LOS ANGELES - Kanye West wants to clear the air.
This comes just days after Ye made headlines after wearing a White Lives Matter shirt during his YEEZY Season 9 fashion show in Paris. He told FOX News he was privately warned that people wearing the shirt would be assaulted, similar to how some people wearing Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" hat would be targeted in the past.
"[They] said that I like Trump, that my career will be over, that my life would be over. They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that," Ye told Carlson Thursday.
Ye also explained his pro-life stance in the interview.
"I don't care about people's responses. I care about the fact that there's more Black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point, that 50% of Black Death in America is abortion. So I really don't care about people's response," he said.
The multi-talented artist gave a speech detailing the pushback he received as he entered the fashion industry while donning a shirt with "White Lives Matter" printed on the back in white lettering with people saying the Pope's face was emblazoned on the front.

According to TMZ, Ye landed at LAX from Paris and met with Carlson to discuss some talking points ahead of the interview.
In addition to the "White Lives Matter" controversy, Ye is also under fire for comments he made on Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson after she shared her take on his show and the WLM apparel.
