Is Kim Kardashian Responsible for Kanye West's Black Lives Matter Support?

Kanye West has been a vocal fan of Donald Trump, but now his support of Black Lives Matter has some believing that Kim Kardashian may have finally gotten through to him.

One source even told us Kardashian — who has become a vocal campaigner for criminal justice and prison reform — was the catalyst for him to act. West sprang into action last week, creating a college fund for George Floyd’s daughter, Gianna, and donating $2 million to BLM organizations. He also marched with protesters in his hometown of Chicago.

Kardashian’s rep told us it’s “not true” that she prompted West to act. “Kanye fully made the decision to donate and peacefully protest in Chicago on his own accord,” the rep said.

While West’s rep didn’t comment, another source close to the rapper — whose music and lyrics such as the “Yeezus” track “New Slaves” often touch on race and equality — told us he’s always been fully engaged.

“He was pained by the video of the murder of George Floyd and fully supports the peaceful protesting happening around the world,” the source said, adding, “He has always been a fierce advocate for black lives, racial equality and human rights. People confuse his support of the president to mean he supports his politics and ideology … it’s never about politics.”

We don’t know what it’s about for Kanye West. Honestly, we’re not even sure if we care at this point.
