Y’all really over here forgetting who is sending out this tweet about true character. 🧐— Greg (@genericpieces) April 19, 2018
Does Kanye follow that philosophy? Not in public he doesn't.....👎— Ma'rie Haarala (@lsurebel96) April 19, 2018
West was also accused of plagiarizing or not citing his sources.
You can also judge the character of a man who plagiarizes someone else’s quote. The quote you completely butchered and are trying to steal is “You can easily judge the character of a man by the way he treats those who can do nothing for him” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe— Dan Riggs (@Riggs) April 19, 2018
Didn’t Mother Teresa say something almost exactly like this lol— Erin Bovenzi (@iznir3) April 19, 2018

Many people just thought it was lame.
I also enjoy fortune cookie. I like the crunch— Rostant Kanick (@RostimusPrime) April 19, 2018
This is a telling tweet. Kanye’s world = people who can do things for him + people who can’t. Paul Ryan would be proud.— Zachary Klinedinst (@Klinedzr88) April 19, 2018
But there are also plenty of believers.
