' Writer and activist Shaun King believes this viral video is what prompted West's tweet.
I love the way Candace Owens thinks— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018'
'The influential hip hop producer's tweet quickly went viral with personalities on the right, who may not have been fans of his before, celebrated him for "waking up." They applauded him for getting black people off of "Democratic plantation".
I am told this is the clip that Kanye saw and loved.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) April 21, 2018'
It’s sad actually. For him and for her.
A market has always and will always exist for men and women like this who say what bigoted white folk love to hear.
They will always have a seat at somebody’s table. https://t.co/TggV6JtW0I
' Black Twitter has already questioned Yeezy's political leanings before when he visited President Donald Trump after his election win in 2016.

Candace Owens is an extreme Uncle Tom who is homophobic and transphobic as fuck. She once said Black men getting shot by police isn’t about racism and this is who y'all favorite rapper now wants to give a platform to? Dangerous af. https://t.co/OKh6uS7Nqy— 🥀 (@MJFinesseLover) April 21, 2018'

Candace Owens has proven to be anti-Black, anti-LGBTQ and fact-hating.— Raquel Willis (@RaquelWillis_) April 21, 2018'
(Honestly, there are so many more descriptors.)
For Kanye to align himself with her is messy and dangerous.
I really defended Kanye West. I love Kim and I think he is a good artist but he's gone way too far at this point. Candace Owens? Really? What would his mother say about that? He's a joke and a caricature of himself at this point.— Shady McGrady (@downtheline18) April 21, 2018'

Wasn’t he ranting about “facing bigotry” in the fashion world a couple years ago? Or is that conversation over because he got white ppl across the country to wear shirts with bullet holes in them??— Meaux (@Mz_MAH28) April 22, 2018'
#CandaceOwens Is actually mad she doesn't realise shes upholding white supremacy and is a "victim" of oppression by even speaking those same words. What a mess... it's embarrassing.@kanyewest shame on you for supporting her but then again you been in the sunken place for yrs 🤨 pic.twitter.com/4xXHF17ELh— The Celestial Policeman (@darnellydaniels) April 22, 2018'
'Even with all of the controversy, Yeezy is still tweeting to promote clothing and other projects.
