- Hughley, 57, said that while accepting West, 43, who has "some mental illness," he does not explain his controversial comments on slavery
- The actor said he hopes West gets the help he needs but wondered how he could still run his thriving Yeezy empire
- "[He's] not so sick that he can't borrow $ 5 million in PPP," Hughley said during a virtual event with FanRoom Live host Chanel Omari
- West first recognized his bipolar disorder in 2018, a condition that includes episodes of mood swings that range from depressive lows to manic highs
Actor D. L. Hughley has incriminated the welfare of Kanye West, saying that while he believes the rapper has clear issues, he accused him of "comfortably mentally ill".
The 43-year-old West first acknowledged his bipolar disorder in 2018, a condition associated with episodes of mood swings that range from depressive lows to manic highs that can be controlled with medication.
The rapper's wife, Kim Kardashian West, hinted last month that his battle with bipolar was responsible for his erratic behavior, which led him to take on an unlikely presidential bid at his first campaign rally in South Carolina and emotionally to become while discussing abortion.
Speaking: Actor D. L. Hughley has accused Kanye West of "comfortably mentally ill" and said the rapper is "not so sick that he cannot take a $ 5 million PPP".
During a virtual event with FanRoom Live host Chanel Omari, Hughley – who recently announced he tested positive for COVID-19 – said of West, "There is no doubt that he has some form of mental illness." "A big problem in our community."
However, Hughley said he doesn't think West's struggles are why he makes derogatory remarks on historical figures like Harriet Tubman, who controversially said West, "the slaves never really set free".
"[Insanity] isn't why he doesn't respect our history," said Hughley, implying that he believes West only talks about people "whom he knows he can get away with."
Emotional: Kanye introduced himself at his July rally in South Carolina where he talked about abortion while crying on stage. West suffers from bipolar disorder.
Hughley then asked in the chat how West can be a "disruptor" in the political world or how he can make business decisions about his billion dollar Yeezy empire when he's mentally ill.
"He's not so sick that he can't [take] $ 5 million on the PPP payments," said Hughley. & # 39; So he comfortably seems sick when it serves his purposes. And I think he's to me, Kanye West, just like Donald Trump. So it would make sense that they would be attracted to each other. & # 39;
Hughley added that with his billion dollar fortune, West "has the access and essentials to help himself".

Claims: Actor D.L. Hughley – pictured last December – recently announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 and spoke about Kanye West in a new interview
"Whatever he's going through … he could mitigate a lot of that by resorting to help that's available as often as people are praying for Kanye," he said.
The actor said he prayed for West to get help and get better and shouldn't be "rewarded" for his erratic behavior.
Hughley seemed to criticize the rapper for making clothes on his Yeezy line "to look like the homeless" and then selling them for "hundreds of dollars".
Worried: Actor D.L. Hughley said he hoped Kanye West got the right help he needed
He concluded, "So if, while we are praying for people who can help themselves, we save a little prayer for people who cannot."
Last week, West appeared to be suggesting that he launch a spoiler campaign against Joe Biden after he was approved for Colorado's election, but said, "I'm not running for president … I'm going."
President Donald Trump then denied any involvement in West's efforts to vote on the president's battlefields – amid a series of revelations about GOP-affiliated officials who support the effort.
When asked directly if he was running to violate Democrat Biden West's campaign, he had previously told Forbes he was "walking" and added, "going … to win."
The Grammy Award winner was later investigated for failing to win 2020, which suggests he is running as a distraction. Vocal Trump supporter West replied, “I'm not going to argue with you. Jesus is king. & # 39;
He did not confirm who was helping implement his strategy. When asked if Biden's chances could be compromised, West replied, "I don't deny it. I just told you."
West later tweeted his & # 39; 2020 VISION & # 39; and shared a mood board with pictures including Jesus, an eagle, and a map of the United States with West written on it. He wrote: "The goal is to win."
