Kanye West Suggests Candace Owens ‘Used’ Him To Push Blexit: ‘I Have Nothing To Do With It’

Welp, it looks like it’s trouble in paradise for Turning Point USA and Candace Owens.

Months after hip-hop megastar Kanye West catapulted the TPUSA communications director into national relevance by saying he liked how she thinks, sparking his public embrace of all things MAGA, West has seemingly distanced himself from both Owens and the young conservative organization.

In a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, the ‘Stronger’ rapper highlighted that he was not the designer of the logo for Blexit, despite what Owens had told Fox News earlier this week.

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

He added, “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 !!!”

Owens has claimed that “Kanye saw my original design, and said, ‘I can do it better.’ It certainly was. He redesigned the logo with vibrant colors inspired by his trip to Uganda.”

After West was tied to the movement following the release of the logo, Owens took to Twitter to release a statement explaining that the movement was all hers and that the press was using his name to “create drama.” She also said he helped her design the logo and introduced her to a designer.

It has been a rough past few days for Owens. Last week, she deleted a tweet claiming that it was an absolute certainty that the bomb scare targeting high-profile Demnocrats was a false flag.
