Kanye West Makes Controversial Abortion Comments

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - He's not saying they're gold diggers.. .actually, umm, this time, yeah, that's exactly what he's doing. And it's a very sensitive subject.

Kanye West took to Twitter to speak his mind about the hot button issue of abortion, and while not saying whether or not he thinks it should be legal, the rapper certainly took issue with some people who undergo the procedure.

"an abortion can cost a ballin' nigga up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin' bi**hes be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n**gas!" he recommended to his followers.

Just to be clear, though, Kanye hasn't had the problem himself.

"It ain't happen to me but I know people," he clarified. Phew.

Soon after that tweet, within the same hour, he added something a bit different to the conversation, tweeting simply "#LUXURYREALNESS."

Interestingly, on Tuesday he tweeted a picture of Justin Bieber, calling him his "new beat protege," a bit of an ironic turn given Bieber's own recent comments about abortion.

West has made all sorts of splashes on the social networking service since signing up in June, including long streams of diatribes against media members and people in the industry.

It'll be interesting to see which New Yorker cartoon this tweet is matched up alongside.
