Chris Evans Calls Out Kanye West on Twitter After His 13th Amendment Tweet

Chris Evans is calling out Kanye West‘s latest tweet, which mentions abolishing the Constitutions’ 13th amendment.

The amendment, which was passed in the 1860s, abolishes slavery.

If you don’t know, Kanye posted a photo of him in a “Make America Great Again,” hat with the caption, “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”

Chris read the tweet and eloquently responded, “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.”

Chris has been outspoken about Donald Trump and the Republican party.

    only one huge problem with that there’s only been amendment repealed and that was the 18th amendment prohibition which was repealed in 1933

  • Vanity

    you can’t just abolish one amendment, ratifying change to it, yes..but srsly he’s talking crazy right about now. No way does the 13th or any amendment get abolished.

    wish these celebs would just stay in their lane only thing he’s doing is creating propaganda.

  • cee

    Kanye is an idiot and a danger to our children. His ignorance and the fact that he has a platform to display that ignorance like our president is scary.

  • Kat123

    Good grief. West and his reality tv freak show family want to bring back slavery and promote isolationism. They should be the first to suffer.

  • Curt Noydb

    WELFARE IS SLAVERY. The black community is seeing the lowest unemployment in history.

  • Kat

    Wow. That man is brain dead for sure. He needs to be locked up in an asylum at this point. He will hurt himself one day.

    What a dumb fucking dumb fuck. Where was the hat made, Kanye? Where are your shoes made, Kanye? Donald Trump already has his 2020 keep America great crap flags being made IN CHINA!! The fuck you think Donald Trump really wants to help released convicts with great paying jobs? Who has been trying to raise and raise and raise the goddamn minimum wage to get it to a livable wage SO PEOPLE CAN GET OFF WELFARE PROGRAMS. It’s not Donald Trump and the Republican party. They think $7/hr. is TOO MUCH money to be making. Republicans have joked about wanting to be more like China with $2/hr. slave labor and everyone lives in the cheap ass dangerous dorms and everyone just works to death.

    And abolish the 13th amendment. Maybe you should brush up on the constitution, some political jargon, read the dictionary and maybe take a poli sci class or two before that presidential run. JFC.

    You are a fucking fool and a tool. You’re an embarrassment to your children.

    “There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue.”

    Talking about yourself, Evans?

  • Ash

    Oh the irony of calling other people dumbfuck. Raising minimum wage suggested by Democrats will only lead corporations taking their businesses elsewhere eventually or they’ll just get the machines to take over those jobs easily. So, raising the minimum wage will only make matters worse. It’s not going to work! I am not really a fan of Kanye but I have nothing against him either. One thing that I know for sure about him is that he is a lot smarter than how he presented himself in public. My problem with people like you and Chris Evans is you guys underestimate him solely based on his political views.

  • jh7058622

    Wages are Also at an all time low.

  • Ash

    Exactly! He knows so much about history and he’s still supporting Democratic Party? It says a lot about his “knowledge” on history really. Lol!

  • wearing

    it has less to do with political views and more to do with lack of education on the matter. Literally dumb but still able to amplify his voice as if he studied and put in the same amount of work as chris evans.

  • wearing

    Yes, sometimes people shockingly care about others in addition to themselves. THOSE IDIOTS. 🙄

  • Ash

    As if Chris Evans is educated on the matter in the first place! So what’s Chris Evans qualification to assume he knows more about politics other than graduated from The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute? Oh please don’t make me laugh! Chris Evans is an useful idiot who is clearly suffered from Dunning–Kruger effect.

  • DeadP001

    Will he be calling for the abolition of the Civil Rights act next? How about the Emancipation Proclamation? We fought a fking CIVIL WAR for that amendment and the union. Kanye West just spat on every single soul that fought and died in our civil war.

    I wish Hurricane Katrina took him and gave back everybody else. Next time he should just walk straight into one and spare us his diseased mind.

    His music isnt remotely worth jack. Past or present.

