On Thursday night, Kanye West made a startling confession to the crowd during his Saint Pablo tour stop in San Jose, California. In one of multiple stoppages during the show, Kanye said the he admired many aspects of Donald Trump's presidential campaign before admitting, "If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted on Trump.”
Many at the show booed Kanye after the statement and fans online were equally upset. As some users are trying to make sense of the statements, which also included a tangent about race, others are condemning Kanye West. Another segment of the internet is abandoning their Yeezy apparel. See how the internet reacted to Kanye West's speech below.

Excited my "Kanye West is the Future of the Political Left" essay is going up today. Now to just take a big sip of coffee and read the news— Jeremy D. Larson (@jeremydlarson) November 18, 2016
Kanye in 2005: Bush doesn't care about black people.— Shalima (@shalimazandria) November 18, 2016
Kanye in 2016: Lol. Neither do I.
I can see why Kanye likes Trump campaign. Even with all the craziness, it had a smoother rollout than Life of Pablo.— Hannibal Buress (@hannibalburess) November 18, 2016
Kanye needs a stern "See, man this is why people don't fuck with you dawg" talking to from Jay. That's his only hope now.— Larry Beyince (@DragonflyJonez) November 18, 2016
I've not given up on Kanye quite yet. I think he's immensely talented. But I am at a loss re: what will change his mind besides a friend.— deray mckesson (@deray) November 18, 2016
