On Sunday (July 19), video circulated of the presidential hopeful yelling at a Black woman in the crowd. The woman, whose name is Iesha, explained it started after she asked a question about Ye’s plans for gun reform – and it was all downhill from there.
“Hey y’all it’s Iesha, the girl who was getting yelled at by Kanye at the Donald Trump [cough] I mean Kanye West rally today in North Charleston,” she begins in a clip uploaded to Twitter. “He allowed people to come on stage to ask questions. I was one of those people selected. We went up there. He let numerous people go before me and at the last five minutes, he allowed me to ask my question on gun reform in which he did not answer. He just spewed out random facts and bragged about himself.”
The video includes a clip of her question to Kanye West and a portion of his response, which focuses on the fact he’s allowed to shoot guns at his ranch in Wyoming.
“Aisha’s comment is on gun violence in the United States,” Ye tells the crowd after Iesha spoke. “I live on a 4,000 acre ranch and I can shoot AR-15’s all day, day, day, day – facts – without going to jail and it feels weird because I grew up in Chicago.
