Kanye West’s New Interview Dropped, Says He May Be “Mildly Autistic”… Who Keeps Interviewing This Guy?

Someone needs to get Kanye out of the public consciousness, his recent claim that he is “mildly” autistic is preposterous from my point of view and I can honestly rail about this for a while…

You got the wrong wit with Kanye😭😭😭😭 talking about I’m not bipolar I’m not having an episode but I might be mildly autistic 😭😭😭 like I can’t with him

As a Black autistic person, I just want to say that I am disgusted by Kanye’s actions. Especially his recent proclamation that he is “mildly” autistic.

Kanye: I want to run for president because I love everyone Kanye: White lives matter Kanye: I also like Hitler and the Nazis Kanye: No, I don’t think liking Hitler will ruin my chances of becoming president Kanye: I’m not bipolar, i’m autistic lol wat

Kanye West actually dated Nick Fuentes for about 3 weeks and started calling himself autistic.

Kanye’s decision to claim he’s ‘mildly autistic’ is my final straw this week, I swear

So Kanye is now saying he’s not bipolar, he’s mildly autistic… what?!?! https://t.co/BVVzUdE96f

I find Kanye West says he is autistic and blames his outbursts on homophobia, racism, anti-Semitism, misogynism, sexism, etc. What you really are is a narcissist as you refuse to go to therapy, you refuse medication and you refuse to take responsibility for anything you do.
