Kanye West has addressed the backlash he faced over the music video for his track Eazy, featuring The Game, which features him burying love rival Pete Davidson.

In the stop-motion clay animation music video for Eazy, West can be seen putting a bag over the head of a character that looks like the Saturday Night Live comedian, before tying him up and kidnapping him.

Later scenes then showed West sprinkling rose seeds on Davidson’s head after he had decapitated him.

The video was immediately met with backlash, with many fans criticising the rapper for the “disturbing scenes.”

Kanye West decapitating Pete Davidson in his new music video is absolutely disgusting and pathetic,” one fan wrote at the time.

Now, in his latest Instagram post, West appears to have responded to the criticism he faced for the visuals.

“Art is therapy just like this view, art is protected as freedom of speech, art inspires and simplifies the world,” he captioned an image of a burning church.

“Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm. Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended,” he added.
