Kanye West Salutes Parkland Survivor Emma Gonzalez: ‘My Hero’
Kanye West tweeting spree continued through much of the night on Saturday (April 28). Before he signed off, the rapper-producer showed his support for Emma González, the student activist and survivor of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., back in February.
Yeezy shared a photo of Emma González and wrote, “my hero Emma Gonzalez.” He then posted a photo of himself with his head shaved similar to González's and wrote “inspired by Emma.”
González appears to caught wind of West's tweets because and shared a photo of her own "hero": James Shaw Jr., who stopped the recent Tennessee Waffle House shooting by tackling and disarming the gunman. The brave young man also raised $165,000 for the victims' families.
West also tweeted out a link to Smokepurpp remix of "Lift Yourself," clarifying that it was not "a diss to J. Cole."
