A few social media users then took to Twitter in disbelief and shock. Speaking of the album, ‘Donda’ was finally released on Sunday, August 29 and not without it's share of controversies.

Did Kanye West invite Donald Trump for 'Donda' event?
Kanye was widely slammed on social media as soon as viewers saw DaBaby and Manson on stage during the listening event. However, if sources are to be believed, the Grammy-winning artist had all the intentions to get publicity even if it courted controversies. And, that was probably the reason he was looking forward to share the stage with Trump. A source told Radar Online, “Kanye reached out to Donald Trump’s team to get the former President to make an appearance alongside him and join DaBaby, Marilyn Manson, and Kim Kardashian in Chicago” adding, “Kanye is not afraid of controversy. Why else would he invite DaBaby after he spewed homophobic remarks and Marilyn Manson who has been accused by several women of sexual assault?” asked one insider.
The gossip bird further spilled the tea saying, “Getting a former President to help sell his new album would have been huge for Kanye, who was a big supporter of Donald Trump. As far as Kanye is concerned, all press is good press.” A friend told the publication that Kanye had even wore the red hat of ‘Make America Great Again’ and visited the Oval Office. “This is a man who ran for President after everyone told him not to do it. This is a man who wore a red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and visited the Oval Office. Kanye loves to press buttons. Expect a lot more press stunts over the next few days. I wouldn’t put it past him to turn up with Bill Cosby.” Kanye had first shown support to Trump in his Presidential race in 2020 and later had run for the Office himself.
‘Weirdest, craziest pop culture moment’
Social media users took to Twitter as soon as they got to know about Kanye’s intentions of getting Trump for ‘Donda’ event. One user stated, “I really wish Trump came on stage wit Kanye for the Donda event.” Whereas, another one stated, “Don’t act like Kanye having trump on stage with him wouldn’t have been one of the weirdest and craziest pop culture moments of all time that would’ve been surreal like something out of the f**king twilight zone. Kanye, Dababy, Marilyn Manson, and Donald f**king trump? Fever dream.”
The next one tweeted, “So Kanye reached to Trump to join him on stage during his #Donda listening event in Chicago.” And, another concluded, “Serious question: why y’all didn’t cancel Kanye when he was supporting Trump? But tried to cancel DaBaby for saying what he said on stage. Y’all fake.”
