Kanye West just returned to Instagram with a huge romantic gesture

And we don't know how to feel about it

We all know that Kanye West has a strange relationship with social media, renowned for his infamous Twitter rants and strange public musings.

There was the time he asked Mark Zuckerberg for one billion dollars, the moment he got emotional over fonts (yes, fonts) and we’re still trying to forget his controversial rant about how expensive abortions are, accusing ‘Gold diggin’ bitches’ of getting pregnant on purpose.

But since he deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts last May, there has been radio silence…until now.

Yes, as of this week, Kanye is back on social media – and being Kanye, he went overboard.
