Candace Owens has released a statement after Kanye West called her out on Twitter regarding the “Blexit” designs.
Page Six reported that Owens, 29, claimed West, 41, had created the logos and the colours for the T-shirt line, which was designed to encourage black people to exit — or “blexit” — the Democratic Party.
However, the rapper was quick to disagree with her comments on social media.
Owens has since shared a lengthy statement, titled “808s and Heartbreak”, in which she apologized for suggesting West had any involvement in the designing of the shirts.
She wrote, “If I had to imagine what it would feel like to have a bullet pierce my heart, it would be exactly like the moment I learned Kanye told the world he felt I had used him.
“I wouldn’t wish the way I felt last night upon my worst enemy.”
Owens continued: “I never once said that Kanye designed the T-shirts for Blexit… I would like to publicly apologize to him for any undue stress or pain the effort to correct that rumour has caused him, his business relationships, or his family. He simply never designed them.
“I am a leader, and I would like to lead in this moment by stating that any and all confusion relating to this topic is therefore my fault, entirely.”
She also apologized to Donald Trump, after many assumed West was no longer a supporter of the president after the rapper said he was “distancing” himself from politics.
Owens insisted, “I would also like to publicly apologize to President Trump, as I know that Kanye’s tweets were rapidly misinterpreted as a shot to this administration.
“His tweets were aimed at me and me only, rightfully, for my personal failings. I bear full responsibility.”
West has hit headlines recently for voicing his support for Trump, with him often being pictured in a “Make America Great Again” hat, as well as a White House visit to meet with the president earlier this month.
