Kanye West Gets Roasted by Whoopi Goldberg for Not Voting

She calls him an "idiot boy."

Published January 11, 2017

Back in November, Kanye West made a shocking statement during a stop on his Saint Pablo Tour that many have not yet forgiven nor forgotten. 

During his rant, the rapper admitted that if he had voted, he would have cast a ballot for Donald Trump, with his somewhat out-of-left-field political stance confusing and angering his fans all in a mere 20-second period. Now that the Republican nominee has been determined by voters to be the next U.S. president and already posed for a photo opp alongside the rapper no less, one celebrity has come forward to remind us that West should not be excused for his choice to not cast a vote.

Whoopi Goldberg brought up the topic of West's controversial and somewhat hypocritical actions during her talk show this week and ended up absolutely going in on the rapper. 

"I don’t care who you would’ve voted for," she exclaimed during Tuesday's episode of The View (Jan. 11). "Don’t you ever say that, because people died for your right to not vote, you idiot boy! You foolish boy! Idiot boy! Don’t ever say that again!"

Needless to say, it's clear Goldberg believes that no one should boast not exercising their right to vote, let alone celebrities with an influential platform, and that there is no excuse to not participate in the voting process.
