SNL star Kenan Thompson didn't stick around when Kanye West performed on Saturday Night Live last year and went on a pro-Donald Trump rant

The longtime comedic actor recently stopped by Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, and at the 7:00 minute mark he explained why he left once Ye started going off.

"I mean, if you're a fan of Hip Hop you know him so you know," said Thompson. "It's a moment in the show where it's, like, sometimes they'll do a last song over the good night credits or whatever. U2 did it, [Paul] McCartney did it, and they actually, like, go to the other stage and get with they band and do a whole performance. When I saw that he was standing on the regular stage I was, like, oh he's just gonna take a moment and have a moment basically."

Kenan then said he chose to watch Ye's rant on his own.

"I think I would like to watch this on TV," he told himself. "And I got lucky because it became extremely uncomfortable extremely quickly. I was also tired as hell, it's a long day. But god bless him, I felt bad."

Are you still a fan of Kanye's music these days or do you associate him more with rants and talking crazy?
