The Roast Continues: Shaun King, Bevy Smith And Others Are All Over Kanye For Candace Owens Cosign

So much for taking his philosophy seriously.

Published April 22, 2018

Kanye West is catching hella heat for endorsing Candace Owens, a far right YouTube personality who claims she’s made her “journey off the plantation.”

  1. The right is understandably happy about it. It’s also not the first time ‘Ye has dabbled with the MAGA folks. Remember when he met with Donald Trump in Trump Tower right after 45 was elected?

  2. Yeah, well now he’s once again showing his strange stripes. “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” he tweeted, then followed up with: “only free thinkers.”

    In response, a bunch of famous “free thinkers” gave their thoughts about Kanye’s endorsement. Yesterday (April 21), we brought you instant reaction to the Owens co-sign, but now we’re selecting some of the best reasons why this whole thing is dangerous.

  3. Shaun King Went at both 'Ye and Owens in this beautiful thread
  4. Bevy Smith also went in...
  5. Raquel Willis, a National Organizer with the Trans Law Center, gave her thoughts
  6. Others of note also weighed in...
  7. Oh yeah, and then Candace Owens responded, with a video explaining her ideology, which is disturbing to say the least

    What do you think about this whole saga? Let us know in the comment section below.
