Kanye West apologises
In a bizarre rant, the rapper spoke before a group of paparazzi stating he is feeling their pain over his statements.
According to Daily Mail, Kanye falsely claimed George Floyd had died from the narcotic drug fentanyl and not the police knee on his neck.
Kanye who goes by his newly adopted stage name Ye said he had been humbled by events that led to him losing KSh 242 billion after major brands deserted him.
“So when I questioned the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people. I want to apologize. Because God has showed me by what Adidas is doing, by what the media is doing, I know how it feels to have a knee on my neck now.”
“So thank you God for humbling me and letting me know how it really felt. Because how could the richest black men ever be humbled other than to be made to not be a billionaire in front of everyone off of one comment.”

Netizens reacted to Kanye's apology and below are some of their reactions:
“This apology is so unserious.”
“He didn’t lose Adidas because he disrespected “his people” tho! He lost it because he disrespected “theirs”!”
“Never boast about what u have because god can definitely take it from u. I hope this was a lesson for him fr and not him just apologizing bc he lost deals etc.”
“This honestly felt like satire.”
Kanye law suit
The rapper sparked new controversy by claiming that Floyd died from the drug fentanyl and not police brutality.
Kanye claimed that a police officer’s knee wasn’t even on Floyd's neck like that.
The potential lawsuit was announced on Sunday, October 16, in a tweet by civil rights activist and attorney Lee Merritt.
