In a recent Instagram post, Kanye West told fans that he regrets not sticking up for A$AP Bari when he was accused of sexual assault. Dubbing his own move "some pussy shit," West explains that he had been brainwashed by "robots" and that is the reason he didn't step up at the time.

Back in July 2017, Bari was surrounded by sexual assault allegations after a video surfaced that showed him pressuring a naked and distressed woman. "You f****d my assistant, now you’re going to suck my dick," he told her in the video, while ripping bed sheets away from her. She was shown trying to leave the room, while other men watched on. The case has since been dismissed, and Bari has stated that the footage is "misleading."

It is this incident West's post refers to, expressing regret that "perception and cancel culture" had come between them when Bari was, well, cancelled. In the same caption, he mentions that he behaved in the same way with XXXTentacion, who had multiple cases of violent crimes attached to his name before his death earlier this year.
