In an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday night, a world-famous rapper and cultural icon gave America a glimpse into the hatred of dissenting opinion that exists in show business while defending his support for President Donald J. Trump.

“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” Kanye West told Jimmy Kimmel. “And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over; I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, like, we can only be Democrats and all.”

In April, West created controversy by posing for selfie in a Make America Great Again hat.

“I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were,” West said.

Imagine the amount of intolerance, bigotry and hatred that would cause someone of West’s stature to be afraid to declare his support for a political candidate? That is Hollywood.

“And what it represented to me is not about policies — because I’m not a politician like that,” he continued. “But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me.”
