Kanye West applauds Black Lives Matter critic; Twitter responds: ‘This is so disturbing’

Kanye West voiced his liking of outspoken, alt-right YouTube personality Candace Owens on Saturday, sending Twitter into a tizzy.

Owens – a frequent guest on Fox News and InfoWars — launched a website and YouTube channel in 2017 called Red Pill Black, which promotes black conservatism. She has hailed President Trump as not “just the leader of the free world, but the savior of it as well,” and has been known to blast Black Lives Matter.

It was only seven words from the music mogul about Owen that created the ruckus: “I like how Candace Owen thinks.”

Upon seeing West’s endorsement, Owens quickly responded: “I’m freaking out. @kanyewest ….please take a meeting with me. I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music. I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.”

West giving his nod of approval to Owens didn’t sit well with many of his 11 million followers.

Candace Owens has proven to be anti-Black, anti-LGBTQ and fact-hating.
(Honestly, there are so many more descriptors.)

But Owens held her ground and clarified her perspective of the black community.

West met in December 2016 with then President-elect Donald Trump. TMZ reported at the time that West requested a 15-minute meeting with Trump, who later told reporters, “We discussed life.” Two months later, West deleted all of his tweets supportive of the new president.
