On the heels of his spectacular Coachella performance, Canadian R&B singer Daniel Caesar recently came under fire for his Twitter likes and comments in support of right wing advocate Candace Owens and by association, Kanye West. Daniel liked tweets implying that the left is solely responsible for mind control tactics and the oppression of black people.
Amid a great deal of backlash, Caesar issued a statement further explaining his views and the origins of his perspective. Some have referred to his statement as an apology or backtracking, but his first sentence appears to state that he wants to ‘clarify’ his remarks. See his statement below.
