Kenan Thompson was on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday and he gave his reaction to Kanye’s onstage rant, “We’re all entitled to our opinion, but you know, I don’t know if that’s the moment, necessarily, to hold people hostage like that, but hey.” said Thompson.

Thompson, who usually watches the show from backstage says he felt sorry for the cast who stood there helplessly as Kanye spewed thoughts that the cast didn’t necessarily agree with.

“As soon as he said, ‘Hey, join me up on stage, everybody,’ I was like, ‘Oh, there goes the little cheese in the mousetrap.’ It’s going down,” Thompson told Meyers. Kenan denied that Kanye was “bullied” saying, “We are fair. We’re in a service business, we try to cater to the host, make sure they have a good show and what not, and then when musical guests come in and they’re a little bit crazy, we let them have that. But we don’t judge, we’re not there to judge.”

After Kanye clarified what he was trying to say while on the SNL stage, do you have a better understanding of what he was trying to say and is he correct?