  • plez

    Kanye needs to stfu until he is following what he wants others to do. Where are his shoes being made? Where are the makeup and clothes from the Kim being made. Certainly not in the USA.

    AND GIVING ALL THEIR MONEY TO HIM, HIS WIFE AND OTHER DUMBSHIT RAPPERS.

  • namers

    What’s mortifying is his mother was a Ph.D professor! She kills herself having plastic surgery and then he marries someone who’s a plastic surgery ADDICT.

    He like #45 BOTH suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder: meets ALL the criteria in the DSM V. Don’t let the bi-polar diagnosis fool you; it’s SECONDARY. Nobody in their right mind would admit to a personality disorder.

    He should go walk into another stop sign. Then blame the sign.

  • Dip Shitterson

    Nah you indignant literal fucking shit, if you took community college for two years or learn a trade you can easily earn more than minimum wage and 7 dollars an hour for a low-skilled replacable job.

  • Elisa Rial

    …. I don’t know what’s worse, that he doesn’t know that the 13th Amendment is the one that abolished slavery in the USA or that he knows and said it with a straight face

  • RivkaMaria

    My grandkids are not allowed to listen to him. They are young enough that parental control still works, but old enough to notice Mr West, unfortunately. Their parents are instilling solid values and teaching them judgement and decision making. Hope they make the right ones as they get older.

  • RivkaMaria

    Chris Evans’ intelligence, well spokeness is super appealing.

  • RivkaMaria

    Yes, for me it is not about politics, but about being educated in general. Evans wins that category this time.

  • RivkaMaria

    It’s great that you can throw around pop psychology terms, but Evans does not at all appear to be suffering from the D-K effect. He is well spoken, his comments seem thoughtful and thought out. Mr West; pardon me; ‘Ye’, is a poor example of being savvy and connected to what is going on around him. I wish him no ill will, however.

  • RivkaMaria

    She had a doctorate? I did not know that, I do remember her tragic death. That had to affect him deeply.

    NPD has been or is being removed from the DSM due to the great prevalence of it now. It’s notoriously hard to treat, because narcissists hardly ever EVER seek treatment. When they do, it is usually after being given an ultimatum by someone they want to keep in their life to abuse and control. They then soon leave treatment, and why not? There’s nothing wrong with THEM, everyone else is always wrong. That said, no one can diagnose it based on a reputation or media articles.

  • RivkaMaria

    I wonder if he got his amendments confused. In any case, it seems he meant it should be abolished because there is no more (technically) slavery in the US. Of course we know that is not true….sweatshops and sex slavery organizations prove otherwise.

  • RivkaMaria

    Wages and the cost of living also have the widest gap between them ever.

  • RivkaMaria

    Good post.

  • RivkaMaria

    I am sure he does know baasic history, reads books, etc.

  • RivkaMaria

    Well, shouldn’t Deadpool go do something? ;)

  • RivkaMaria

    Bet most high school students today couldn’t tell you that. Sad.

  • Kat123

    Stop being so ignorant.

  • okay…

    Oh Chris, go flex your vocabulary somewhere else.
    Quite frankly I’m over his condescending and pretentious attitude.

  • okay…

    Oooooh freedom of speech bad! Relax. He isn’t spreading hate. I doubt most most people take what he says to heart or seriously for that matter. I’m not a fan of Kanye but if we are talking about Amendments, let’s remember the one that started them off.

  • DeadP001

    Its tempting….but I don’t feel comfortable targeting the mentally disabled…. yet.

  • A.T. Post

    And yet I’m proud that Kanye Tweeted that, because it’s got you and others like you in such a tizzy.

  • A.T. Post

    Okay, so he made a little typo! Does that make the rest of what he said any less apt?

  • USWeeklyHatesComments

    Get better world views if kanye not knowing the difference better abolish and amend makes you proud.

  • Robert Zraick

    That is the last straw! Chris, turn in you Captain America suit!
