Black celebrities who once revered Kanye West are now reconsidering their praise for the Chicago rapper after his recent tweets proclaiming support for President Donald Trump.

Chance the Rapper was one of a few celebrities that stood by Yeezy as Black Twitter came for West's neck. But other high-profile stars were not willing to let the man who once said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” during a Hurricane Katrina relief telethon off the hook. According to Mic, a slew of celebrities dropped Ye and unfollowed him on Twitter. Big names like John Legend, Kendrick, Rihanna, Big Sean and others jumped ship.

Singer Macy Gray posted an Instagram photo of her wearing a "Make Kanye Great Again" hat alluding to that 2005 moment.

A few days before Kanye revealed his MAGA hat on Twitter, entertainer Janelle Monáe spoke to Ebro in the Morning about Yeezy’s open support for conservative personality Candace Owens.

"Well, one, I don't agree with him if that is true, and he’s supporting anybody who thinks that, then I don't agree with him at all," Janelle said.

"I believe in freethinking, but I don’t believe in freethinking if it's rooted in or at the expense of the oppressed. If your freethinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to opress black people and minorities, I think it's bullshit and it's not OK. I will speak out against it and I will think freely and tell you that I don't agree with you."

Mega-producer Lena Waithe took it old school and drew a glaring comparison to O.J. Simpson's anti-blackness and Kanye.  

But for others, like radio host Ebro from his self-titled show, Kanye is on his last legs and can compete with other rappers. This is a publicity stunt to stoke interest. 

The most biting criticism came from singer John Legend, who had to take Ye back to school. 

All the while Kanye's tweetstorm was lighting up the Twittersphere, rapper J. Cole, who recently released his album KOD, had to get a shot in. (The simple tweet referenced Ye's announcement about collaborating with Nas.)
