Rapper Kanye West launched a series of bizarre social media demands this weekend.

The rants came after his appearance on Saturday Night Live, leaving many scratching their heads.

West posted a selfie wearing his red Make America Great Again baseball hat on Sunday, calling for the 13th Amendment to be abolished.

This ruling outlawed slavery in 1865, and it left the rapper trying to clarify to people what he actually meant.

After his SNL performance he gave a sermon backing President Trump that also received a mixed response from the studio audience.

On Sunday he wrote: "The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended We are the solution that heals (sic)."

Minutes later he clarified the statement by tweeting: "Not abolish but. let's amend the 13th amendment We apply everyone's opinions to our platform (sic)."

The mixed messages came after the 41-year-old announced that he was changing his named to "Ye."

West was also seen wearing a sweatshirt with the words "FREE HOOVER" written on it during SNL appearance, referring to a Chicago street gang leader.

Larry Hoover is currently serving six life sentences in Florence, Colorado, and the shirt is being sold for $90 at West's online store.

RadarOnline.com reported recently how Kris Jenner was unhappy with some of West's social media posts.
