The panel on "The Five" discussed how rapper Kanye West's recent praise of President Donald Trump and black conservative activist Candace Owens is "turning Hollywood... upside down."

"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," West wrote on Twitter in response to backlash over his initial praise.

West said he does not agree with the president on several issues but that ideological differences should not always stand in the way of affinity for another person.

"Thank you, Kanye, very cool," Trump later tweeted in response.

Greg Gutfeld said West's recent tweets are a sign that some people are "leaving the intellectual conformity" many are pigeonholed into.

He said that in the recent past, "people are supposed to stay in [their] boxes" or an "online mob will come after you."

Juan Williams said the entire discussion over West and Trump's relationship is "superficial conversation" and that the rapper has a history of insulting other Republicans.

After Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on Louisiana and Mississippi, West claimed that President Bush "doesn't care about black people" due to the lethargic recovery response in underprivileged neighborhoods.

Jesse Watters said the conversation is not about taking political sides on individual issues, but instead "celebrating people for being independent thinkers."
