The American singer Akon caused the fury of a large number of Internet users by giving his opinion about the anti-Semitic comments expressed by the rapper Kanye West a few days ago, for which he later had to use his Twitter account to clarify the situation.
During an interview for Sky News, the host informed Akon that Elon Musk had again blocked West's Twitter account, and questioned him about his support for the rapper. After his recent statements: “I show my support for opinion and I believe that people will always have a specific opinion. And I think that by the time we get to the place where we close our minds to other people's opinion, it doesn't allow us to know ourselves better… to know our way of thinking better and, more than anything, to know our movements better. I think sometimes we prejudge people by the way we see things. And I think sometimes we should open our minds, let things flow and better understand the situation so we have a better solution for it.”
Soon after, Akon 's opinion generated controversy, so he posted a message on Twitter in which he did not apologize for his comments, but tried to clarify things: “Clearly I do not agree with Kanye West's remarks. I am simply saying that everyone should have the right to their own opinion. It doesn't mean we always agree.”
