Kanye West's Tweet About Candace Owens Has Twitter Divided

Posted by

Twitter – Kanye West wouldn’t be Kanye West if he didn’t stir up some controversy. On Saturday morning (April 21), the often elusive Hip Hop giant, who recently returned to Twitter after a long hiatus, tweeted about conservative commentator Candace Owens, causing an uproar on the social media platform.

“I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” West wrote.

Owens — a staunch supporter of Donald Trump — replied, “I’m freaking out. @kaynewest ….please take a meeting with me. I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music. I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.”

As some people struggled to make sense of his sentiment, others were vocal about their support for Owens and applauded West’s “free thinking.”

But then there were those who were outspoken about West’s seemingly anti-black “policies and positions,” and questioned his sanity. Strange Famous mastermind Sage Francis even claimed there’s a throne reserved for him in the sunken place, a reference to the psychological thriller Get Out. 

Perhaps those simply begging for wife Kim Kardashian-West to prevent West from tweeting and imploring him it to stop altogether have the right idea. But with a new solo album and collaboration with Kid Cudi — Kids See Ghost — both coming in June, this likely won’t be the last people hear from Kanye West.
