Snoop Dogg said he feels bad for Kanye West and thinks his comments about slavery being a “choice” were nothing but a cry for help.
The comments came during the 46-year-old rappers’s appearance Thursday on “The View” when Meghan McCain asked him his thoughts after West said “400 years of slavery” seemed like “a choice” to him when appeared on TMZ live a few weeks back.
“I have to ask you about Kanye. A few weeks ago, he made the comment that, quote, ‘400 years of slavery sounded like a choice.’ What was your reaction when you heard that?” McCain asked.
“I mean, I thought he needed some medical attention, first and foremost” the “Gin and Juice” rapper answered, “but then after I got past the laughing, I started feeling, like, sad for him. Like, he truly misses his mother. He truly misses a black woman in his life.”
“He truly misses the stability of having somebody telling him when he is wrong and correcting him and checking him as opposed to allowing him to continue to do what he is doing,” he added. “And that to me is something…he needs help. It’s like to me he is crying out for help. So, instead of me bashing him, we’re trying to help him now.”
Joy Behar then interjected saying, “Oh, really…let’s see if that works.”
