Kanye West shaves head in honor of Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez calling her his ‘hero’

Kanye West has shaved his head in tribute to school shooting survivor and gun rights activist Emma Gonzalez on Saturday.

The rapper showed off his new look on Twitter after posting a photo of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, who has become a prominent gun rights activist in the wake of the shooting at the school on February 14 that killed 17 people.

He posted a picture of Gonzalez with the caption: ‘my hero Emma Gonzalez.’

He followed it up with a picture of himself with a closely shaved head, captioned: ‘Inspired by Emma.’ 

And Emma seemingly responded as she posted: ‘my hero James Shaw Jr.’

James Shaw Jr. wrestled an AR-15 rifle at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee on April 22, preventing possible further deaths.

The gunman killed four people.

Photos of the rapper on Friday show him with longer, bleached hair, as he attended Chrissy Teigen’s baby shower.

He also took a selfie with John Legend after the friends put aside their differences in the wake of the rapper’s tweets about President Donald Trump. 

West has sparked controversy with his comments about the president, in which he referred to Mr Trump as his ‘brother’ and showed off his signed Make America Great Again baseball cap.

West has also indicated that his new album cover will feature a photograph of the plastic surgeon who operated on his mother Donda.

In screen grabs of a text conversation he shared on Twitter, he wrote to a friend: ‘This is my album cover. This is plastic surgeon Jan Adams. The person who performed my moms final surgery.

‘Do you have any title ideas?’

He also included a photo of the doctor who operated on Donda before her sudden death in November 2007.

He added: ‘I want to forgive and stop hating.’

In January 2008, the Los Angeles coroner determined that Donda died of heart disease while suffering from ‘multiple post-operative factors’, a day after she had breast reduction, a tummy tuck and liposuction procedures.
