Kanye thanks Candace Owens for having his back in feud with ex-Kim Kardashian

The rapper formerly known as Kanye West who now goes by the name Ye took a moment to express his gratitude to conservative commentator Candace Owens.

West thanked Owens on social media after she defended him in his public feud with ex-wife Kim Kardashian. The former couple sparked debate after West shared a post complaining about how their 8-year-old daughter North was too young to be on social media, an opinion Kardashian did not agree with.

“SINCE THIS IS MY FIRST DIVORCE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO ABOUT MY DAUGHTER BEING PUT ON TIK TOK AGAINST MY WILL ?” he wrote in an Instagram post on Friday that appeared to be taken down later.

“Kanye’s constant need for attacking me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create.” Kardashian shot back. “As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision — because it brings her happiness.”

The public argument ignited debate on social media over young children posting on TikTok and the wider discourse on parental rights, especially in divorces.

Owens came to West’s defense in a tweet saying that “Kim is wrong on this one” and that “there is no 8 year old in the world that needs social media.”


The rapper later took a screenshot of Owens’ tweets and posted it to Instagram where he thanked her for speaking out. That post also appeared to be taken down but Twitter users shared screenshots of it on that platform.

“THANK YOU CANDACE FOR BEING THE ONLY NOTEWORTHY PERSON TO SPEAK ON THIS ISSUE,” he had reportedly written in all caps.

THERE’S A LOT OF CELEBRITIES SCARED TO SAY SOMETHING IN PUBLIC BUT THEY’LL TEXT ME IN PRIVATE AND SAY THEIR ON MY SIDE,” he continued.

“I WILL NO LONGER PUT MY HAND THROUGH A BLENDER TO HUG MY CHILDREN MY MOTHER TOOK ME TO CHICAGO WHEN I WAS 3 AND TOLD MY DAD IF HE CAME TO CHICAGO HE WOULD NEVER SEE ME AGAIN SO I BOUGHT THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR I DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE DAD’S CAN STILL BE HEROES,” the 44-year-old artist added.
