Candace Owens Apologizes To Trump & Kanye West – I Never Said Kanye Designed Blexit
In Kanye West’s statement(s) distributed via Twitter on Tuesday, he confirmed he would no longer allow himself to be used to push narratives he doesn’t believe in, including Blexit, the organization created by extreme conservative Candace Owens. News spread about West designing wearable merchandise for Blexit, and the artist took to Twitter to clarify how he never designed anything for the organization and how he felt used.
Owens has released a statement of apology to West and Donald Trump for the miscommunication.In a blog post, she wrote:
If I had to imagine what it would feel like to have a bullet pierce my heart, it would be exactly like the moment I learned Kanye told the world he felt I had used him. I wouldn’t wish the way I felt last night upon my worst enemy. I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT. This is a lie that seems to have made its way around the world; a lie I would like to again correct for the record. Kanye was completely right to feel used in that regard and as I have done personally, I would like to publicly apologize to him for any undue stress or pain the effort to correct that rumor has caused him, his business relationships, or his family. He simply never designed them.
I would also like to publicly apologize to President Trump, as I know that Kanye’s tweets were rapidly misinterpreted as a shot to this administration. His tweets were aimed at me and me only, rightfully, for my personal failings. I bare full responsibility. There is no manual to any of this. I wake up everyday, and I do what I think is right. And today, this is what I feel in my heart to be right.
Upon the dawning of Blexit, Owens stated,
Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West.
Blexit was designed to promote and encourage black people to leave the Democratic party. Kanye has yet to respond to Candace’s apology.
