Someone collect Kanye, pls.

Kanye West has been involved in plenty of controversial moments as of late, and his more egregious act is arguably his highly insensitive and problematic commentary about slavery

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice," Kanye had told TMZ back in May. "Like you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all?!"

Since Chicago's WGCI is about that hardball question life, after asking 'Ye about his defense of President Trump, the radio station had the rapper address that "slavery is a choice" nonsense, too. 

And that, he did.

"When I hear anything about an entire powerful group of people being held captive for 400 years, it sounds like a choice to the spirit of Kanye West, which I think is aligned with the spirit of Harriet Tubman," he began, per XXL Mag.

Here we go with the false Harriet Tubman equivalencies again ... apparently 'Ye missed the criticism Nicki faced for comparing herself to the female Moses.

But, to allow Yeezus to continue ... 

"I want to take this moment right now to say I'm sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment," West said. "I'm sorry to people who felt let down by that moment. And also I appreciate you guys giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through. I just appreciate you guys holding on to me as a family. And one thing I got from the TMZ comment: I learned how much black people love me."

Twitter was quick to respond to his apology, and 'Ye received a mixture of sympathy and skepticism.
