Questlove Wears T-Shirt Reading “Kanye Doesn’t Care About Black People”
The hip-hop community has become a bit divided when it comes to Kanye West's recent tweets and praise of Donald Trump, and while some are supporting him, others aren't holding their tongues. After Questlove recently revealed that he almost quit Twitter due to Yeezy's controversial tweets, he was spotted sporting a T-shirt that shades the super producer over the weekend (April 27).
While performing at the Concert for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala., The Roots drummer sported a black shirt that had the same design as Kanye's Life of Pablo tour merchandise. Instead of reading Yeezy's "We on an ultra light beam" in an arch shape like the original design, Questlove's shirt reads "This is an alt-right dream" with the phrase "Kanye doesn't care about Black people" under it.
Rolling Stone writer Jamil Smith captured a close-up photo of the shirt on Instagram, and wrote a quick backstory in the caption.
"This is the shirt @questlove wore while performing at last night’s Concert for Peace and Justice here in Montgomery, Alabama," he writes. "It reads “Kanye Doesn’t Care About Black People,” underneath the arching sentence “This is an Alt-Right Dream.” I took this backstage after the event. After Ahmir showed his shirt, someone nearby remarked that “Kanye cares about record sales.” I can’t say that I disagree with that, or the t-shirt."
It's been a roller coaster week for Kanye West fans after the hitmaker has been tweeting support and love for the Commander-in-Chief, leading him to receive co-signs from members of the alt-right community. Trump is currently considering inviting Mr. West to the White House after praising him for his views on the black community and the state of Chicago.
