The artist told David Letterman that he feels discriminated against because of his mental health problems.
Kanye said, “I can just tell you what I’m feeling at the time. I feel an increased connection to the universe as I walk up.
“It’s a health problem, these are sprained brains, like a sprained ankle. If someone has a sprained ankle, you are not going to force it on them anymore. With us, as soon as our brain reaches a sprain, people do everything they can to make it worse,
“They do everything possible. They’ve got us this far and they’re doing everything they can to make it worse. ‘
Kanye can sometimes experience psychosis during periods of severe mania, in which he feels hyperparanoia and believes everyone wants to catch him.
He described the episodes in detail to Letterman.
Kanye took to Twitter on Thursday morning to declare that six-month fetuses are ‘souls’ who ‘deserve to live’ in a now-deleted tweet
He said, “You have this moment [where] you feel that everyone wants to kill you. You hardly trust anyone.
“If you’re in this [episode] state, you are hyperparanoid about everything. Everyone – this is my experience, other people have different experiences – everyone is an actor now. Everything is a conspiracy.
“You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel yourself being taken in. You feel all these things. ‘
Thursday morning, Kanye posted and removed a pro-life tweet calling the six-monthly fetuses “souls” who “deserve to live.”
The controversial rapper’s pro-life attitude comes when he and Planned Parenthood have a fierce back-and-forth fight after claiming it was an organization run by ‘white supremacists to do the work of the devil.’
He shared a screenshot of a Google search and asked, “What does a six month fetus look like?”

While the tweet has since been removed, many have shared the screenshots from the post and have expressed annoyance at Kanye’s statement.

Kanye made inflammatory remarks about Planned Parenthood in his interview with Forbes Magazine, where he also says that he is “pro-life” because he “follows the word of the Bible.”
Nia Martin-Robinson, who is director of Black Leadership and Engagement at Planned Parenthood, rebuked the star, calling his claims “offensive” and “infantilization” in a statement by DailyMail.com.
“Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and they want and deserve access to the best medical care available. Any insinuation that abortion is black genocide is offensive and infantilizing, ”Nia’s statement began.
“The real threat to the safety, health and life of black communities stems from a lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police brutality and the criminalization of reproductive health through opposition to abortion.”
Nia added, “At Planned Parenthood, we trust and stand behind black women who are in charge and continue to lead when it comes to the health, rights and physical autonomy of those in their communities.”
Planned Parenthood also pointed out that it’s not the first time Kanye has made headlines about “parroting factually inaccurate, right-wing talking points about reproductive health care,” as he made the “false equivalence” between Plan B and abortion last year.
Meanwhile, in 2017, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West met Sue Dunlap, the president and chief executive of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so that she could form an opinion about the organization and its services.
Planned Parenthood’s perception is that it is an abortion clinic; that’s not how it is, “said Kim, 39, enthusiastically in the episode, praising the group, while her sister Khloe said she was up for the choice.
Kim added, “Hear that first hand [women’s stories] really made it for me. She later posted about the experience on Instagram and said she was with Planned Parenthood.
“My sisters and I recently visited Planned Parenthood and learned that the United States House of Representatives has enacted a bill that will strip health care coverage of millions and increase healthcare costs, including Planned Parenthood patients,” she wrote.
Add: ‘They are such a great place that offers so much to so much! #istandwithpp. ‘
Kanye has also had a huge backlash for revealing his anti-vaccination stance, telling Forbes, “It’s so many of our kids getting vaccinated and paralyzed … So when they say we’re going to fix COVID with a vaccine, I am extremely careful. ‘
The rapper also claimed that in February this year he had COVID-19 and took hot showers and watched instructional videos to pamper himself. He then referred to every possible COVID vaccine as a “mark of the beast.”
Advocate: In 2017, Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney Planned Parenthood visited Los Angeles, and later approved the organization saying, “ I’m standing with #PP. ”
