Kanye West is in the news again, Surprised… not really. This time Kanye, who met with then President elect Donald Trump back in December has deleted a series of tweets defending that controversial meeting as well as supporting the contentious political figure. Speculation on the web ran rampant that by deleting the tweets he was withdrawing his support for Trump.
The kerfuffle all started when Kanye was seen meeting with the then President elect at Trump Tower. He was shown smiling and posing for pictures with the unpopular figurehead when many from the community where looking to high profile celebrities such as West to distance themselves from the President elect. Kanye not only defied those wishes but went on to say “If I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump” .
The since deleted tweets ran the gamut from defensive (“I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,”) to flagrant disregard of his haters (he later tweeted a copy of Time with Trump on the cover and signed “To Kanye you are a great friend thanks”). Kanye has not publicy stated his purpose in deleted said tweets but being the outspoken personality that he is we can only assume he has done it to make a statement.
