Kanye West has reacted to the heat he received over the “White Lives Matter” T-shirt he and his Yeezy models rocked at his fashion show.
On Monday, October 3, Kanye showcased his Season 9 collection in Paris.
He rocked a White Lives Matter T-shirt at the event alongside Black conservatonist influencer Candace Owens and other models.
This angered Black people and they called him out for trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement.
Reacting, Kanye blasted those criticising him and told them that Black Lives Matter movement is a scam.
Ye wrote on Instagram, “Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam now it’s over. You’re welcome.”
He also went after a contributing editor for Vogue named Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, who called his White Lives Matter shirt “dangerous” and “irresponsible”.
Kanye posted a photo of Gabriella and made fun of her wardrobe, writing: “This is not a fashion person. You speak on Ye. Ima speak on you. Ask Trevor Noah.”
Kanye then posted a photo of just Gabriella’s boots and wrote: “I KNOOOOOOW ANNA [Wintour] HAAAATES THESE BOOTS.”
