Now, as fans were quick to point out, it's likely Kanye was talking about removing the amendment's wording that legally allows for unpaid servitude by convicted criminals, as suggested by his follow-up tweets saying the amendment should be "amended", rather than struck down. Now, the rapper has posted a photo of himself in the hat with an explanation behind it.
West tweeted: "This represents good and America becoming whole again".
West has previously said during an interview that "slavery was a choice".
Or even the ever-hopeful Questlove.
The amendment, which was passed in the 1860s, abolishes slavery. We will no longer outsource to other countries. "We are the solution that heals".
Kanye and Lana do have a history, it should be noted, with the "Summertime Sadness" singer performing her song "Young And Beautiful" at his wedding to Kim Kardashian West in 2015.
Kanye West recently caught some backlash for wearing a MAGA hat during his performance on Saturday Night Live and was heckled by people in the crowd. But abolishing the 13th amendment isn't the answer.
Avengers star Chris Evans stopped just short of calling Kanye an illiterate brute who is not worth debating with.
The tweet sparked outrage among his followers, and West later tried to clarify his position on the issue.
According to Variety, West discussed his support for Donald Trump and his pledge to run for president in 2020.
Lana commented on the post: 'Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture'.
"I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level". "Delusions of grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism. Message sent with concern that will never be addressed".
