BREAKING: Kanye West Defends Satan, Claiming He 'Got a Bad Rap'
Has the Father of Lies been misunderstood?
Austin, TX — Rapper Kanye West, who now goes by the name “Ye,” recently argued that perhaps we should rethink our opinions of Satan, the archangel who defied God and was cast out of Heaven thousands of years ago. His comments came during a high-profile interview and have sparked confusion all across social media.
“All I’m saying is that maybe Satan got a bad rap,” the artist insisted. “I think God might have been overreacting when he kicked him out of Heaven just for expressing his opinions.”
He added: “Why shouldn’t the heavenly host be allowed to hear other ideas? He was just saying what all the other angels were afraid to say.”
Satan, who used to go by the name “Lucifer,” was banished from Heaven and hurled to the Earth before man was created. He is alleged to have tempted Eve, the first woman, into eating fruit from the forbidden tree and then sharing it with her husband, Adam, thereby placing all of mankind in a fallen state.
Ye said he believes Satan and Eve were treated unfairly. “I mean, she just wanted a snack, and Satan was trying to help,” the rapper argued. “She probably thought God was just kidding when he said all that ‘thou shalt surely die’ stuff.”
The artist’s comments came after he said he “sees good things about Hitler also.”
Satan, who is also known as the “Father of Lies,” has also been accused of brutally torturing a man named Job and even trying to corrupt Jesus Christ by offering him all the pleasures of the world. “I just think we have to take a step back and look at this from a different perspective. Sure, Satan did some bad things, but I don’t think he deserves to be canceled because of it.”
Legion, a group of fallen angels, agreed with Ye’s sentiments and recounted their experience of being persecuted:
“We were minding our own business one day with this guy in a graveyard, and this Jesus guy strolls in out of nowhere demanding that we leave. I mean, we were there first, right? Instead of leaving us in peace, he drove us into some pigs!”
“Can you imagine what it’s like to be trapped in the body of a smelly, nasty animal like that? We immediately jumped into the sea and drowned,” the demon complained. “It was just, it was just awful.”
Ye indicated that he would love the opportunity to help Satan rehabilitate his image. “We free-thinkers need to stick together. If I can change even a few minds, I’ll be happy,” he said.
