It is speculated that a new line called ‘Blexit’ reportedly designed by Kanye has been launched by Candace Owens who is a political activist. About this line, Kanye further stated in his twitter account that he introduced Candace who made the logo and evidently they ‘used’ Kanye’s name instead of using theirs. The Blexit campaign was apparently created in order to motivate African Americans to quit the Democratic Party, and thus it created a controversy.

He also said he backs the prison reform and common sense gun laws which would help in creating a safer world. He additionally talked about parents struggling to protect their children from violence and war and ended the statements thanking everyone.
