The Funniest Tweets About Kanye West's Embarrassing Foray Into Politics

Kanye West tweets that he likes the way far-right personality Candace Owens “thinks”

After Kanye caused a firestorm of controversy this weekend by co-signing far-right pundit Candace Owens, who says racial oppression doesn't exist, Ebro called a friend of Kanye's who had left a comment under an Instagram post he made.

We all know how Kanye West faced criticism by some of his fans for his support of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential race when the two met at the Trump Tower in New York City and happily posed for pictures later.

Owens, the communications director for Turning Point USA, said she believes an "ideological civil war" is happening with African-American people. I can't help but read each tweet in the voice of the Dude, the slouching, bathrobe-swaddled antihero of the "The Big Lebowski": "Get past the past, man".

This drew the ire of numerous rapper's followers, considering Owens has been highly critical of the Black Lives Matter movement. Her blog series, "The Myth of the "Coon" has featured YouTube video titles such as, "I Don't Care About Charlottesville, the KKK, or White Supremacy" in the wake of the neo-nazi rally in Virginia in 2017. Just hours earlier, the conservative commentator had shut down a Black Lives Matter protest at UCLA and told the protesters that they were giving in to "victim mentality".




After seeing Kanye's tweet about her, Owens tweeted, "I'm freaking out". You come in here with more emotions than they ever had when they were living through it. "You're overly privileged Americans". More of his tweets echoed the same sentiments as Owens, arguing that Black people must become free thinkers and "move on" from the past.

Overall, however, it doesn't seem like West is necessarily trying to make a pro-conservative statement with his tweets. In "44 More", Logic chastises rappers for their glorification of frivolous spending: "You in the club throwin' dollars/ but I'm savin' mine so my kids go to college". "Self-victimization is a disease".

"Bey and Jay's stance about Kanye over the past few years is that he will only publicly speak on issues that affect black people when it fits his agenda or when he wants to promote something".
