Chicago rappers Kanye West and Chance the Rapper are feeling the wrath of Black Twitter after the two challenged preconceived notions about black support of the Democratic Party. 

Yeezy's return to Twitter has been something else. By proclaiming his support for Trump, posting photos of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) hat and ranting about how he and the president both possess "dragon energy" has forced longtime fans off the bandwagon.

Many from the MAGA crowd have embraced "The Life of Pablo" rapper as one of their own. As the backlash against him ramped up, Chance the Rapper came to the rescue of his friend and collaborator tweeting, "Black people don’t have to be Democrats."   

Black Twitter was not having the nonsense because many believe that supporting Trump is the same as supporting racism, homophobia, xenophobia and bigotry. Fans of both rappers were quick to point out how disappointed they were with them:

Many also lambasted Chance for being so woke about recent incidents like an offensive Heineken ad, but not being able to see the effects of issuing comments like "black people don’t have to be Democrats." It sends a bad message to a Republican Party hijacked by neo-Nazis, white nationalists like Richard B. Spencer and former Ku Klux Klan member David Duke.   

Others called for more criticism aimed at Chance for supporting and collaborating with beleaguered R&B singer R. Kelly despite a mountain of damning sexual misconduct allegations. 

Users also alluded to Trump's many racialized aggressions targeting black journalists on Twitter, black NFL players for protesting and his policies that target disenfranchised people. In one year, Trump has targeted all groups at least once. And there is no forgetting the reports of Trump allegedly calling majority black nations "sh*thole countries." 

Although Chance did not specifically announce his support of Trump, he might as well have. Donald Trump Jr. retweeted him, and scores of MAGA faithfuls have become new Chance fans.
