Kanye West returned to Twitter to post a lengthy video in which he discusses mind control and the “poison” of social media.
Last week, the rapper deleted both his Twitter and Instagram accounts, but shared two short videos, a soundbite and then a ten-minute video in which he discussed mind control.
Speaking directly to the camera, West said, “I just wanna talk about mind control. You know when people try to influence you through social media and try to tell you what to do, or if people post something that’s positive on Instagram it gets taken down if it’s not part of a bigger agenda. That’s, like, mind control…That’s the poison that’s happening with social media.”
He continued: “I feel like when people try to tell me what to do, they’re touching my brain… If someone tries to tell me what I can do, what I can wear, I feel like they’re touching my brain.”
West then hit out at social media and it’s potential influence. He said: “Social media is a lie. Social media told you Hillary Clinton was going to win, and she didn’t win. Social media told you nobody likes me, but everybody loves me. Everybody loves Ye.”
He added, “Unprogram your minds. Open your heart. Let your conscience be free.”
The outburst comes just days after West met Donald Trump at the White House, where he gave a ten-minute speech during a public sit down with the president.
