Lana Del Rey, who played Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West’s wedding, and
Captain America Chris Evans spoke out against Kanye West’s pro-Trump speech on Saturday Night Live‘s season 44 premiere and the tweets that ensued.
After the episode aired, West took to Twitter and defended his decision to wear a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat, where he even advocates for the abolishment of the 13th amendment (the amendment that ended slavery).
this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love pic.twitter.com/a15WqI8zgu

Allegedly, West’s problem with the 13th amendment is that it also allows for prisoners to be used for forced labour, which he failed to articulate.
Both Lana Del Rey and Captain America himself confronted the renowned rap artist.
Del Rey, who has previously urged her fans to cast a witch spell on Trump, commented on one of West’s recent Instagram post, writing that “Trump becoming our president was a loss for our country but your support of him is a loss for the culture.”

Evans also personally responded to Kanye West’s pro-Trump tweets, stating that “There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue.”
There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying. https://t.co/4jCFwB4T5U

Looks like Kanye’s going to have to watch out for Del Rey’s black magic and Evans’ protective shield.
