Actress Jenifer Lewis Demands Kanye West Shut Up and Get Some Help: “Go Sit Down Somewhere”

Kanye West continues his outspoken spiral. Just this past weekend, while Dave Chappelle took to Saturday Night Live to poke fun at his backlash, West was telling paparazzi that his mother was sacrificed. Debates on the state of his mental issues continue to rage as fans feel he is just manic and in need of sympathy. Others feel his illness is no excuse, and the only resolution for the fallen star is professional help. Jenifer Lewis knows this battle well and is speaking out.

Jenifer Lewis recently stopped by The Pascal Show to discuss some of her ongoing projects. While there, Pascal mentioned that Lewis, who has a history of mental illness and bipolar disorder, had mentioned Kanye West in her book. Lewis declared that she was sick of West and had been long before his current scandal. “I don’t care what he’s dealing with. Shut your [expletive] mouth. You go sit down somewhere. All the kids that look up to his a**.” She then looked into the camera and said, “Hey, Kanye! My name is Jenifer Lewis. I’m famous too. Not as famous as you. That does not excuse you from doing what you shouldn’t be doing.”

Lewis, as if feeling the weight of her words, began to address him in a more maternal voice. “Go get help, baby. Your children need you. You hush now. I know what pain you’re going through. I went through it. Do it for your children. Do it for the next generation. They gave you everything. They listen to your music. Because you consider yourself a genius. A lot of people do. Van Gogh was a genius. They cut his f****** ear off. You hush now, go get some help.”

Lewis concluded her tough love with an offer to help West herself. “Find me, call me. Let me help you. That baby’s so sick.” Lewis struggled for years with bipolar disorder, and in 2017 she opened up about her symptoms and how she suffered in silence because she was unaware and just thought it was part of her personality. She is now an advocate for mental health and speaks out often.

No word if Kanye West caught wind of Jenifer Lewis’ interview, but we can guarantee if he does he’ll be responding her. West has called out everyone who has spoke against him including Bossie, Shaq, Charles Barkley, and others.
