Things aren't going well for Kanye West right now. The polarizing rapper opined on the heated U.S. presidential election on-stage last night, saying that he would have voted for Donald Trump had he participated in the election.
"If I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump," West said during the the first stop of the second leg of his Saint Pablo tour.

West spoke at length about the election and the political atmosphere in the U.S. during the show. Much of his speech is captured in the video below.
What does this controversial opinion mean for West's Adidas Yeezy Boost line of sneakers? People burned their New Balances after hearing about the brand supporting Trump, so there is a precedent here. Many Twitter users are already drawing comparisons between the New Balance Trump controversy and West's.
Read a handful of sneaker-centric social media responses to West's Trump comments below and stay tuned to see if Adidas has a comment on the matter.

I'm sure everyone will boycott yeezys just like they did New Balance, right? RIGHT???— KFC (@KFCBarstool) November 18, 2016
