Kanye West defends his, 'art'

After facing serious backlash online, Kanye West has spoken out in defense of his Eazy music video.

It features a Claymation character that looks a lot like his ex Kim Kardashian's new boyfriend Pete Davidson.

And many social media users have been calling it, 'disturbing.'

Taking to Instagram, Kanye defended his, 'art,' by claiming it's a form of, 'therapy.'

'art is protected as freedom of speech... art inspires and simplifies the world... Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm.'

'Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended'

The music video was released last week, and featured a Claymation character that looks a lot like Pete.

The character is kidnapped, tied up and buried alive.

One Twitter user called it, 'disturbing af,' and said they hope Pete, 'has a lot of security guards...'

Kim and Kanye called it quits last year, with her filing for divorce in February after six years of marriage.

In recent months, Kanye has made it clear he wants to reunite with Kim and bring their family back together.

But she's moved on with the Saturday Night Live comedian.
