There was the headline-making quote about how West claimed he’s sleep deprived and not bipolar. Or when he dropped F-bombs in the Oval Office during a 10-minute soliloquy. Or when the rapper talked about the “Superman cape” Trump gave him to help him do good. But one of the most tweeted-about moments came when the world found out Ye’s very simple iPhone passcode: 000000.
The 41-year-old musician whipped out his phone to show Trump a GIF (yes, that happened) and cameras captured him unlocking his cellphone. West didn’t even try to go the route of facial recognition — perhaps his MAGA hat hindered that option — choosing to input his passcode instead. If you want to get a peek into his conversations with Kim Kardashian or scope out unreleased music he may have stored on there, all you have to do is punch in “0” six times.

Unlike 0000, 000000 is a very good password https://t.co/mhUrtxKT6V
