"I don't think you get that the ENTIRE first world rests and replies upon a systematically oppressed underclass of primarily black and brown bodies to provide free labor and free resources in order to secure it's freedoms". "I love the way Candace Owens thinks", tweeted. This weekend, Yeezy fired off a surprising tweet at one of the most controversial far-right media personalities, Candace Owens.
Owens said Sunday on "Fox & Friends" that after West's tweet, she received a great amount of backlash.
"I took them on because I believe that their ideas are poisonous". I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music.
"In about 10 seconds I became the KKK member, anti-LGBT, you name it", she said. "How could you try and minimize the sufferance of your fellow black Americans and the entirety of our ancestry just to promote even more baseless social ideologies??" West's tweet garnered a lot of reaction -- supporters of President Donald Trump were quick to respond to the tweet, including Roseanne Barr, the star of the television show Roseanne. She's also the communications director of "Turning Point U.S.A", a non-profit right-wing outfit. He made his thoughts known about a video of Owens speaking at an event for "Turning Point USA" at UCLA, in which she talked about victimhood and how African-Americans shouldn't call themselves oppressed, because of this a Black Lives Matter protest broke out.
But it's Kanye West's fans who had no problem letting him know of their frustration for his support of Owens.
Aside from tweeting at Candace Owens on Twitter, Kanye West also announced that he is dropping a new album on June 1st and also dropping a joint album with Kid Cudi on June 8th.
