Lady Gaga Voices Support for Kanye West: ‘I Hope the Public Shows Compassion’
Lady Gaga is offering some words of support to Kanye West, following West's recent behavior and current hospitalization. West has been hospitalized in LA since Monday (Nov. 21); he has reportedly been recovering from, reportedly, stress and exhaustion.
The news followed increasingly erratic behavior from Kanye at shows, where he had gone on two highly-publicized rants where he praised Donald Trump and blasted estranged former friends Jay Z and Beyonce. He was accused of being involved in an altercation with a gym worker just prior to his being taken to a medical facility. West canceled the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo Tour.
Lady Gaga urged everyone to view West's situation with compassion and understanding.
“It's not funny to joke about anyone's possible or not possible mental illness, this is a sensitive time for many. Let's be kind & loving,” Gaga tweeted.
"While I don't agree with everything he does I hope the public shows compassion and
“@kanyewest i support & love u brother, I see in you bravery & courage to stop this tour & take care of YOU. You are a GREAT artist.”
Gaga joins other notables such as Chance the Rapper, Lupe Fiasco and Pusha T in sending words of encouragement to the superstar as he works through his situation and attempts to get help.
