The rapper is in hot water on social media once again due to the fact that he dropped a line of T-shirts reading ‘Blexit’ that encourages black voters to exit the Democratic Party! A lot of people took to their platforms to slam Kanye West for creating yet another controversy.
After his outrageous rants supporting Donald Trump at the White House but also in an Apple Store, Kanye decided to mix his passion for politics with the one for fashion and created ‘Brexit’ which advocates a ‘black exit’ from the Democratic Party.
The new line of T-shirts was debuted at the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, yesterday.
The said event was organized by the conservative group Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens.
Here’s how social media users reacted to Ye’s message!
‘And this is why we need to stop buying his merchandise all together,’ one person wrote.
Someone else commented: ‘So y’all just going to let him continue with this foolishness? We are taking an L for this one.’
‘Why does he think black people are blind or sheep or dumb? I hate how they keep acting like the black community is incapable of independent thought! We just collectively do not like Donald Trump, and sadly he represents this entire party. Even if their views may not be the same as his, he is still their spokesperson,’ a third post reads.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail reports that at the event, Owens told the crowd: ‘Blexit is a renaissance and I’m blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West. West has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.’
