Kanye West has been quite unpredictable in the recent past. The 21-time Grammy-winning artist has been getting into a lot of trouble lately. To rewind, Ye’s anti-semitic comments landed him in a pickle, with many big brands cutting all ties with the star. This has resulted in a billion-dollar financial loss for Ye.

Kanye’s most recent behavior

Now, slowly, more people and brands are boycotting West due to what he stands for. From donning a ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt to making up his own theories about George Floyd’s death, it seems like West is getting ‘cancelled’ by everyone. Not just cancelled, the ‘Flashing Lights’ singer is allegedly in legal trouble, as Floyd’s family is suing him for his false statements.

Recently, stand-up comedian D.L. Hughley had a lot to say about West and his current controversies. Here’s what he said.

D.L. Hughley’s take on Kanye

Hughley condemned Ye’s behavior and voiced displeasure in the course that the rapper has chosen to take. He expressed that West’s words undermine the deaths of people who have died by the hands of white supremacy. He also feels like West’s erratic actions aren’t normal, and the only thing standing in the way of West being in conservatorship is his gender.

D.L. Hughley’s comparison of Kanye to Britney

As per the Independent, Hughley has spoken out against West’s recent behavior, arguing that if the musician ‘was a female’, he wouldn’t have access to his resources. He said:

If Kanye was a female, if he had a vagina, he would already be in a conservatorship. Ask Wendy Williams or Britney Spears, and they didn’t do half the erratic things he did.

When asked if he thought West ‘should be in a conservatorship’, Hughley clarified saying ‘that’s not up to me’.
