On Tuesday, Kanye West thrilled ardent Trump critics by announcing that he was “distancing” himself from politics from here on out because it has become clear to him that he’s “been used to spread messages I don’t believe in.” The comment was framed as Kanye officially “breaking up” with the man he’s been incessantly ridiculed for championing.
But in follow-up comments to TMZ Tuesday, West made clear that he wasn’t talking about Trump at all.
“Kanye contacted us to make it clear he did not mention Donald Trump in his tweets, and he’s getting out of politics altogether,” TMZ reported. “As for being ‘used’ … he says he was specifically referencing Blexit, and that’s it.”
