John Legend

After Kanye West's surprising meeting with president-elect Donald Trump Tuesday, a number of artists have spoken out. The latest—and closest to Kanye—is G.O.O.D. Music affiliate John Legend.

In an interview with French outlet Clique, Legend had some harsh words for the meeting, which he called a "publicity stunt." 

"I don't think it's impossible to talk to [Donald Trump] about issues, but I won't be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt," he said. He went on to express frustration and disappointment in the rapper he's frequently collaborated with over the years. "I'm pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country. I think the things he's promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing," he said. When the interviewer asked if Kanye perhaps had something else in mind by meeting with Trump, Legend continued to be dismissive. "Whatever's in his mind, I disagree with him," he said.

Legend is hardly the only person to vocally disagree with Kanye West's Trump meeting. Twitter was on fire Tuesday with people denouncing the visit. Still, as a member of Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music collective, it's a lot bigger of a deal coming from John Legend than from the Twitter mafia. You can watch his comments in the video clip above.
