Social media has been left scratching their collective heads following Kanye West's Twitter rant Monday night in which he shared a screenshot of Google search results for actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Lawrence. The series of tweets, most of which have since been deleted, followed his first campaign rally, held in South Carolina over the weekend, during which he made a number of controversial claims on topics ranging from abolitionist Harriet Tubman to abortion.
Kanye is droppin bombs on his twitter, very interesting stuff! He posted Jennifer Lawrence & Halle Berry in Google, said the movie Get Out was about him... a link to MJ’s “Black or White” video with McCauley Culkin in it... #Qanon #Kanye #theGreatAwakening pic.twitter.com/x8wBlqE6BY— Christa Z.

Along with the screenshots evoking Berry and Lawrence, West made a number of other confusing, and in some cases, concerning posts. In one tweet, he claimed that "NBC locked up Bill Cosby." In another, he alleged that the popular film Get Out is about him. That tweet was proceeded by one in which he wrote, "Kriss don't play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children Ya'll tried to lock me up." He also claimed that his wife "was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday."
While many of his tweets left his followers confused, the ones referencing Berry and Lawrence drew particular attention on social media. Shortly after they were shared, Twitter users flocked to the platform to react, many attempting to discern the meaning behind them. Keep scrolling to see how people are reacting to West’s confusing tweets.

Kanye is showing the difference ..you look up Halle Berry and gossip pops up.. you look up Jennifer Lawrence and it’s just her biography and achievements. It’s fucked up and we know why pic.twitter.com/zHg1BXC8YG— ✭Oh, Was that a Nerve?✭ (@King_Yunn) July 21, 2020
Ok so deep down Kanye might have a point and imma let him finish, but why is no one fact checking this. When you google Halle Berry she gets an overview too, top stories don’t come until later one pic.twitter.com/fTOyHhCd2d— Silent Flow 🍒💜 (@prplmnn) July 21, 2020
