For those who don’t remember, West said during a TMZ Live interview that he thought slavery was a choice. The insensitive comment garnered intense backlash, especially in the black community.

West also tried to clarify his remark during this new interview, saying people misunderstood his words. He explained:

“I never said slavery itself — like being shackled in chains — was a choice. That’s why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works.”

Regardless, it looks like their marriage has rebounded, and we wish Kanye West and Kim Kardashian the best.
