I Regret To Inform You That Kanye West Is Cancelled

All good things must come to an end, and today that good thing is “my undying love and admiration for Kanye West.” As we all know, Yeezy has been on a bit of a Twitter spree these past few days, and at first it was all good. He was just tweeting things like “we should be like water” and “the world is our office.” You know, typical Kanye shit. Sadly, things changed dramatically today and Kanye’s tweets about Donald Trump mean that he is cancelled until further notice. As a wise man once said – I miss the old Kanye.

This shit all started last week when, amidst a flurry of tweets about “free thinking,” Kanye praised Candace Owens. If you’re wondering who tf Candace Owens is — congrats! You don’t watch alt-right YouTube. Candace is a black conservative woman whose main claim to fame is thinking Black Lives Matter are a bunch of whiners, and that liberalism has enslaved the minds of African Americans, who need to free themselves by becoming “free thinkers” aka “Fox News junkies.” Grool.

Hmmm…Kanye I’ma let you finish but, “thinking” is not how I would classify what Candace Owens does. This, combined with the fact that Kanye casually met with President-Elect Trump at Trump Tower in 2016 (approximate 334,530,304 scandals ago) already put Yeezy on shaky ground, but today was the final blow:

I have so many questions. Namely, is dragon energy what is keeping Trump alive despite his McDonalds obsession? Also, what does Kim think about this? Also also, did Caitlyn convert Kanye to conservatism? (Say that five times fast.)

Kanye followed up with:

Sooo….half of Kanye’s friends support Trump. I guess that’s what happens when you’re rich. I need to know what percent of that fifty percent has the last name “Kardashian” ASAP.

So where does The New Kanye’s love of Trump come from? According to Hot 97 host Ebro Darden, Kanye told him during an interview that he “reached out to Obama for years” to have a meeting but Obama was — for some insane reason — busy with other things. Trump, on the other hand, met with Kanye right away. Take from that what you will.

If I had to hazard a guess, this also might have to do with the fact that Obama famously called Kanye a “jackass” in an interview and never apologized. Just sayin…

So RIP Kanye (specifically, The Old Kanye), who is cancelled until further notice. Also if anyone wants to go in on a bet with me, I’d put money on him calling his next album some variation of “Make America Think Again.” How depressing…

UPDATE: In the time it took took to post this article, Kanye also tweeted this clarification, which is important only because it shows that Kim is not down for any of this nonsense:

Damn. Can’t wait for the KUWTK episode where we get to see that phone call. In addition to updating us about his marriage, Kanye has also tweeted this, which is open to interpretation:
