Kanye West accuses John Legend of "manipulating my free thought" as he shares personal text message between them on Twitter and Chrissy Teigen reacts


Kanye West has shared a personal text message between him and his friend John Legend and in it, he accused Legend of "manipulating my free thought".
Kanye shared the private chats on Twitter. In the message, Legend asked Kanye to reconsider his stance on aligning himself with Donald Trump because he has fans relying on him and they might be disappointed. But Kanye disagreed then accused him of trying to manipulate his free thought.
John wrote:

Hey it's JL. I hope you'll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump.
You're way too powerful and influential to endorse who he is and what he stands for. As you know, what you say really means something to your fans.
They are loyal to you and respect your opinion. So many people who love you feel so betrayed right now because they know the harm that Trump's policies cause, especially to people of color.
Don't let this be part of your legacy. You're the greatest artist of our generation.
 
 
However, Kanye stood his ground and wrote back:
I love you John and I appreciate your thoughts. You bringing up my fans or my legacy is a tactic based on fear used to manipulate my free thought. 
Legend replied:
Think freely. Think with empathy and context too. Your words and actions have consequences. Much love.

Kanye shared the message on Twitter and wrote:
If you feel something don't let peer pressure manipulate you.


 
After Kanye shared the text messages on Twitter, Legend sent a message to him saying:

And since you're posting texts, let me add that I have a new single out haha
 
Explaining why he chose to share the chat, Kanye wrote:
I tweeted the John text to show that there are people around me that disagree with me and voice their opinion. I respect everyone's opinion but I stand my ground.

Kanye later tweeted:
I really appreciate this dialogue with John Legend because I'm actually very empathetic. Im still the kid from the telethon. I feel when people think of MAGA they don't think of empathy.
 
Meanwhile, John Legend's pregnant wife Chrissy Teigen reacted to the drama on Twitter, writing:
Everyone keeps asking me to comment on s***. Comment on psycho Tami Lasagna, whom I refuse to give the joy to, say something about RHOA, speak up about kanye.
When it comes to people we know, we DO speak up. To THEM. not on Twitter. And sometimes, I guess it makes it to Twitter.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
