Because of the controversial nature of many of his comments (and because this is Kanye West we're talking about), it isn't that surprising that a lot of fellow celebrities went out of their way to weigh in — or not weigh in, for that matter — on what he's been saying.
Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian naturally rushed to his defense.
However, she did make it very clear that Kanye's opinions on the president are very different from her own.
And she *ALSO* chastised the media for blaming Kanye's spurt of commentary on his mental health.
It also seems that Kim spoke to Kanye behind-the-scenes about what he has been saying.
Kris "No Days Off" Jenner immediately went into emergency spin mode, denying not one...
...but THREE news stories based on Kanye and Kim. The devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works HARDER.
Based on this screenshot Kanye shared, it looks like singer John Legend reached out to the rapper to try and get him to modify his stance on the president. It...didn't go well.
Chrissy Teigen sort of seemed to address the situation via this tweet, saying that while the public might want stars to air out their grievances publicly, a lot of this discussion actually goes down behind the scenes.
She also poked fun at the screenshot Kanye shared of his conversation with her husband.
She went on to further make light of the situation...
...and Kim (the two are pretty good friends) played right along.
Get Out writer/director Jordan Peele joked that he might be taking inspiration for a sequel from Kanye's tweets.
On the other hand...Ice T had no time for Kanye's antics.
No time at ALL.
On the other hand, Chance the Rapper and fellow Chicago native backed up Kanye in a series of tweets.
He also went on to make some political statements of his own.
My head is spinning trying to decipher this, but somehow Todrick Hall (a remaining member of Taylor Swift's "Squad") somehow turned the whole thing into a defense of the pop star.
SUBTWEET TIME. As usual, Jaden Smith had a very...Jaden Smith take on the whole situation.
But somehow, it kind of makes sense?

And I couldn't help but laugh at Gabby Sidibe's tweet.
But (unsurprisingly) Taraji P. Henson and Angela Bassett had probably the best take on all of Kanye's commentary, courtesy of an interview with AP Entertainment. I know listening and clicking play is a pain in the ass, but I *PROMISE* it's worth it.
2018 has been *QUITE* the ride, hasn't it!
