In a new interview, Charlamagne spoke up for Ye and said people should realize we’re all jumping the gun on West.
“I think we’re all wack and we’re all hypocrites. I think we all contradict ourselves because we see a guy sitting there, screaming that he may have mental health issues, but everyone wants to cancel him.” (Buzzfeed)

Recently, Charlamagne defended his decision to cancel a mental health debate with Kanye going down in New York.
“For what I’m trying to do which is like elevate the conversation of mental health in the black community and you know, try to eradicate the stigma around mental health, I just didn’t think it’d be a good conversation. It’d be a distraction.” (“Late Show With Stephen Colbert”)
Earlier this month, the “Breakfast Club” co-host announced the nixed mental health panel debate.
