Kanye West has been keeping very busy!

Just hours after rocking longer hair at Chrissy Teigen's baby shower, the 40-year-old rapper took to Twitter on Saturday to show off his new shaved 'do.

West first posted a photo of activist Emma Gonzalez, calling her, "my hero," then shared a selfie of his fresh cut. He captioned the selfie, "Inspired by Emma."

Though she did not respond directly to West, Gonzalez tweeted a photo of James Shaw Jr., the man who stopped a recent shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee, captioning it in the same style and spacing that West used when posting about her.

Gonzalez is an activist and survivor of the fatal shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February. She and four of the other prominent activists who've spoken up and fought for change since the tragedy, including putting March for Our Lives into action, were honored at the 2018 Time 100 Gala earlier this week.

West has been on quite the Twitter spree lately, including recently voicing his support for Donald Trump. Many of his famous friends and fans spoke out after West's proclamation, including John Legend, who begged his pal in a text on Thursday to let his support of Trump become part of his "legacy." Though West made that text public, the two were perfectly cordial at the baby shower for Legend and Teigen's second child just over 24 hours later.

"We got love. Agree to disagree," West captioned the smiling selfie of him and Legend, 39, which also showed off the longer hair that the rapper had been sporting.

This is certainly not the first time West has had a shaved head -- in fact, his lengthier blonde 'do was more of a change than his new look is.
