Kanye West’s Twitterverse return was a delightfully unexpected surprise of 2018 for fans everywhere after ghosting on all social media platforms for a while.
His philosophical fashion upgraded a bit, however, as the GOOD Music superior released 280-character gems in a first-ever digital philosophy book unfolding right before the internet’s eyes and addressed some of his social and political controversy. The excitement of Yeezy’s social media homecoming quickly spiraled downward after his head-turning commentary supporting folks like Candace Owens, who has voiced her support for Donald Trump, and expressing his own immovable “love” for the polarizing White House occupant.
The descent only deepened on Wednesday (April 25) when Kanye posted a photo of himself sporting Trump’s hand-signed red cap and his presidential tagline, “Make America Great Again”—despite his wife, Kim Kardashian, arguing that Yeezy doesn’t align himself with Trump’s politics. Even still, an exclusive report from The Blast holds that the Kardashian family believes that Ye has “never been better,” and is “perfection” even. Kim’s latest flurry of tweets might attest to that.
However, here’s five of his latest behavioral controversies that point in the opposite direction:
