Turning Point USA communications director Candace Owens said rapper Kanye West is the designer of the "Blexit" shirts encouraging black people to leave the Democratic Party,.
The shirts, which are a play off "Brexit" in the United Kingdom, were introduced Saturday at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.
“Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West," Owens said, according to Page Six.
West later denied being the designer.
West was not in attendance at the Saturday event. He did visit the White House earlier this month, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, during which he gave an on-camera rant on issues including race and policies and embraced President Trump.

West isn't shutting the door on supporting left-leaning candidates. He recently donated about $73,000 to liberal Chicago mayoral candidate Amara Enyia.
Trump addressed the attendees of the TPUSA summit on Friday at the White House, suggested that West “may be the most powerful man in all of politics."
The designs of the shirts include the words "Blexit" or "We Free" and come in different colors. They are available on a new Blexit.com website.
