John Legend had a series of tweets presumably aimed at Kanye, but when he privately texted him, Kanye posted those screenshots!

This episode is brought to you by Secret Active. New Secret Active provides protection in the moments when it matters most.

It’s just one thing after another with the Kanye twitter drama!

Okay guys if you don’t already know, Kanye has come under some major fire for tweeting some things in support of President Donald Trump.

So while a lot of celebrities including Justin Bieber, BTS, The Weeknd, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Kendrick Lamar took that as a sign to unfollow him and leave it at that…

John Legend tweeted something that many assumed to be directed toward Kanye. He said in part QUOTE, “I imagine there’s some comfort in imagining a future without racism and projecting that onto the present. If history is erased, we don’t have to deal with its consequences. However…Far too many people don’t have the luxury of closing their eyes and ears. They feel it in their lives and can’t act like what they see and know doesn’t exist. I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future. But artists can’t be blind to the truth.”

After those series of tweets, we were not surprised to find out that John texted Kanye, and even less surprised when Kanye shared the conversation on twitter.

John’s text read QUOTE, “What you say really means something to your fans… So many people who love you feel so betrayed right now because they know the harm that Trump’s policies cause, especially to people of colour. Don’t let this be part of your legacy.”

While Kanye’s reply was, “I love you John and I appreciate your thoughts. You bringing up my fans or my legacy is a tactic based on fear used to manipulate my free thought.”

Anyone else find it fascinating when celebs tweet private text convos with other celebs? No? Just me?

Well when Kanye took it upon himself to tweet their conversation, Chrissy Teigen aka John’s wife got involved.

SHE tweeted QUOTE, “Everyone keeps asking me to comment on shit. Comment on psycho Tami Lasagna, whom I refuse to give the joy to, say something about RHOA, speak up about kanye. When it comes to people we know, we DO speak up. To THEM. not on Twitter. And sometimes, I guess it makes it to Twitter.”

You might be saying, “yep sounds like something Kanye would do” OR you might be saying “But Kanye! Why did you tweet out that private conversation?” and Kanye has your answer. He said QUOTE, “I tweeted the John text to show that there are people around me that disagree with me and voice their opinion. I respect everyone’s opinion but I stand my ground.”

Okay, okay so we all thought that’d be the end of it, but then John Legend pulled the funniest move by texting him back QUOTE, “And since you’re posting texts, let me add that I have a new single out” What a literal legend.

Of course, Kanye tweeted that screenshot as well and also tweeted QUOTE, “John Legend new single on line now”

And one final question on our minds was why John’s texts turned from blue earlier in their conversations to green. The answer was given to us by Chrissy who hilariously tweeted the last word QUOTE, “This is the most elaborate and complex google pixel phone ad I have ever seen.”

So PHEW it looks like there’s not really any bad blood, just healthy dialogue between friends. But what do you guys think? Did Kanye take it too far tweeting out these convos? Let us know in the comments! As always, I’m your host Ava Gordy, thanks so much for tuning in to Clevver and I’ll see you guys next time.

    Kanye is a joke! Just look who he is married to

    Can Social Services pay Kanye a wellness visit? He looks fat, sluggish and docile. He says nothing which makes sense…Even worse, Kim sees his ass sliding into nothingness (he ain't made a decent track since his mom passed sorry to say) and Kim still is clueless…thinking it's always about her!

    The conservative fans need to dump these celebrities. The racist here are blacks who are attacking a free thinking black man. No slavery mentality here. Hope conservative walk with their dollars.

    This is kind of disturbing. Yeah, nobody defends trump in any way, most of people don’t like him but we have to understand that EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN OPINION “RIGHT OR WRONG” DOES NOT MATTER

    We really have a problem in America just coz you’re black it doesn’t mean you automatically have to support a democrat. Am black straight from Chicago and I personally was voting for the republican Carly Fiorina, but she lost to Trump. The problem right there at the end of the election they were the only two that remained from each. And between Trump n Hilary I’d choose Trump more coz he’s a doer not a whining person who wants to play victim. So stop this dumb head of yours and for once think fairly just coz Kanye like Trump, doesn’t mean he should be hated and be labeled as crazy. Stop ✋ belittling people.

    What happened to democracy that democrats are always crying about? Kanye West supports his President? So what! You don't have to agree! Only respect! John Legend wants to support mediocre comedians holding a theatrical lookalike head of President Trump decapitated and obsessed late night show host with their constant rants about Mr Trump then that's his right! I'm sick of the hypocrisy and double standards uniformed people have against those that don't follow their same views! It's Unamerican and pathetic!

    John is so bitch whipped by his stupid wife he can't think for himself anymore and bts don't care about Trump or what's happening in america they have actual issues they're attacking to help people with depression and etc.

    You don't have to follow the moral compass of your friends, they aren't paying your bills, they don't own you, YOU own you.

    They couldn’t let someone famous possibly support the right in any capacity so they sent John legend in to reason with him. Much respect to Kanye for not backing down or being a coward and not being scared of the left who dominate pop culture and the media. There was nothing wrong with Kanye sharing the texts because it just shows how silly it is for others to play a part in your political beliefs or police what you share on your personal accounts if you are an adult, and if it is appropriate

    Do some of u people understand that minorities have been horribly affected by Trump?? You dumb asses folk aren't mad that he is speaking his truth hell it's his freedom of speech free thought etc. But Trump has disrespectful ways towards women, minorities, supports racism and is an alleged raptist. No all blacks aren't Democrats but for us who loved Kanye's music, this is kinda off. And he married a woman who feels her only talent is to be naked foh

    Honestly, it’s really his freedom of choice who he likes and what he wants to express as long as it doesn’t harm anybody.

    "artists can't be blind to the truth" is also nothing more than arrogantly assuming that truth belongs to them.

    Good for you k.west, not a fan of hip hop, but it seems to me that your one of the few rappers who wont be controlled by the progressive establishment. And when I say one of the few rappers, I mean literally your probably one of maybe…5

    It seems like everytime Trump is mentioned, people from every side has something to say. I just haven't seen #MAGA yet. People are having war battles over their opinions and it has increased soooo much since Trump stepped up. People who support him bash the ones that don't and vice versa. I am so glad I am not into politics now. It has gotten worst. Kanye has his opinion like everyone else and this proves how worst this America has come to. Crazy!!!

    Kanye & Trump are Dragon Fire – Black Conservative movement is growing

    Thank God kanye has the balls to not back down to his own truth whether anyone agrees or not. CNN and don lemon and his talking head guests are all freaking over kanye. At least he's not folding like a cheap suit like most of the celebrities do when threatened to be boycotted or black listed. Liberals and dems don't allow anyone to have a different opinion of they do they are called names racists etc and try to ruin their lives and careers. Kanye is standing up to that. At least for now
