KANYE WEST WEARS WHITE LIVES MATTER SHIRT AT YEEZY SHOW
Kanye West premiered a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt during his Paris Fashion Week show. Yeezy models strutted the runway in the culture’s most hated shirt to date!
An outpouring of backlash hit the internet after images of West and Candance Owens began circulating. Both wore the chaotic display of propaganda and stood side by side at the show. In true Ye fashion, he challenged moral reproach with the following statement: “Everyone here knows that I am the leader … you can’t manage me. This is an unmanageable situation.”
Naomi Campbell modeled in the show, but did not wear the controversial T-shirt. Industry insiders, fans, and critics rebuked Kanye’s latest choice. Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson was one of many that sounded off on its ethics and deemed it violent.
His rebuttal landed him in an unfavorable position with one of his faves, Anna Wintour. After posting pictures of Gabriella and jesting over her choice of wear, onlookers accused Kanye of bullying. The incident resulted in a meeting between the two amongst Vogues elite.
The Culture has long stood by West despite the sordid measures he’s used to “make statments.” This latest round of controversy seems to have exhausted supporters’ grace for him. Conversations of disdain continue to place Kanye in contempt for his attack on Gabriella and Culture. Only time will tell if the old Kanye will put the new one out of its defamed glory.
