I don’t think it’s that accurate to say Candace Owens or Kanye is alt-right unless you want to say anyone who supports trump is alt-right. But then most people on the right would be alt-right which defies the usefulness of the word “alt-right” other than rhetorical usage.
Kanye has recently stated he is moving away from politics because he is being used to forward agendas other than his own, he did not design the blexit merch, Candace Owens and someone else slapped his name on it
One of the reasons I started visiting this sub was because I got tired of all the mixing of politics into fashion on other websites (ie GQ, esquire, etc). It would be a shame if this sub started to become like that in my opinion. I understand the urgency felt in today’s political climate and there are lots of things we need to fix, but not everything needs to be infused with politics.
Kanye is just trying to make money. By supporting Trump he’s been in the news cycle consistently for months. If he was just another one of the many celebrities bashing Trump he wouldn’t be getting anywhere close to the coverage he is now.
