Kanye West (or someone tweeting from Kanye West’s account) took to Twitter this afternoon to announce that he is stepping back from talking about politics and will now be completely focused on being creative—something everyone has been urging him to do for a while now, but he just wouldn’t listen.


Ye (or someone using his account) wrote: “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 !!!”

The tweet came at the end of a longer string of tweets in which West (or whoever was tweeting from his account) acknowledged (sorta) both sides of the police brutality issue; said he supports creating jobs and opportunities for people who deserve them; prison reform; and “common-sense gun laws that make our world safer.”

West thanked his family, loved ones and community for supporting his “ACTUAL beliefs” and “vision for a better world.”


He then said that he never wanted any part of “Blexit” and intimated that his name was associated with that topic after introducing Candace [Owens] to the person who made the logo.


We cannot say without question that it was actually Kanye who tweeted this. Even though this is his Twitter account, the whole world knows his phone password now, so it’s anybody’s guess as to who actually wrote those words that sounded much more coherent than anything Ye has tweeted for a while now.


In fact, I would go so far as to say it almost sounds like someone trying to write the way Kanye would write if he had the sense to say the right thing.

As it stands, we know he doesn’t. The latest episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians hint that Kim and her mama Kris might be working up to eliminating Kanye Kris Humphries style, so there’s no telling where the tweet came from.


Was it Kris? Was it Khlorenthal? Was it Kourtney? Or was it Kim, trying to save face in an arranged marriage that seems to be slowly blowing up in her plastic face?

Either way, welcome back, Kanye? I guess? If that really is you.

We’ve been tricked by you before, so we just can’t be sure anymore.
