While on the one hand, Kanye’s return to Twitter has gifted us all with the promise of four new G.O.O.D music albums, including one Kanye and Kid Cudi album and one solo project. On the other hand, though, Kanye took to Twitter earlier today to tweet one of his most controversial opinions yet: that he likes the way conservative pundit and YouTuber Candace Owens “thinks.”
I love the way Candace Owens thinks— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018
Candace Owens, who has been hailed as the next Tomi Lahren, rose to fame as the creator of YouTube channel Red Black Pill. Some of the titles of her videos include: “How to Escape the Democrat Plantation” and “WTF? Black Lives Matter Has a List of Demands for White People!” Her online success subsequently led to a story on Breitbart, an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, and several appearances on Fox News and InfoWars. (She loved Kanye’s shout out, by the way.)
Kanye’s co-sign of Candace has been hailed by many as a dangerous move, considering how many fans he has and just how questionable Candace’s rhetoric can be.
To understand what I mean by questionable, here are some of her worst takes.
