Kanye West's celebratory tweets about leading the polls in Kentucky were premature. On Tuesday (October 13), a noticeably thrilled Ye took to Twitter to share what turned out to be invalid early election results.
"GET THE WEST WING READY!!!" he tweeted alongside a video of himself pointing to the results. "This is how I felt when I saw the Kentucky pole result."
Ye - who managed to get on the ballot in Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont - should've done his due diligence. According to LEX18, who originally reported the numbers, it was simply a test.
The Lexington-based news station cleared up the confusion with a tweet shortly after Kanye's victory lap, writing, "Someone discovered a cached web link that we used during June's primary election to post Associated Press election results. The old link was still populating current AP data and showed test results, which is part of the preparation the AP does in advance of elections.
"The results shown were not valid. They were simply part of a test. We regret the discovery of the cached web link and have removed the data from that page. We apologize for any confusion."
