Kanye Says He Didn’t Design Blexit Logo And Is Backing Away From Politics



Rapper Kanye West posted a series of tweets yesterday stating that he is distancing himself from politics after being used and misrepresented.

West went on to elaborate on what his beliefs are and denied his involvement with the design of a Blexit logo.

The ‘Candace’ referenced in West’s tweet is Candace Owens, the person behind Blexit, a political movement promoting the exit of African-Americans from the Democratic party.

“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,” said Owens. West denied designing the logo in his tweet and denounced any association with Blexit.

Despite West’s earlier public proclamations of support for President Donald Trump, West’s Twitter outline of his beliefs appears to be more left-leaning than that of the Trump administration with West specifically supporting common sense gun control. West’s comment on asylum seekers and parents protecting their children from violence and war is also a stark contrast from the Trump administrations order to send 5,200 active-duty troops to the U.S. southern border in anticipation of the arrival of a caravan of asylum-seeking Central American migrants.

In contrast to yesterdays Twitter blast, West, sporting Trump’s signature ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, went on a tirade off-camera at a taping of Saturday Night Live in September, where he lectured the attending audience on racism and his support of Trump.

West’s wife Kim Kardashian offered an explanation of his behavior at the Saturday Night Live taping in an interview with Van Jones, stating that his communication skills could use some work and that he is sometimes misunderstood.

“I always say this: It takes him about four years to write a song – to explain, to communicate what he wants to say,” said Kardashian. “So when he tweets something in two minutes, what’s going on in his mind he thinks and what he’s trying to say… He might not be the best communicator. But he has the best heart and I know what he means.”

A few weeks after the SNL taping, West visited Trump at the White House where he spoke at length with the president on a myriad of issues that included prison reform, racism, and mental health.
