Kanye West Confuses Conservatives After Calling Gun Reform Activist His Hero

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West's love fest for Donald Trump drew in plenty of supporters from the political right. However, just as quickly, some conservatives turned on the G.O.O.D. Music leader.
Ye confused some of his new admirers when he posted a picture of gun reform advocate Emma Gonzalez with the caption "my hero." The Parkland shooting survivor has become a target for many pro-gun defenders.
Gonzalez was accused of admitting to bullying the Parkland shooter before he attacked Stoneman Douglas High School. However, that story has been proven to be inaccurate.
For her part, Gonzalez seemed to have responded to Kanye's shout out. She tweeted an image of the Waffle House shooting survivor James Shaw Jr. with the caption "my hero."
Right-wing Americans probably shouldn't have been surprised Kanye didn't jump all the way in with their beliefs. He previously tweeted, "I haven't done enough research on conservatives to call myself or be called one. I'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought.
