Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are criticized for meeting the Ugandan leader


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?”
