment when speaking to TMZ Live in May 2018. "You hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, that was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all?" he argued at that time.

The statement unsurprisingly upset a lot of people. Despite catching a huge flak, the ex-husband of Kim Kardashian remained defiant. In an interview with The New York Times, he explained, "I said the idea of sitting in something for 400 years sounds - sounds - like a choice to me, I never said it's a choice."

"I never said slavery itself - like being shackled in chains - was a choice," the emcee further stressed. "That's why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works."

Admitting that he felt "awesome" in the aftermath because he was able to learn from the experience, he also explained that he felt an affinity with Nat Turner, the slave who led a rebellion to free his countrymen from the shackles of slavery.

Ye went on to emphasize, "I feel stupid to have to say out loud that I know that being put on the boat was - but also I'm not backing down, bro." He continued, "What I will do is I'll take responsibility for the fact that I allowed my voice to be used back to back in ways that were not protective of it when my voice means too much."
