MUSIC- American rapper Kanye West has tweeted about spiritual guru Mata Amritanandamayi who is also known as the hugging saint.

Known among her followers as "Amma," which means "mother", Amritanandamayi has devotees in India and the rest of the world. 

On Monday, Kanye tweeted how everyone needs hugs sometimes. He then shared Mata Amritanandamayi’s picture and wrote, “Amma Mata had given over 32 million hugs.”

West has posted various controversial tweets in the past one month, ever since he re-activated his account. His tweets in support of US President Donald Trump, and then saying that the enslavement of African Americans over centuries may have been “a choice” have caused huge stir on social media.
