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.
