Chance The Rapper Apologizes To Fans After Donald Trump Thanks Him On Twitter

The Donald Trump/Kanye West social media love affair has been one of the biggest talking points of the week, and countless celebrities have chimed in with their thoughts on the matter, though Chance The Rapper is now regretting his involvement.

While stars like John Legend and Janelle Monae criticized West’s support of the president, Chance was one of the few musicians to stand by the Life of Pablo rapper. On Wednesday, the Chicago native tweeted that he’d spoken to West and that he was in “a great space.”

Trump has delighted in West’s kind comments, taking to Twitter on Friday morning to address the West situation. He also thanked Chance alongside the pastor and Trump supporter Dr. Darrell Scott.

Chance, who is a known supporter and friend of Barack Obama, did not take kindly to Trump’s tweet and posted a statement addressing the situation on Twitter.

The “No Problem” hitmaker admitted that he didn’t agree with what West had to say, but was merely trying to defend his friend. “Unfortunately, my attempt to support Kanye is being used to discredit my brothers and sisters,” he wrote.

“I’d never support anyone who has made a career out of hatred, racism and discrimination,” he added, before announcing that he will make up for his “poorly timed” comments with “immediate action and advocacy for those who need it most.”

Hot 97 radio presenter Ebro Darden, who has also come down heavy on West for his pro-Trump stance, said that he’d spoken to Chance and that the rapper “knows he made a mistake.”

West and Trump have yet to respond to Chance’s latest statement.
