Kanye West was mercilessly mocked on Twitter with #IfSlaveryWereAChoice hashtag after he said 400 years of slavery “sounds like it was a choice.”

West then tried to clean it up by tweeting that  if it was 148 years ago, he would be like Harriet Tubman and Nat Turner. Um, Reconstruction took place 148 years ago in 1870.  Slavery was already abolished.

I have never seen someone get cancelled so fast after spouting off some offensive drivel like this fool. I hope his album is a flop. Slavery is nothing to make light of. It was not a choice.
