This year, Van Lathan has gone from being known as “the guy on TMZ” to being a surprisingly strong voice in this ongoing race war. Actually, it shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise. While he is a LA journalist for a gossip outlet, he is originally from Louisiana.
Van Lathan garnered a lot of attention, when he took Kanye West to task, over his “slavery is a choice” commentary. Since then, the media has been all over him. Now, he has a much larger platform to speak his mind on the current state of affairs.
Recently, Van Lathan stopped by “The Breakfast Club,” where he spoke to DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God. Still cutting Kanye no slack, he shut down any comments trying to downplay what he said, during his TMZ interview. But, he also spoke on his dramatic weight loss, and “The Red Pill” podcast.
