Kanye West assured Twitter users Wednesday, April 25 that he is no longer in the sunken place, but fans and celebs alike aren’t buying it.

After going on a Twitter spree saying that he is all about love and has no political affiliations, he said, “I’m all the way out the sunken place. And I’m not scared anymore. I’m not scared of the media. I’m not scared of the past and I’m optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love, not fear.”

However, some of the rapper’s other tweets — including those about his support for Trump and Black Lives Matter critic Candace Owens — do little to prove that West’s mind hasn’t been taken over by a white mind, as the film “Get Out” explained of the sunken place.

In response, fans and celebrities have tweeted their two cents on the matter.

“Kanye actually admitted to being in the sunken place. Lol Kanye is not okay,” someone tweeted. “Y’all need to stop praising the stuff he does and says. He hasn’t been himself for a very long time. Let’s stop trying to pass off everything he does as genius.”

“I think you may still be in the sunken place, Kanye!” blogger Perez Hilton tweeted.

Chance the Rapper tweeted a kind of defense of Ye saying the fellow Chicago native hasn’t changed, adding in a separate post, “Black people don’t have to be Democrats.”

“Kanye is in the sunken place,” tweeted “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin.

Former West collaborator, John Legend seemed to post an indirect response to Ye, writing, “I imagine there’s some comfort in imagining a future without racism and projecting that onto the present. Thinking if we just deny the truth, it doesn’t exist. If history is erased, we don’t have to deal with its consequences. However…Far too many people don’t have the luxury of closing their eyes and ears. They feel it in their lives and can’t act like what they see and know doesn’t exist.”
