Halsey urges fans not to ridicule Kanye West amid mental health concerns

Halsey has actually asked her fans to “offer silence” to Kanye West if they can’t show empathy amid concerns he’s having a manic episode as part of his bipolar affective disorder.

The 43- year-old rapper struck headings over the weekend at a campaign rally for his U.S. governmental quote, when he declared that he and partner Kim Kardashian had actually thought about terminating their child North.

He then took to Twitter on Monday night to post an unusual tirade, declaring Kim had actually tried to “lock him up” however Halsey – who struggles with bipolar affective disorder herself – insisted his posts are no laughing matter.

“No jokes right now. I have dedicated my career to offering education and insight about bipolar disorder and I’m so disturbed by what I’m seeing. Personal opinions about someone aside, a manic episode isnt a joke. If you can’t offer understanding or sympathy, offer your silence,” she composed.

“A lot of people you know probably have bipolar disorder and you aren’t aware of it. Taking this opportunity to make offensive remarks and villify people with mental illnesses is really not the way to go…this is the exact triggering s**t that causes people to keep quiet about it (sic).”

Halsey added that people can still disagree with Kanye’s viewpoints or actions,”without contributing to stigma that damages an entire community of sometimes vulnerable people all for a couple of laughs”

“If you wanna think someone is an asshole, go ahead,” she continued. “Lots of people with mental illnesses are great. Lots of them are assholes. Because they are people. With nuanced personalities. But making jokes specifically targeted towards bipolar hurts more than the 1 person ur angry with (sic).”

Concluding her post, Halsey signed off: “Sincerely, Human Being with a Decade Long Bipolar Diagnosis.”

While Kanye has actually spoken formerly about dealing with bipolar affective disorder, neither he nor his team have actually resolved whether or not his current actions become part of an episode.
