Kanye West wore lanyard with an image of a fetus in Carlson interview

appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on Thursday wearing a lanyard featuring an ultrasound image of a fetus.

He told Carlson he was wearing the lanyard to express that he is ‘pro-life’.

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

‘I care about the fact there’s more black babies being aborted than born in ,’ he said.

West may have been relying on a compiled by New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to support his claim that more black babies are aborted than born in New York City.

There were around 5,000 more abortions than births of black babies in 2013 according to the official city report. 

The interview came after West stirred up controversy earlier this week hosting a Paris Fashion Week event during which he wore the lanyard and also posed with Candace Owens wearing ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirts.

His appearance on Carlson’s show is the latest in a series of politically charged acts in which he expressed solidarity with the former president Donald Trump.

West said during the interview that ’50 percent of black death in America is abortion’

It was  this year that around 40 percent of women who get abortions in the US are black while black women account for less than 15 percent of the country’s female population.

The 2013 report on pregnancy outcomes found that in 2013 black women terminated around 29,007 pregnancies, accounting for almost 42 percent of all abortions in the city. That same year, black women in the city gave birth to 24,108 babies.

The Carlson interview aired at 8pm EDT on Fox News and came just days after 45-year-old West was condemned by fans and the fashion industry for the Paris show, leading Adidas to put their partnership with West ‘under review’.

At the very beginning of Carlson’s interview with West in his Los Angeles studio he addresses the peculiar lanyard, asking: ‘What is that?’

‘It’s a photograph of a baby’s ultrasound,’ said West. ‘It just represents life. I’m pro-life,’ he said.

Kanye told Carlson that his political attitudes developed when Trump was in office. West suggested that during that period he caved in to social pressures forcing him not to vocalize support for the ex-president.

He told Carlson that his ex-wife Kim Kardashian had a close friendship with the Clintons, which the political couple exploited to control his expression.

West was asked if he felt like he was ever being manipulated by political forces through his wife.

‘Attempted manipulation, me not saying I liked Trump was a form of manipulation,’ he said.

West went on to address the accusations that he is crazy.

‘We’re in a battle with the media and the jokes are not working. This whole «Ye is crazy,» it doesn’t work,’ he said. 

West explained to Carlson that his father is an educated ex-black panther who endorsed his decision to wear the ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt.

‘After talking to them and really sitting with Jared and sitting with Josh and finding out other pieces of information, I was like, wow, these guys might have really been holding Trump back, being very much a handler,’ said West.

‘It just represents life. I’m pro-life,’ said West, when asked about his design. 

Carlson told him: ‘You wear it like a badge.’

‘I don’t care about people’s responses but I care about the fact that there are more black babies being aborted than born in at this point,’ West said.

‘That 50 per cent of black death in America is abortion. I really don’t care about people’s response to that. I perform for an audience of one and that is God. ‘

‘They do’: Kanye West doubled down on his ‘White Lives Matter’ slogan on Wednesday and explained that when people ask why he made the shirt he replies that it’s because ‘They do’ 

Shocking the fans: Ye, 45, first wore the ‘White Lives Matter’ design at his surprise Yeezy fashion show in Paris on Monday

West stood by the ‘White Lives Matter’ slogan he wore on a T-shirt at his surprise Yeezy fashion show — even though his spokesman, Jason Lee, quit in protest.

Lee wrote on Instagram that West was ‘gaslighting black people and empowering white supremacy.’ 

The Donda rapper, 45, posted a photo of the long-sleeved black shirt to his Instagram on Wednesday with the caption: ‘Here’s my latest response when people ask me why I made a tee that says white lives matter… THEY DO.’

During the Carlson interview, West also called out politicians, including ‘friend’ Trump, for using Black people to boost their approval ratings.

Recounting a phonecall he shared with Trump, West said: ‘One of the things he said to me is, »Kanye, you’re my friend. When you came to the White House, my Black approval rating went up 40 per cent».

West said: ‘For politicians, all Black people are worth is an approval rating… The Democrats feel that they don’t owe us anything, and Republicans feel like they don’t owe us anything.’

He also told Carlson he was shocked to learn that ex-wife Kim had a close relationship with the Clintons — close enough that they were ‘just a phone call away’, Kanye explained in the exclusive interview. 

‘Close enough to say »Tell Kanye to say this,» or close enough to use our platforms to push vaccinations,’ he continued. 

Carlson told his viewers that Kanye was surprised to learn after his divorce that ‘his former wife had a close and secretive relationship with the Clintons, and that they were working on her to influence him to read from the script.’

‘It was interesting, friend of mine told me that Kris and Kim had called him because he had influence inside the black community,’ Kanye said. ‘And had called him to say, to get him to influence people to take the vaccination. 

‘And I don’t have opinion on that I just wanted to state that as a statement. It was wild that I didn’t know how close my own wife was to the Clintons. I didn’t know, I didn’t realize it at the time.’

Carlson asked Kanye if he felt at times like he was being manipulated by political forces through his wife.

‘Attempted manipulation, me not saying I liked Trump was a form of manipulation,’ he said. 

Meanwhile, one of the only famous friends coming to the defense of Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband at the moment is Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, who called the musician a ‘free thinker’ and says his message was ‘misconstrued.’

Diddy, 52, said ‘My boy is a super, super, super free thinker,’ in an interview on The Breakfast Club on Wednesday. 

 ‘And a lot of times, what he means is, like, misconstrued, you know what I’m saying?’ the record executive added. 

When host Charlamagne, 44, interjected to say, ‘You gotta stop making excuses for him,’ the mogul replied: ‘No, no, I’m not making excuses, I’m just sayin’ if he did it, that’s the way he thinks.’
