Last week, Kanye West was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. During his interview, host Kimmel brought up West's famous declaration "George Bush doesn't care about black people" in 2005 during a live televised Hurricane Katrina concert broadcast. After Kimmel asked if West believed that Donald Trump, who Kanye supports, cares about black people, West was silent for a few seconds. Kimmel then cut to a commercial, and the conversation did not resume.

On Saturday evening, West claimed on Twitter that contrary to media reports, he had not been "stumped" by Kimmel's question, but simply was not given enough time to respond. "The question was so important I took time to think," he wrote.

As of press time, West still has not answered Kimmel's question publicly, and rapper G-Eazy is among the voices on social media calling for his response. "We're all still waiting on your answer, the floor is yours," the rapper wrote on Twitter Sunday evening. Read his tweet below.

G-Eazy appeared with Macklemore on the remix of YG's "Fuck Donald Trump" in 2016, so we know how he feels. He just wrapped up the The Endless Summer Tour with Lil Uzi Vert, Ty Dolla $ign, and YBN Nahmir. Kanye West released his album ye in June.
