Director Spike Lee is begging for Kanye West to just wake up already. The Hollywood veteran has stepped forward to share his concern for Yeezy’s state of mind following controversial slavery remarks.

Lee went to Instagram Wednesday (May 2) and checked West about suggesting slaves had a choice.

Last night, Selma director Ava DuVernay shared similar feelings toward Kanye.

Yesterday, Kanye made headlines with a slew of slavery-inspired tweets.

Despite receiving massive backlash, Ye has received ample support from conservative news show “Fox & Friends” following yesterday’s slavery comments.

“He came out and says slavery was a choice and then he went ahead and clarified on Twitter because it caused outrage — obviously — with that statement,” said co-host Brian Kilmeade before explaining what the rapper really meant. “He said to think about 400 years ago and be in that mindset today is a choice. Get out of that mindset and think about now,” said Kilmeade. “Lives in Hollywood. Getting a lot of backlash from the Hollywood folks out there. Many people out there. Liberal. They don’t like him. So for him to speak up, good for him. He’s tripling down,” said fellow co-host Ainsley Earhardt. (The Wrap)
