Kanye West appears to have lost 9 million Twitter followers in just one day.
And it could have something to do with his supportive tweets about President Donald Trump .
The decline in his following was noticed by one fan, who tweeted screenshots to back up his theory.
"Kanye losing 9 million followers because of the Trump tweet," the fan wrote alongside the images.
The first shows Kanye’s following on the social media site standing at an impressive 27.8 million.
It’s then followed up by one of Kanye’s tweets.
The rapper shared a snap of his ‘Make America Great Again’ cap – the slogan used by Trump throughout his Presidential campaign – and wrote: "my MAGA hat is signed".
He followed it up with a string of fire emojis.
The final screenshot shows Kanye’s following at a rapidly-depleted 18.6 million.
That’s not Kanye’s first tweet about his old pal Trump today.
The star, who recently welcomed his third child with wife Kim Kardashian , called Trump his "brother" and said that they both have "dragon energy".
He tweeted: "You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."
But it seems Kim wasn’t too pleased with the tweet, and immediately contacted Kanye, telling him to set the record straight.
He later added: "my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself."
Trump was pleased with the tweet though. He shared it with his own followers and wrote: "Thank you Kanye, very cool!"
And Kanye was chuffed with the response, sharing a shot of Trump’s tweet with his followers.
Where will it end?
Kanye and Trump go way back.
In 2016, the day after Trump was named President-elect, Kanye turned up at Trump Tower for a meeting, and the duo posed up for pictures in the lobby afterwards.
Kanye has been dropping massive hints that he’s going to run for the White House himself in 2024.
Just the other day, the dad-of-three shared a snap of five identical posters hanging up on a wall outside what looks to be a store or office building.
The pink posters feature a black and white image of his face, with the slogan "Keep America Great" above him.
And at the bottom, there’s a hashtag that reads "#Kanye2024"
Kanye shared the picture on Twitter alongside a thinking face emoji, but deleted it within a few minutes.
The slogan is similar to Trump’s, which was "Make America Great Again".
It’s not known if the posters were actually of Kanye’s design, or if they were posted by a fan, with Kanye simply sharing the image with his followers.
It seems he changed his mind just minutes later as he quickly deleted the post.
But today, he started it all up again, when he revealed the first thing he’d do not if, but WHEN, he’s voted into the White House.
He’s going to change the name of the President’s private jet to reflect his own nickname.
He said: "when we become president we have to change the name of the plane from Air Force one to Yeezy force one"
Yeezy is Kanye’s nickname and the name of his clothing line, and clearly, he thinks it’s a darn good name for a Presidential aircraft as well.
Mirror Online has contacted Kanye’s representatives for comment.
