Mike Myers Is Happy about Kanye West and the Recent Rant on George Bush

Kanye West’s memorable rants about George Bush during a 2005 telethon for gathering funds for Hurricane Katrina victims still makes comedian Mike Myers feel proud of him.

Kanye West had infamously rapped about racism in the media before declaring, “George doesn't care about black people."

Now, nearly nine years after 'Yes’s infamous outburst, Myers is reflecting on the moment, telling GQ's June issue, "But for me, it isn't about the look of embarrassment on my face, it is truly about the injustice that was happening in New Orleans."

"To have the emphasis on the look on my face," he says, "versus the fact that somebody spoke truth to power at a time when somebody needed to speak? I'm, like, super proud to have been next to him."

Kanye, however, wasn't proud of all the things he said. Initially, he offered an apology, explaining on Today that "in my moment of frustration, I didn't have the grounds to call him a racist," saying, "we as human beings don't always choose the right words."

Later in 2010, When George Bush published his memoir, Decision Points mentioned the Kanye West racist rant against him as one of his lowest points in his presidency.

Kanye responded to this in an interview with Today's Matt Lauer, saying he "empathized" with W. "His take, his explanation—I completely agree with," he said. "In a moment of emotion, to peg someone as a racist, it's just not right."

Things took a more heated turn as 'Ye was pressed on the topic, but as he explained then, "Even in these times, when I was considered to have done something so wrong, my motivation was in a good place."
