Kanye West Inspired to Shave His Head by High School Shooting Survivor Emma Gonzalez
Recently, it seems like Kanye West has been looking at the man in the mirror and asking him to make that change, mentally and now physically.
On Saturday night (April 28), the rapper posted a picture of Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor and activist Emma Gonzalez along with the caption, "my hero Emma Gonzalez." Several minutes later, he posted a photo of himself with a newly-shaven head. "Inspired by Emma," he captioned his selfie.
Gonzalez has made a name for herself as an advocate for stricter gun laws after the tragedy that befell her school in February 2018 when a gunman opened fire killing 17 people. She has since co-founded the organization Never Again MSD, a gun control advocacy group and also helped organize the March for Our Lives rally in March, which West attended.
After catching wind of West's tweet, Gonzalez appeared to respond with a photo of James Shaw Jr., the man who disarmed the gunman during the recent Tennessee Waffle House shooting and helped raise money for the victims. "My hero," she captioned the pic.
Kanye's Twitter continues to dominate the news feed. Most recently, he approved of a Smokepurpp remix of his recently-released track "Lift Yourself." On Saturday, he revealed what may be the album cover and title for his upcoming LP.
