Roseanne Barr defended Kanye West Thursday, saying he is telling the truth about Chicago that “people do not want to hear.”
“@kanyewest is telling the truth about Rahm [Emanuel’s] Chicago. Ppl do not want to hear the truth-that Chicago could be a better city for its citizens, but the establishment is corrupted,” the 65-year-old comedian tweeted to her followers.
“Let’s do something about #Chicago -all of us…instead of hurling insults and division. Let’s try efficient government and unity JUST THIS ONCE,” she added.
The comments come after the rapper tweeted last week that during Barack Obama’s eight years in office nothing changed with the level of violence in Chicago during a series of posts in support of President Donald Trump.
