Justin Bieber Sends Kanye West 'Love' After 'Slavery' Comments Spark Backlash

The 'Sorry' singer unfollowed Kanye on Twitter last week.

Justin Bieber has publicly reached out to Kanye West with a message of support, after the rapper faced a heavy backlash for his comments suggesting 400 years of slavery "was a choice".

The Biebs - who was one of a number of celebrities to unfollow Kanye on Twitter when he penned a string of tweets in support of Donald Trump - shared a post on his Instagram on Thursday night (3 May), sending "love" in Kanye's direction.
