Kanye West has been a hot topic of conversation this week after he began a Twitter rant where he dished about almost everything, including his support for President Donald Trump. (West's wife, Kim Kardashian, also said she disagreed with her husband.) Apparently, Legend - or "JL" - then reached out privately to West to ask him to reconsider all the "MAGA" talk. "We are both dragon energy".

The controversy over his statements quickly reached his loved ones, with the massively successful musician and fashion designer saying that his wife Kim Kardashian had called him "and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone".

West added in the same post that he does not agree "with everything anyone does", saying: "That's what makes us individuals".

"While Kanye West takes a stand for freedom of thought and freedom of expression, we should all support this", Hannity instructed viewers.

Mr Trump - who met West when he was President-elect in December 2016 - was keen to share the praise with his own followers, telling the star the comments were "very cool".

Watch out America, Kanye West is going all out to show how different he is and if anyone gets in his way they will feel the wrath and be exposed. "You know what? Donald Trump is your brother", he said. "However artists can not be blind to the reality".

Other celebrities indirectly called the rapper out.

"Finding ways to effect change for that particular issue has been heavy on Kanye's mind for years and he has been talking about it more often, most recently with family and friends", the source said.

In response to Pop Crave, Justin Bieber, BTS, The Weeknd, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Harry Kinds, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Kendrick Lamar are among the many well-known names who unfollowed the rapper.

After taking a 14-minute break, Kanye was back to tweeting about everything from his love for Scooter Braun to his desire to meet with Apple CEO Tim Cook.

But not everyone has condemned West for his controversial statements. He famously went off-script in 2005 during a nationally televised Hurricane Katrina fundraiser and said then-President George W. Bush "doesn't care about black people".

In a follow-up tweet, he added, "Next President gon be independent".
