Kanye West is speaking out for the first time since his controversial comment surrounding slavery in early May. His reasoning? Mental illness made him say it.

Speaking with Big Boy TV, the 40-year-old Kanye said he was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder when he was 39. He says that disorder was the cause of his now infamous TMZ rant.

In early May, Kanye upset most of his fans after he showed support for Donald Trump and claimed that slavery was a choice for Blacks.

Does this reasoning help Kanye make amends for his comments?
