Liberal activist-turned-conservative operative Candace Owens is horrified that Kanye West said she used him to promote her Blexit movement. Consequently, Owens went onto her personal blog to offer a mea culpa for his abrupt exit from politics and distancing himself from Owens.
Kanye, as rolling out reported, blasted Owens and her Blexit (Black exit from the Democratic Party) movement and proclaiming to the world that he had nothing to do with it.
“My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”
Kanye, 41, also clarified his positions on prison reform, immigration, and gun control during his latest Twitter tirade.
Candace responded on her blog titled “808 and Heartbreak” that she is crushed after Kanye publicly shredded her:
“Let me first say, to those that have relished in my hurt and pain:
“If knowing that I bleed and that I hurt brings you comfort and celebration— then there is no question that you won last night.
“Celebrate. Be comforted. If I had to imagine what it would feel like to have a bullet pierce my heart, it would be exactly like the moment I learned Kanye told the world he felt I had used him.
“I wouldn’t wish the way I felt last night upon my worst enemy.”
Owens also issued an apology to Donald Trump as many people automatically assumed that Kanye’s retreat from politics meant that he was also abandoning Trump. Kanye reiterated that he is still on Trump’s team.
“I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT. This is a lie that seems to have made its way around the world; a lie I would like to again correct for the record. Kanye was completely right to feel used in that regard and as I have done personally, I would like to publicly apologize to him for any undue stress or pain the effort to correct that rumor has caused him, his business relationships, or his family. He simply never designed them.
“I would also like to publicly apologize to President Trump, as I know that Kanye’s tweets were rapidly misinterpreted as a shot to this administration.
His tweets were aimed at me and me only, rightfully, for my personal failings.
I bare full responsibility.”
You can read the totality of Owen’s statement on her blog.
Rapper Talib Kweli was among those who celebrated Kanye’s awakening, and he wrote this message to Kanye on Instagram:
“Me and @kanyewest started an album together last January. That same month Candace Owens trolled me on twitter and her followers called me all types of niggers and monkeys for months. Hey Ye it’s probably time to revisit this one… lyrics are timely AF. Welcome back.”
