I figured it was a little strange that West would have been banned from the White House considering all the other athletes with criminal pasts who had been there, but who am I to challenge West’s word? Turns out someone from the White House is either doing damage control, or Delonte was lying.
Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told the the media that West could have taken part. A team spokeswoman, Sarah Melton, also said West was not banned from the White House ceremony.
So there you go. I’m really guessing that West wasn’t banned and he just went on a rant for his own purposes. Maybe he’s just been feeling down lately and is seeing the world as if everyone is against him. If that’s the case, I hope he’s getting some counseling and advice.
