The fallout continues for free-thinker Kanye West in the wake of his controversial "slavery" comment
that was taken out of context. A radio show in Detroit, Michigan has banned the rap producer's music from the station's airwaves.
105.1 The Bounce's DJs BiGG and Shay Shay announced they will not play the "Jesus Walks" hitmaker's music for suggesting slavery was a "choice" during a TMZ Live chat earlier this week.
Station bosses also launched a #MuteKanye censorship campaign via Facebook.com.
Kanye fled California earlier this week amid all the ruckus over his personal opinions. He is currently in Wyoming working on 2 albums, scheduled for release on June 1st.
Many celebrities criticized Kanye over his remarks, with rapper-turned-TV personality Eve insisting she was "done" with the rapper.
In an interview with Hot 97, singer/actress Janelle Monáe said, “I believe in free thinking, but I don’t believe in free thinking if it’s rooted in, or at the expense of the oppressed. If your free thinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to oppress black people, minorities, I think it’s bullshit and it’s not OK."
However, other stars have supported Kanye, insisting he has the right to free speech like any other U.S. citizen.
Atlanta rapper and activist David Banner said Kanye "has the right to say whatever he wants to say."
He added: “I’m more disappointed our people waste time on what anybody says. At the end of the day we put so much power in people who bounce basketballs, throw footballs or rap.”
And Justin Bieber took to Instagram on Thursday, writing: "Our job is to love, not to always agree. Love you Kanye."
