Kanye West Announces He's Distancing Himself from Politics

Ye, 41, added: "I would like to thank my family, loved ones, and community for supporting my ACTUAL beliefs and my vision for a better world".

"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", Owens told the crowd.

On Twitter on Tuesday, West said he supports prison reform, common-sense gun laws and compassion for people seeking asylum, then denied that he had designed a logo for a branding exercise known as "Blexit", which urges African Americans to leave the Democratic party.

Kanye also took the time to distance himself from the controversial Blexit fashion line, promoted by Candace, which is supposed to encourage black people to exit the Democratic party.

The T-shirts, which include the phrases "Blexit" and "We Free", are available online for $25-28. On Monday, as controversy grew, she released a statement playing down his role, insisting: "BLEXIT is a project that is mine entirely". Monday, she tweeted that West has "totally different political beliefs than mine" and had only pointed her toward a designer, but the damage had already been done among wavering West fans who considered his alleged support of Brexit a step too far. "I have nothing to do with it", West said.

West - a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump - said he's been "used" to spread messages he doesn't believe in.

West also claims that he will be steering away from politics and "completely focusing on being creative".

West's support for the president culminated in a freakish, ten-minute rant broadcast from the Oval Office, ostensibly called to address prison reform, in which he denied having bipolar depression, claimed that Black people "really get caught up in the idea of racism over the idea of industry", and said that "Make America Great Again" bothers Black people because "time is a myth".

It's unclear whether Kanye still stands with Trump and other Republican leaders as we lead into the midterm elections. Most notably, a CNN panel slammed the successful businessman as uneducated and a "token negro".
