Kanye West's polarizing nature has only seemed to intensify with time, with him, most recently, hitting a peak of annoyance for many following his visit with Donald Trump at the White House.

Ironically, following his discombobulated rant with the current POTUS, 'Ye was set to speak with Charlamange Tha God in a mental-health-themed Times Talk. However, The Breakfast Club co-host recently shared that he has decided to cancel the interview for a pretty justifiable reason.

In an Instagram post, Charlamagne detailed his reasoning for canceling the event while sharing his own struggles with his mental health.

"Normalizing being mentally healthy is a conversation that I really wanted to have with Kanye because he's been so vocal about his own mental health struggles," he wrote. "Unfortunately I think to have that conversation with him right now would not be produdctive and a total distraction from the point of the convo which is to eradicate the stigma of mental health especially in the black community."

Days before the radio personality decided to cancel the October 17-scheduled event, West met with Trump and explained his decision to wear the infamous MAGA hat all while praising the documented racist.

“You know, they tried to scare me to not wear this hat— my own friends,” the rapper said. “But this hat, it gives me — it gives me power, in a way. You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn’t have a lot of male energy in my home. And also, I’m married to a family that— (laughs) — you know, not a lot of male energy going on."

He went on to add, while speaking directly to Trump, that when he puts the hat on, "It made me feel like Superman. You made a Superman. That was my— that’s my favorite superhero. And you made a Superman cape."

West previously opened up about his bipolar disorder diagnosis.
