After causing controversy by wearing a "White Lives Matter" shirt, the rapper doubled down and addressed the "Vogue" editor who had attacked his Yeezy show.
Kanye West used Instagram to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement and to criticise Gabriella Karefa-Johnson of Vogue for her comments about the rapper's appearance at the Yeezy presentation during Paris Fashion Week wearing a sweatshirt with the words "White Lives Matter" printed on the back. Kanye, 45, responded to detractors by labelling the Black Lives Matter movement a "scam."
The "Runaway" rapper didn't say anything about the contentious sweatshirt during the performance, but it looked like he was responding to those who were startled and horrified that he would print the words on a shirt. "Black Lives Matter is widely acknowledged to be a fraud. It is now over. On Tuesday, October 4, he wrote, "You're welcome.
On her Instagram Story, Gabriella discussed the line and Kanye's use of the term in particular. The editor called it "very reckless and dangerous" to display models wearing the shirts with the message on them. Before calling him out further, she described the shirts as "absolute brutality" as well. She penned, "There is no art here." "I believe Kanye would say there was art, revolution, and everything else in that t-shirt if you asked him. There is none.
Following Gabriella's criticism of him, Kanye posted a screenshot of her Instagram. "Broke the computer." when the code is unreadable by the computer This is a robot, he wrote in the caption. Additionally, he posted a picture of her that appeared to be from a Fashion Week event and seemed to criticise her choice of clothing. This person is not about fashion. Ask Trevor Noah," he said in one piece, making reference to his March criticism of the host of The Daily Show. In another picture, he focused on Gabriella's shoes and made a dig at Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. He wrote, "I KNOOOOOOW ANNA HAAATES THESE BOOTS."
Since Ye's posts, Gabriella has not responded to him in public. Kanye posted screenshots of a text message a pal sent him telling him not to pursue her. "I agree that you shouldn't disparage the author. You could genuinely engage in a meaningful discussion about the tee, the author claimed. Kanye’s two most recent posts, also appeared to reference the dispute, including one that said, “When I said war, I meant war.”
The My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy actress stood with right-wing activist Candace Owens at the event while wearing identical shirts with the phrase "White Lives Matter" on the back. According to a close friend of Kim Kardashian, Kanye's ex-wife, the SKIMS founder was "utterly appalled" to see her ex spending time with the Daily Wire podcaster, as exclusively told to HollywoodLife by the source. The insider stated, "She thinks he is making a terrible choice and that the message is extremely hurtful to so many."
