This has been a really mixy week for celebrity twitter with Kanye West opening up about his love and support for "45"-Donald Trump, which ended up taking the internet by storm. Kanye instantly lost 9.2 million twitter followers in 10 minutes and support from most of the black community, who already believe he is in "the sunken place."
He's received a lot of backlash and concern from many of his fans, as well as many celebrities such as John Legend and Janelle Monae. However, he has also received support from his wife Kim Kardashian and his Chicago brother Chance The Rapper.

You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Chance has shown his support for Kanye in a tweet stating- "Talked to him two days ago. He’s in a great space and not affected by folk tryna question his mental or physical health. Same Ye from the Vmas, same Ye from the telethon." and later stating that "Black people don't have to be democrats."
Donnie took to twitter to thank Kanye & Chance for their support, which led Chance to save his name and make it very clear that he supports Kanye who he calls his "family", but does not support Donald Trump by any means.
Chance posted a long message on Twitter this morning (Fri. Apr 27th), stating that he only spoke out in defense of Kanye because he loves him and couldn't bear sitting back and watch him being attacked. However, he does not stand behind Donald Trump's agenda and would "never support anyone who has made a career out of hatred, racism and discrimination."

To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018
