West launched a White House bid in July, and at his first campaign rally, he sparked criticism for his remark regarding Harriet Tubman, an American abolitionist and conductor of the Underground Railroad.
He said, “Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people,” which was followed by someone who was heard saying, “Come on man.”
Following remarks he made about politics and his marriage, West’s wife shared a statement where she noted that “Kanye has bi-polar disorder” but said he is a “brilliant but complicated person.”
Kardashian added, “I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.”
The rapper has not made the ballot in most states, according to The Hill.
According to FiveThirtyEight, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads in the national polls ahead of Election Day.
