Kanye West has fired back at Barack Obama by calling the former president “Black Lives Matter’s office manager.”
Speaking to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, West ripped into Obama, the man who once called the rapper a “jackass.”
West started by describing Obama as a “BLM office manager.”
“Black Lives Matter’s office manager,” he said after Carlson asked him what he meant.
“You get a semi-influential black person to be the face of a white company,” West explained.
“That means in the design world, in the art world, they would pick artists that were less talented than other artists based on their influence not on their actual work.
“Everyone is afraid of losing their opinion….
“Who is Ye farming for talent that Nike can hire for talent to be our new BLM office manager? Kind of like Obama.”
Tucker said, “you think of Obama as a BLM office manager?”
West: “That’s whatever.”

Kanye West said yesterday that he had an upcoming concert in Los Angeles canceled after he spoke out.
In a social media post that he deleted he wrote, “My Sofi Stadium show on November 4th just got canceled.
“I wonder if it had something to do with my White Lives Matter tee, what y’all think?”
West also told Tucker he was “bullied by Hollywood” and had his life and career threatened because he supports President Donald Trump.
“My so-called friends, slash handlers around me told me, like, if I said that I like Trump, that my career will be over, that my life would be over,” West said.
“They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that.
“They threatened my life.
“They put my life, they basically said that I would be killed for wearing the hat.
“I had someone call me last night and said, ‘Anybody wearing a White Lives Matter shirt is going to be green-lit,’ and that means that they’re going to beat them up if they wear it.
“I’m like, you know, green light me then.”
He added, “Hollywood bullied me into biting my tongue about my support for Trump.”
