Kanye West dragged for supporting Black Trump defender Candace Owens

Owens is a frequent guest on Fox News and is the founder of Red Pill Black, a website and YouTube channel that targets right-wing Blacks.

"I love the way Candace Owens thinks", Kanye said of Owens on Twitter.

Owens was subject to vast controversy in 2016 when she attempted to crowdfund a website ostensibly aimed at halting cyberbullying, which critics denounced as an elaborate means of outing and doxing the identities of anonymous internet users.

Trump supporter Candace Owens got a shout-out from none other than Kanye West yesterday, and this morning she appeared on Fox & Friends to talk about it and the reaction it's gotten. In December 2016, West made an impromptu visit to Trump Tower in New York City and posed silently next to then-President Elect Trump. Kanye West appeared to concur with Owens' belief on victimhood, tweeting Sunday afternoon, "self victimization is a disease".

"I think that's what Kanye West and myself represents to the black community and that makes them very nervous", she added.

In a July 2016 article published by the Samford Advocate, Owens said police shootings of black men in the USA are not about racism. Her blog series, "The Myth of the "Coon" has featured YouTube video titles such as, "I Don't Care About Charlottesville, the KKK, or White Supremacy" in the wake of the neo-nazi rally in Virginia in 2017.

In response to some of the tweets criticizing her and West for endorsing her, Owens said, "It's pretty typical of the left".

To understand what I mean by questionable, here are some of her worst takes. Take one look at the people happy about it and that tells you all you need to know.

Today, however, throngs of Kanye critics are dragging the rapper out of his Beverly Hills home and all the way back to his Chicago hometown after he gave his endorsement of right-wing Donald Trump-lover Candace Owens.
