Kanye West Distances Himself from Politics; Says he Realizes he’s ‘Been Used’

Kanye West took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal he’s had enough of politics.

The outspoken fan of President Trump tweeted: “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”

What caused the change of heart? It’s not entirely clear, but in another tweet, he referenced Blexit – a campaign developed by conservative activist Candace Owens aiming to move African American voters away from the Democratic Party. Owens is communications director for the right-leaning Turning Point USA.

In a tweet, the rapper insisted that he hadn’t wanted any involvement with Blexit, and didn’t design the logo on its clothing, despite her claims that he did.

“I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine,” West tweeted. “I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it.”

Turning Point USA did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Other tweets from West on Tuesday referenced several different social issues.
