Kanye West has reportedly filed a restraining order against Daz Dillinger after the American rapper threatened him on social media. Dillinger himself shared the news with his fans.
The 44-year-old rapper sarcastically said that he appreciates West's move. He also claimed that West gave him a shout-out during his recent appearance on TMZ.
Earlier this week, Dillinger issued a "Crips alert" to local gang members to take aim at West.
"We are in one boat and they're killing all of us. He jumps over there and says 'Master, I'm your side. I'm with you Master Trump. Burn all these n*****,'" said Dillinger in the now deleted post.
Dillinger also encouraged West to just stay in Calabasas and to never go to Long Beach, California.
Kanye West Supports Donald Trump
The controversy surrounding Kim Kardashian's husband started after he expressed his support to President Donald Trump on Twitter. In one of his posts, West said that he loves Trump. He also called the president of the United States his "brother."
You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Later that day, West uploaded a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat. He also threw shade at the Obamas. In his new song "Ye Vs The People," West sings, "I know Obama was heaven-sent/But ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be President."
Rapper Slammed Over His Comments On Slavery
In related news, West once again faced controversy after he said that slavery is a choice.
"When you hear about slavery for 400 years... for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. We're mentally imprisoned," said West.
One of the TMZ staff, Van Lathan, slammed West and said that it seems he had an absence of thought during their conversation. West is entitled to believe whatever he wants to believe, Lathan continued. However, it is important for him to know that facts never lie.
"We have to deal with the marginalization that has come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice. I'm appalled, and brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something to me that isn't real," said Lathan.
On his Twitter account, West attempted to clarify his recent statements about slavery. He said that people should have more open discussions about the issue so that they could understand each other better. The tweet has since been deleted.
