KANYE WEST ‘DISTANCING’ HIMSELF FROM POLITICS

After stirring up controversy for his political views, Kanye West has seemingly had a change of heart.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday (Oct. 30), the rapper says he’s “distancing” himself from politics after Candace Owens used his name on shirts supporting the “Blexit” (Black Exit) campaign to encourage African-Americans to leave the Democratic Party. But according to Kanye, the designs are not his and he has nothing to do with Blexit.

Owens, a conservative political activist and Trump supporter, debuted the shirt designs during a meeting for the Young Black Leadership Summit of young black conservatives in Washington, D.C. over the weekend.

“Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West,” Owens told the crowd. “[West] has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”

The T-shirts, which include the phrases “Blexit” and “We Free,” are available online for $25-28. Following his tweets, Kanye’s name has been removed from the site.
