Images from a meeting Kanye West attended at The Fader music offices—where he played new songs from his unreleased album—have people on Twitter confused and angry.

Why?


West's mismatched fashion choices. The artist and designer showed up wearing a familiar red hat emblazoned with President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign slogan:

"Make America Great Again"

But that alone would not shock anyone. West vocally supports Trump. What caught people off guard involved the rest of West's ensemble.

The rapper chose to pair his MAGA hat with a shirt supporting former NFL player and current Nike spokesperson Colin Kaepernick. Trump referred to Kaepernick as a "son of a bitch" because of his protest over racial inequality and the killing of unarmed Black people by law enforcement.

Twitter had a lot of thoughts on the matter.

But apparently West had an explanation.

Although it failed to impress most people.

West proves himself an expert once again in gaining media attention at all the right times. His latest album comes out Saturday.

At one point, Fox News—which was covering the event—decided to cut away, amid stifled laughter from the hosts.
