Kanye West Salutes Parkland Survivor Emma Gonzalez: 'My Hero'

Kanye West Salutes Parkland Survivor Emma Gonzalez: 'My Hero'”

He also posted a selfie, writing, "Inspired by Emma". And in the midst of all that, he found time to throw in a tribute to Parkland shooting survivor and activist Emma González.

But instead of feeling flattered or excited by the mega star's admiration and attention, she seemingly snubbed Kim Kardashian's husband by tweeting a response about who her own hero is. On Saturday evening, during yet another stream-of-consciousness Twitter rampage, he tweeted a photo of González and added: "my hero Emma Gonzalez". The Parkland student has been urging Donald Trump and lawmakers for stricter gun control laws in the wake of the deadly February shooting at her Parkland, Fla. high school.

The young advocate for gun control, saluted James Shaw Jr, the man who made headlines for stopping a Waffle House shooter and raising $165,000 (£119,738) for the victims.

Following his lengthy Twitter rant about Donald Trump, Kanye West got a bit of shade while trying to pivot and honor one of the key figures behind the recent #MarchForOurLives movement, Emma Gonzalez. We are both dragon energy. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.
