UPDATE 10/31/2018 4:07pm ET: Candace Owens has issued a formal apology to Kanye West in a post published to her blog.

"I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT," she states. "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 am a leader, and I would like to lead in this moment by stating that any and all confusion relating to this topic is therefore my fault, entirely. 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."

Following the launch of BLEXIT, Kanye West has spoken out against being affiliated with the organization founded by conservative activist Candance Owens in a series of tweets. According to West, he is not responsible for the political movement's merchandise designs, but he did introduce Owens to the person who created the logo. "I never wanted any association with Blexit," he wrote. "I have nothing to do with it."

West also claims that he will be steering away from politics and "completely focusing on being creative." Owens previously released a statement to clarify West's involvement with her project, claiming that "the press is trying to use Kanye’s name to create drama and further divisiveness which is WRONG" and credited him for helping her design the "X" for BLEXIT.

A few hours prior to these recent statements, West also tweeted about the causes and beliefs that he fully supports.

In other news, Travis Scott recently endorsed Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke. Get all the details right here.
