13 July 2020

Chance The Rapper has been catching some heat online recently for supporting Kanye West’s controversial presidential run.

This morning chance took to twitter to voice his opposition to Joe Biden’s presidential run, and questioned why the masses are against the alternative of voting for with Kanye west.

Chance the rapper isn’t the first to support the G.O.O.D. Music founder’s presidential run, joining the likes of Kim Kardashian, YG, Elon Musk and ironically the current president Trump.

“Are u more pro Biden or anti ye and why? I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna “get trump out” but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better??”

The rapper went on to face heavy backlash from Twitter users with many saying his comments were irrational and dangerous, giving Donald Trump an advantage to win another election with citizens wasting their votes on Kanye and weakening Biden’s voting demographic.

“chance the rapper really used his platform to let everyone know he may be voting for kanye and that he’s confused about people voting Biden. Kanye hasn’t talked about his policy, plans or hasn’t been in any kind of public platform to debate his opponents. can’t make this shit up”

“The most irresponsible part about Chance’s dumb ass rant is that Kanye is literally not eligible to campaign for presidency. So he’s promoting the idea of simply not voting for Biden. Ignorance mixed with Influence is a terrible combination.”

With the online consensus being that Chance is using is reach irresponsibly and is causing more harm than good, hopefully the rapper use his force more effectively to get Trump out of office, rather than putting his friend in.
