Twitter is reacting to Kanye West revealing at a concert in San Jose, California on Thursday that he would have voted for Donald Trump in this year’s presidential election. See reaction tweets below.

West told concertgoers, “I told ya’ll I didn’t vote right? But if I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump.” That prompted boos from the audience. The rapper then began singing his 2008 hit, “Heartless,” before launching into another rant, “I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and ya’ll sang it at the top of your lungs. That doesn’t mean you’re a Trump supporter, that just means you okay with a celebrity having their own opinion or that someone else is okay to have their own opinion.”

As Gossip Cop reported, West, who announced he would be running for president in 2020, met with Hillary Clinton last year with Kim Kardashian at a fundraiser for the nominee. In September, Kardashian revealed that she was unsure who to vote for, but later confirmed she would be supporting Clinton. Her husband, however, apparently has different political beliefs, which resulted in an enormous Twitter reaction.

A user named @Soulful_Adonis3 wrote, “That ‘Kanye being Kanye’ excuse ain’t flying with me anymore. It was funny at first but I really believe he has a problem.” Another user said, “I’m giggling at how ya’ll real life hurt by Kanye’s political opinion right now. It’s Kanye West, c’mon now lol.” Meanwhile, @AleahWalker tweeted, “Kanye just said he would’ve voted for Donald Trump… Kanye for president 2020 is canceled.” And a user with the handle, @younggpimpinn expressed, “This whole Kanye news broke my heart. I’m extremely upset, and disappointed. It’s a sad day.”

“Kanye did something else stupid?,” mocked @CamsTweetin. A person with the account @Tigress1984 wrote, “I’ve been telling ya’ll Kanye is real life bipolar. More evidence pops up everyday.” Another named @kayrewest tweeted, “What was Kanye’s point in telling us he would have voted for Trump? It don’t matter bro, the election over. Damage been done.” “This is why I don’t like Kanye West… like at all. Like Trump he is a flip flopper,” expressed @TaylorBrione. And @scarletkmeyer felt, “Kanye is rich, famous, related to reality TV world, does whatever he wants despite the consequences, so yeah of course he’d vote for Trump.” Gossip Cop will continue to update as Twitter continues to react to West revealing he would have voted for Trump.
