Kanye West Eats The Red Pill From Candace Owens

Kanye West Eats The Red Pill From Candace Owens

"West giving his nod of approval to Owens didn't sit well with many of his 11 million followers" on Twitter, The Wrap explained.

Owens spoke to the Fox & Friends weekend hosts today and said she's being attacked because "I think differently and I refuse to accept this narrative that I'm a victim".

On Sunday, the rapper was back to tweeting about the need for "freedom of thought", blasting "self victimization". West famously met with President-elect Trump at Trump Tower in Manhattan during the transition period in December 2016, which prompted an adverse reaction from his fans.

But she wasn't the only one liberals tried to sting, turning their ire on hip hop artist Kanye West for voicing his support. "I'm not far right-I'm free", she tweeted. She has also challenged actor Don Cheadle, an ideological adversary, to a public debate with the proceeds going to charity. Owens earlier oversaw the group's "urban engagement". "Black people that are focused on their past and shouting about slavery and black people that are focused on their futures", she said. And I won't stop fighting until all black Americans see that.

But for Owens, engaging urban communities has at times meant attempting to dismantle arguments about white privilege put forward by black activists and the Democratic Party.

She recently went off on Black Lives Matter protesters at an event, telling the hosts she just thinks "their ideas are poisonous". When Trump was elected as president, West was photographed with him at Trump Towers in NY.
