Kanye West can’t seem to avoid controversy. His wife, Kim Kardashian-West, is doing some damage control after the polarizing artist caused a stir with comments made at the January 13 edition of his “Sunday Service” series.

A clip of Kanye speaking at the event surfaced online via an Instagram livestream. Yeezy’s words are being interpreted as a defense of R. Kelly and Michael Jackson due to him referencing documentaries.

Kelly has been under fire since Lifetime aired its Surviving R. Kelly docu-series, which explored the many allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct against him. Meanwhile, past allegations of Jackson sexually abusing children have recently resurfaced due to a new documentary making its debut at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

In his speech, Kanye seemingly framed the conversation around separating the art from the artist.

“Everybody, they want the art from the artist, but anytime they do anything erratic, they just gonna pull up full documentaries on ’em,” he said. “And then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary … We can enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn’t going to go there today but uh … If we gon’ tear down artists, let’s go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Louvre while we at it. Let’s take down all the art.”

As the outrage began to emerge, Kardashian-West stepped in and tried to clarify her husband’s remarks on Monday (January 14).

“I’m going to nip this in the bud right now,” she wrote via Twitter. “Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are cancelling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect. The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.”

A little over an hour later, the reality TV star reiterated that Kanye wasn’t defending the alleged actions of Kelly and Jackson. She also believes he was taken out of context.

“I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior,” she added. “My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.”
