Kanye West is facing severe backlash over comments he made about slavery. 

The rapper did an interview with TMZ, and said that the enslavement of African Americans over centuries may have been a 'choice'. 

'When you hear about slavery for 400 years...for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. We're mentally imprisoned'. 

Kanye then tweeted after his appearance with TMZ and said that his words were misinterpreted.
