This Conspiracy Theory About Kanye West Might Explain His Strange Trump Obsession

This Conspiracy Theory About Kanye West Might Explain His Strange Trump Obsession

Kanye West has been shocking and horrifying everyone with his support of Donald Trump, his extremely messed up statements about slavery and racism in general, and his absolutely wild tweets. No one is exactly sure what’s happening over in Calabasas, but it’s seemingly not good.

Twitter user and @Snowcone96 has a theory. If you get through the whole thing, you’ll either be completely on board or horrified by the lengths fans are going to in order to excuse Kanye’s behavior.

He starts by introducing us to artist Tremaine Emory who @Snowcone96 seems to believe is one of the few people in on an elaborate performance art piece by West:

Then @Snowcone96 shares tweets form Kanye about certain specific artists, suggesting they’re alluding to the current “project” that Kanye is doing.

Especially this piece by Joseph Beuys, where he locked himself in a room with a coyote (someone please call animal protection service on the past). But in Kanye’s piece (that @Snowcone96 is imagining) the coyote is racism?

Kanye has also referenced Andy Kaufman, who is known as a subversive comedian whose work often went to such uncomfortable places he’d be booed off stage. Kaufman was really more of a performance artist than a comedian. Lord knows, a lot of what Kanye has been doing is extremely uncomfortable, but there’s no proof any of it is a performance. Unless you believe @Snowcone96:

There are also references in Kanye’s tweets to “the prestige,” which is also the name of a film. In the film, the prestige is pulling off a magic trick so incredible no one can figure out how you do it. Both Kanye and Emory have been making references to the movie, it seems, and Emory has also mentioned Kaufman.

It’s all ART. ART!! But @Snowcone96 has no idea why or what the ultimate purpose is, nor does he seem to have a clue as to why Kanye would be sowing so much hurt and discord to promote some art idea.

Also, his ideas are ripped off from Reddit:

That’s okay. Kanye’s new album would have to be absolutely transcendent to cut through this mess, and in my opinion, Kaufman is overrated.

Kanye West Put John Legend's Texts On Twitter And Chrissy Teigen Has Had It

If you have been living under a rock, you may not know that Kanye West has been firing up Twitter with incessant tweets about how much he apparently loves President Donald Trump. Kanye calls this “free thinking.”

And Donald Trump loves it, of course:

It got so bad that Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, called to have a little intervention, which he promptly reported to his followers:

And she tried to defend him herself, to mixed results:

But he has only doubled-down, advertising his signed MAGA hat:

A lot of celebrities and friends of Kanye don’t know what to say, but seem to want him to stop:

Two close friends of Kim and Kanye are John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. John Legend wrote a measured reflection on the situation on his Twitter, but he didn’t mention Kanye by name:

In private, Legend was apparently reaching out to his old friend. But it didn’t stay private for long. Kanye screenshot their alleged text exchange and put it on Twitter:

In his message, Legend writes that he hopes Kanye reconsiders aligning himself with Trump, because he has enormous influence with his fans. He wants him to know how Trump’s policies have particularly hurt people of color, and that it’s a betrayal to them to back this administration. Kanye dismisses this as “manipulation.”

Teigen also wrote on Twitter that she is getting messages to intervene with Kanye, and wants to make it clear that they have been trying:

Yes, sometimes it does end up on Twitter, which Legend decided to take advantage of:

This seems like a painful situation, but everyone appears to be trying to make the best of it:

Chrissy Teigen Promised Kim Kardashian An 'Air Mattress' After Kanye West Tweeted This

Chrissy Teigen Promised Kim Kardashian An ‘Air Mattress’ After Kanye West Tweeted This

It seems like every time Chrissy Teigen tweets, it’s a bit of an event.

Whether she’s duking it out with vegans, explaining why she didn’t take her husband’s last name, or pointing out that annoyed radio show hosts look like thumbs, Teigen always delivers.

And Teigen doesn’t need to just sassily respond to trolls or former reality TV stars that managed to get elected President of the United States either, she also has some pretty hilarious exchanges with other celebrities.

Like when she read this tweet from a series of messages Kanye West had for aspiring creatives.

Something that Kim Kardashian made a joke about, you know, seeing as she is his wife and all.

Teigen, ever the good samaritan, offered up her air mattress just in case Kim was part of the “creative cleaning out process.” As if Kim would ever sleep on one of those things, anyway. Remember, this is the same woman who was once making $ 1 million a minute selling emojis.

Kim furthered the joke asking the hypothetical question on everyone’s minds in this fantasy: oh, what of the children?!

Do the husbands needs to get involved? Will another musician get what West meant by the tweet?

Teigen, seeing a fellow mother’s pain, offered her up an elegant guest house solution.

While fun and definitely just the thing to lift one’s spirits up, I hear you can feel everything when the other person moves when you’re trying to sleep. Less than ideal if you need a solid 8.

Before the joke went too far, Kim wanted to let the world know that she was, indeed, just joking around with her pal.

In case you’re wondering which tweets Kim’s referring to, Kanye recently sent out a series of tweets with some advice for hopeful creatives out there.

Although Kanye’s known for a colorful personality and to be a bit eccentric, his pointers were legitimately helpful.

He told artists to value their ideas and also prioritize their work over distractions or other contractual obligations, i.e. “money jobs” and things of that nature.

Then came the fateful tweet that was an extended thought of the “distraction” one.

And he urged creative minds to focus on the love in their work and not the fear.

Now even though his tweets were freely available, it didn’t stop some people from thinking (or joking) that it was a cryptic way of him calling it quits with Kim K.

While some were a bit more vocal of their understanding that it was a joke.

Yes, even millionaire celebrities joke with their friends on Twitter, who also happen to be millionaire celebrities, just like you and your friends. Minus the millionaire part. And the fame and celebrity status. And the friends.
