In a tweet on Thursday, West wrote that while hate is a similar emotion to love, "hate is not the answer".

"Hey it's JL. I hope you'll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump", Legend said in the text.

United States musician Kanye West arrives to attend Givenchy's Fall/Winter 2014-2015 men's fashion show in Paris on January 17, 2014.

On Wednesday night's episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert turned his attention to Kanye West's recent posts on Twitter, in which he proclaimed his support for the USA president, calling Donald Trump "my brother" and he showed off his signed "Make America Great Again" hat. "And since you're posting texts, let me add that I have a new single out haha". He complained about struggling to lure big-name talent to his Inauguration and made a point of calling Roseanne Barr, a rare Trump supporter in Hollywood, for the recent success of her sitcom. While tweeting she was not going to comment, she explained why.

After West posted part two of the text exchange, she posted again with a humorous tone.

Even Legend's wifey Chrissy Teigen threw her hat into the fray letting Kim Kardashian know that if she needs to make a move, she's got her back and an inflatable bed. That probably clears some things up.

Teigen joked about West's vocal support of the president when she referred to Happy Days star Scott Baio, who is also a Trump fan. So things definitely became playful and amusing.

But his defenders are quick to denounce speculation on social media that he's being erratic or has mental health issues. If this was so planned, maybe he could have someone check his spelling and grammar.

West and Legend go way, way back. "I imagine there's some comfort in imagining a future without racism and projecting that onto the present", Legend began. And InfoWars host Alex Jones, a conspiracy theory promoter, invited West onto his show.

Though they disagree, Legend didn't mind West taking their texts public. Legend told Oprah in 2013 that while they "obviously have very different personalities ..."

She added: "I believe in free thinking, but I don't believe in free thinking if it's rooted in or at the expense of the oppressed". "So many people who love you feel so betrayed right now because they know the harm that Trump's policies cause, especially to people of color".

But less than an hour later Kanye followed up with another tweet, a request from his wife Kim Kardashian West, a critic of Trump, who wanted him to clarify that he does not agree with everything Trump does.
