Pharrell Williams thinks people in the music industry should stand by Kanye West in spite of his support of President Donald Trump.
Williams told Complex, “We have to love our brother, regardless. We might not agree with him, but we can’t stand by and watch anything happen to him, because he’s our brother.” Pharrell continued, “We’ve got to pay attention to the symbolism of what’s happening. Never have we ever, in history, have we ever witnessed a staple in the community be utilized in that way, with that kind of real impression.
So I look at the symbolism of that and say ‘Man, that’s our brother.’” He went on to say, “We don’t want to abandon him because we fundamentally disagree. We care about his wellbeing. I’m not siding with him at all. What I’m looking at is his DNA. He’s our brother, he’s human. That’s what it really boils down to.” Do you agree with Pharrell? Should we be keeping Kanye close like a relative who might have gone left?
