Kanye West is making a lot of people unhappy right now.

  1. He’s been spilling bits of his philosophical game recently, but it’s someone else’s philosophy he’s endorsing that’s getting him trouble.

    Via Twitter, ‘Ye revealed his support for Candace Owens, a YouTube personality with controversial far right views.

  2. “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” he tweeted on Saturday morning (April 21), and then followed up with, “Only free thinkers.”

    Many on the right, including Roseanne Barr, Richard Armande Mills and Scott Presler praised ‘Ye’s embracing of Owens. Others, including most of his fans, were livid.

  3. Of course, Candace Owens responded and was overjoyed.

    “I’m freaking out. @kanyewest ....please take a meeting with me. I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music,” she tweeted in response. “I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.”

  4. Candace Owens has been hailed as the next Tomi Lahren and rose to fame under the YouTube channel Red Black Pill. She's been featured in videos titled, "WTF? Black Lives Matter Has a List of Demands for White People!" and "How to Escape the Democrat Plantation." She's also made numerous apearances on Fox News and InfoWars.
