Billionaire fashion mogul and rapper Kanye West opened up to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday, explaining the horrific treatment he says he received from Hollywood and entertainment elites over his support for former President Donald Trump.

West even says that his life and livelihood were threatened.

“My so-called friends, slash handlers around me told me, like, if I said that I like Trump, that my career will be over, that my life would be over. They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that. They threatened my life,” he said.

“They put my life, they basically said that I would be killed for wearing the hat. I had someone call me last night and said, ‘Anybody wearing a White Lives Matter shirt is going to be green-lit,’ and that means that they’re going to beat them up if they wear it,” West explained.

“I’m like, you know, green light me then.” He added, “Hollywood bullied me into biting my tongue about my support for Trump.”

West also spoke about his pro-life views:

CARLSON: So you just came from Paris Fashion Week, you just landed and the lanyard is still on from it and there’s a photograph on it, what is that?

WEST: It’s a photograph of a baby’s ultrasound.

CARLSON: You designed that? Why, what does that mean?

WEST: It just represents life. I’m pro-life.

CARLSON: So you wear it as a badge, what kind of response do you get? And amen, I agree.

WEST: I don’t care about people’s response as I care about the fact that there is more Black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point.

50% of Black death in America is abortion. I don’t care about people’s responses, I perform for an audience of one and that is God.

He also talked about the U.S. obesity crisis:

“When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots – that’s a term for – it’s like telemarketer callers, like on Instagram, they attack her for losing weight, because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal, when it’s actually unhealthy,” he said.

“Let’s get aside from the fact whether it’s fashion and vogue, which it’s not – or if someone thinks it’s attractive, to each his own. It’s actually clinically unhealthy. And for people to promote that, it’s demonic,” he said.
