Kanye West catch the heat for using the r-word to describe President Biden …condemned by people who defend people with Down syndrome and disabilities.
Ye lashed out at Biden in his interview with Piers Morgansaying POTUS is “f***r-word” to not look for input from Elon Muskand now the epithet arouses indignation.
Jordan Kough, executive director of the National Down Syndrome Congress, told TMZ … the R-word is abhorrent to all people with disabilities, and it’s very disappointing to see Kanye embrace it. Worse still, Kough thinks Ye knows this is very offensive.
Kanye West calls President Biden ‘F***ing’ R-Word, says he’s allowed to say it
The NDSC says the r-word strips the humanity of people with disabilities … and Kough encourages Kanye, and others with big platforms, to consider the power of their words.
At the National Disability Rights Network, Kanye is losing tons of support. Executive Director Marlene Sallo says disability advocates appreciated when Kanye once said his bipolar disorder was his superpower, but now those same people are super upset to see Ye use an “obsolete and hateful” word.
The NDRN goes even further… calling on Kanye to apologize. good luck with that.
Ye is also being denounced by the National Down Syndrome Society… a representative tells us that the r-word has no place in public discourse, whether or not it is directed at someone with a disability.
As we reported, Kanye is on a tear against many groups… making a slew of antisemitic remarks … most recently during his conversation with Piers, when he said he only wanted to do “death con 3” the Jews who screwed him up.
And there is this… during this interviewKanye was more than happy to acknowledge that his opinions were racist.
