Kanye’s slave tweet triggers celebs. Ben Shapiro steps in for backup … and much needed history lessons

Kanye is blowing minds, and he’s not slowing down.

Kanye West burst back onto the political scene last month when he fired off a tweet praising young, conservative African-American activist Candace Owens.

Seven little words from Kanye – I like the way Candace Owens thinks – blew up the internet and became a “news” story on television and late-night shows.

The famous rapper has been going at it ever since and dropped a doozy truth-tweet on Democrats that he’s since taken down. The following is reportedly a screenshot of a text conversation Kanye had with friend.

Kanye did tweet the short exchange that set off a firestorm of backlash from some of his famous friends. Trump-hating singer John Legend hasn’t appreciated Kanye’s open-minded deep-dive into politics and reportedly responded with the following:

The long-winded JL went on to tell a widely believed tale that “the Party of Lincoln” morphed into the Confederacy after having won a long, bloody, hard-fought battle in the Civil War. Because, that make sense.

Another celeb who goes by “Charlamagne tha God” also chimed in, telling Kanye he needs to “fact check” before tweeting:

The pressure seemed enough for Kanye to remove his tweets, but the firestorm he ignited raged on. The fact that Kanye was seen meeting with conservative activists Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk hours before only added fuel to the left’s collective fire.

The young activists must have made an impression, because Kanye later tweeted quotes by black conservative icon Thomas Sowell:

Ben Shapiro also chimed in to do some informing of his own. In other words, step aside John Legend, you’re out of your league here.

Shapiro also tweeted Kanye an informative video via Prager University:

Is it any wonder why the Democrat-run schools don’t teach American history? It looks like many kids are getting “informed” by ignorant celebrities, and that’s more than fine by them.
