On Tuesday night, Kanye wrote a series of tweets separating himself from Candace and her Blexit (Black exit from the Democratic plantation) movement. He also clarified his positions on prison reform, immigration, and gun control.
"My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!"
On Wednesday, in a post titled "808 and Heartbreak" on her blog, Candace wrote:
"Let me first say, to those that have relished in my hurt and pain:
If knowing that I bleed and that I hurt brings you comfort and celebration— then there is no question that you won last night.
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."
She apologized to Kanye and to President Trump:
"I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT. This is a lie that seems to have made its way around the world; a lie I would like to again correct for the record. Kanye was completely right to feel used in that regard and as I have done personally, I would like to publicly apologize to him for any undue stress or pain the effort to correct that rumor has caused him, his business relationships, or his family. He simply never designed them.
"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 bare full responsibility."

Rapper Talib Kweli was among Candace's critics who applauded Kanye for returning to the fold.
He wrote on Instagram:
"Me and @kanyewest started an album together last January. That same month Candace Owens trolled me on twitter and her followers called me all types of niggers and monkeys for months. Hey Ye it’s probably time to revisit this one... lyrics are timely AF. Welcome back."
