American rapper, songwriter and fashion designer Kanye West has stated his intentions to run for the President of the United States of America in 2024.
The rapper, who has legally changed his name to Ye, posted a video of his campaign logo to social media, alongside the caption Ye 24.
While this is hardly the first time West has run for President, it is worth noting that when he did so in 2020, his campaign spontaneously combusted with a mere 70,000 votes.
His latest claims come during a turbulent time for the 45-year-old, who faces several scandals as a result of his recent behaviour – including a series of anti-Semitic comments.
A month after Adidas cut ties with Kanye West, a group of former employees sent an open letter to the shoe company alleging it turned a blind eye to bullying and inappropriate behaviour from the rapper, reports ‘People’ magazine.
In a report published by ‘Rolling Stone’, excerpts from the letter were shared, along with detailed recollections of West’s alleged behaviour from former staff members. Many former staffers recalled an obsession with porn, several of them detailing stories where West, 45, would show staffers or job candidates porn on his phone or computer, according to the report.
In addition to showing graphic pictures and videos, the report states that there were allegedly several occasions where West showed staffers – and in one case, a job candidate – intimate photos and videos of his then-wife, Kim Kardashian.
