Kanye West, everyone’s least favorite MAGA hat wearing rapper, is now trying to distance himself from claims that he designed the recent “Blexit” t-shirts designed to encourage Black people to leave the Democrat party.
The t-shirts made their debut during last weekend’s Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit where a bunch of Kanye-lites descended upon the nation’s capital to declare their love for Donald Trump. TPUSA’s Communications Director Candace Owens, announced the t-shirts by tweeting out “NO MORE ENSLAVED MINDS. AMERICA FIRST.”
It was also Owens, West’s new bff, who stated that he was the one to design the shirts:
“Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West,” Owens said, adding that West “has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”
But hold up, wait a minute. West is now denying he had anything to do with the line and says he’s leaving politics. West was temporarily removed from the Sunken Place and allowed access to Twitter, and he tweeted:
I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine. I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it.
