Social media users have criticized Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for meeting with the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, who is a strong opponent of LGBT rights and who repeatedly cl;aimed that as long as he ruled the country homosexuality would remain illegal there. Uganda outlaws homosexuality and punishes it with life imprisonment. Alastair Jamieson, a journalist at NBC News, posted: “One of the most anti-LGBT countries in the world, and Kanye West gifts the ruler a pair of sneakers.” Another Twitter user said: “Museveni is an Evangelical Christian who has held office for over 30 years. He has supported and instituted a variety of extreme anti-LGBT policies and laws in Uganda. Apparently, human rights aren’t a big deal to Kanye West.” And another person wrote: “Yo @KimKardashian and @kanyewest did you do your homework on #Uganda anti-LGBT laws and death sentences they use on their gay citizens before meeting their President and First Lady?”
