Kanye West Designs Anti-Democrat "Blexit" Merch
Published Oct 29, 2018Kanye West is once again voicing controversial political opinions, this time by designing "Blexit" merch.
The phrase refers to a movement encouraging the exit of black voters from the Democratic Party as an act of rebellion and is championed by the likes of conservative figure Candace Owens.
Owens unveiled the new line of West-designed shirts and hats on Saturday (October 27) at the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, DC.
"Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colours, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West," she said.
Of course, by calling him a superhero, she is referring to the rapper's recent stint on Saturday Night Live, during which he wore a Make America Great Again hat and declared that it made him feel like a superhero. Naturally, Owens defended him at the time.
Following his controversial rant, West met with Donald Trump himself at the White House earlier this month.
