Kanye West shared a few thoughts on Thursday (Sept. 20) that have been sitting on his conscious for some time now. One is the negative impact of social media, which Yeezy believes is plaguing our youth. West even posted a conversation with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey regarding stripping the importance of follower counts on their app.
"We should be able to participate in social media without having to show how many followers or likes we have. Just like how we can turn off the comments we should be able to turn off the display of followers," he tweeted early Thursday. "This has an intense negative impact on our self-worth."
Yeezy followed up by posting a video of Denzel Washington urging the youth to stay away from the toxic environment that social media has created in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. "Social media can be good but we have to hold the heads responsible for the psychological damage it sometimes causes," West captioned.
