Kanye West has been on a different level on Twitter the last few days, and he got everyone shook yesterday when he tweeted out his support for President Trump...which is not exactly something you'd expect Kanye to do.
You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
The internet had mixed feelings about the statement, including Mrs. Kanye herself Kim Kardashian.
my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Anyway, John Legend, a long-time friend of Kanye, definitely noticed the tweet and wasn't sure that Kanye was truly out of his "sunken place". So he texted him.
And, in true Kanye fashion, he posted the text to prove a point.
I tweeted the John text to show that there are people around me that disagree with me and voice their opinion. I respect everyone's opinion but I stand my ground.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018
I really appreciate this dialogue with John Legend because I'm actually very empathetic. Im still the kid from the telethon. I feel when people think of MAGA they don't think of empathy.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018
So, are you team Kanye or Team John Legend?
