Following on from his public break down yesterday, Kanye West went on a furious Twitter rant and made some alarming claims about his wife, Kim Kardashian...
Yesterday, Kanye West suffered a worrying and very public break down.
via: Getty ImagesSince announcing his run for presidency on July 4th, people have been incredibly worried about the rapper... But yesterday, these concerns reached a whole new level.
Kanye hosted his first campaign rally...
via: GettyAnd his behavior during and after the rally left a lot of people feeling alarmed, to say the least.
Now, Kanye West isn't usually known for his politics.
via: Getty ImagesSince the early 2000s, Kanye has become one of the biggest names in the music industry.
The rapper has gone on to release numerous albums...
via: Getty ImagesThese include My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010, Yeezus in 2013, The Life of Pablo in 2016, Ye in 2018, and Jesus is King in 2019.
And his music isn't the only reason he's so famous...
What do you think of this picture for America's next First Family?
Where do we begin when it comes to Kanye's erratic behavior?
via: Getty ImagesKanye has never been afraid of letting his opinion be known and, throughout the years, he has been in and out of the headlines for his strange and eye-opening antics.
But there was a heartbreaking explanation for these particular behaviors...
via: Getty ImagesLast year, Kanye opened up about his battles with mental illness. He revealed that, in 2014, he was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, 2 years before he suffered his highly-publicized nervous breakdown in 2016, which was likely triggered by the anniversary of his mother's death.
Kanye has come a long way in his battle...
via: GettyAnd he has been using his platform to help break down the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
But his most recent announcement has stirred up the concern once again...Because, out of the blue, he revealed that he would be running for president.
Now, in the last couple of years, Kanye has been dabbling in and out of the world of American politics.Back in 2018, Kanye, who is an avid Trump supporter, sat down with the president in the Oval Office where he proclaimed his support and declared Trump a “hero" in a bizarre, rambling televised monologue that spawned myriad parodies.
But, this month, he took things to the next level.

But this is America 2020, and anything can happen...

However, the rest of us weren't too impressed.

And despite initially Tweeting his support, even Elon Musk voiced his doubts.
@kanyewest You have my full support!— Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)1593909921.0
But, regardless of the haters, the rapper has been deadset on his "2020 vision"...
via: GettyAnd, over the weekend, he hosted his first-ever campaign rally.
However, his campaign proved to be an extremely chaotic and alarming experience.
via: TwitterKanye, who was clad in a bullet-proof vest with the numbers "2020" shaved into his head, threw his rally in Charleston, South Carolina, where he seemed to whip up various policy decisions right there on the spot.
The rapper's first controversial moment was in regard to his views on slavery.
via: TwitterKanye decided to discuss slavery, which is already dangerous waters for the rapper after he insisted that being enslaved was "a choice" back in 2018.
During his speech, he decided to tarnish the name of Harriet Tubman.
via: TwitterSpeaking valiantly to the crowd - without a microphone - Kanye said on the anti-slavery figure: "Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people."
But this wasn't even the worst part of Kanye's performance...
via: TwitterBecause when he went on to discuss the topic of abortion, he had a complete break down in front of his audience.
He started by explaining how his mom saved his life due to his father wanting her to get an abortion when she was pregnant.
via: Twitter"My mom saved my life! My dad wanted to abort me! There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy!" he shouted to the audience.
But this is when things took a turn for the worst...
via: TwitterKanye then started tearing up and he had to take a moment to compose himself as the audience started to cheer and shout things such as, "We love you Kanye!".
He then revealed some very private details about his family life...
via: Twitter"Then she said, 'I'm pregnant.' I said, 'Yes!' Then I said, 'No.' I gotta tell you what was in my mind. She was crying. She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. When you take the pills, and if you take it, the baby's gone."
Then, his emotions reached a boiling point.
via: Twitter"I almost killed my daughter!" he then screamed as tears streamed down his face. "Everything on my computer went black and white... God said 'If you f*** with my vision I'm gonna f*** with yours."
Kanye was crying so hard, it was difficult to understand what he was saying...
via: TwitterThe man was clearly in a lot of pain which, in itself, arose a lot concern about him running for president.
The crowd seemed to be stunned as Kanye sobbed uncontrollably...

Kim and the rest of her elite family have remained very quiet ever since Kanye's breakdown...
via: GettyThough there have been rumors that the Kardashians are all "shocked" and "upset" by his actions.
But yesterday evening, Kanye went on a huge Twitter rant...
via: GettyAnd, in doing so, he made some incredibly detrimental claims about his wife's response to the rally.
He began his rant by directing a tweet at momager, Kris Jenner, writing:
via: Getty"Kriss don’t play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children Ya’ll tried to lock me up."
But then, he turned his attentions to Kim.
via: GettyThe rapper claimed, in a now-deleted Tweet, that his wife had tried to "lock him up."
This is what he wrote:"Kim was flying to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughter's life yesterday."
Obviously, this is an incredibly erratic tweet...
via: GettyThe Jordan Peele movie, Get Out, tells the tale of a black man trapped by white people attempting to use his body as a host for the brains of their deceased relatives... So, yeah, he's making some pretty wild hints with this one.
The Kardashians are yet to respond to the incident.
via: GettyBut, for now, we can only hope that Kanye gets the help he so desperately needs.
