The ever controversial Kanye West has gone too far with his ridiculous claim that slavery was a "choice" in a TMZ interview last week.
His comments continue having a rippling effect in the industry and now Detroit hip-hop radio station 105.1 The Bounce decided to deny the rapper a platform by dropping him completely.

According to the Detroit Metro Times, The Bounce removed all of West's songs from their morning playlist.
West's recent comments about slavery was the last straw after 105.1 Morning Bounce host Shay Shay took offense with West's prior claims about Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. were "too far in the past and not relatable."
@freespeechtv @CNN Good for Shay Shay and BiGG. You 15 minutes is coming to an end @kanyewest . Your cancelled!— Frodo (@Frodo)1525382446.0
BiGG & Shay Shay from the Morning Bounce made their announcement about ditching the much disputed artist on behalf of the station on Thursday's Facebook post.
We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that "slavery was a choice." We are over it. We don't want to hear Kanye's music, we don't want to play Kanye on our show, we don't want to talk about Kanye anymore. So we are taking a stand and we aren't playing his music anymore; we just are refusing to give him a platform.

TMZ reporter Van Lathan criticized West's comments on slavery and said that his support of right-wing rhetoric has "real-life, real-world consequence."
Frankly I'm disappointed, I'm appalled and brother—I'm unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that's not real. Bro, you gotta be responsible man… Your voice is too big.
@CNN It isnt about expressing opinions because anybody is free to do that. It's just that his opinion is lacking em… https://t.co/iauP0oPhbG— rodger (@rodger)1525382840.0
Shay Shay expressed her concern on the air over the rapper's unhinged behavior and abuse over his platform.
As an educator, as someone who works with young kids … he has a huge platform, OK? I just think that's reckless. I think when you have such a huge platform like that, to use it in a reckless way, I mean, you're basically saying history is irrelevant.

@CNN @Angela48525188 Hope this goes viral! Kanye West needs a good dose of reality. Also, he needs to start reading books.— Diane Foley (@Diane Foley)1525382872.0
Perhaps Kanye West might have a future on another platform.
@CNN Awesome! I hope all radio stations follow suit. Byebye @kanyewest, maybe you can be famous on conservative talk radio? Good luck.— JMKatz (@JMKatz)1525382941.0
