Kanye West was seen wearing a “White lives matter” shirt at his Yeezy fashion show in Paris on Monday.
During a surprise Yeezy fashion show in Paris on Monday, Kanye West wore a shirt with the words “White lives matter” in bold letters on the back.
“I am Ye, and everyone here knows that I am the leader,” he said to the crowd. “You can’t manage me.”
The rapper who once criticized Harriet Tubman saying she “never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other White people,” boasted his shirt along Candace Owens, who earlier this year claimed Disney was “pedophiles” for supporting gay rights.
The term “White lives matter” wasn’t an original term thought up to bring awareness to the struggles of White people. It was a term made up to mock those who say “Black lives matter”, just like the term “blue lives matter”.
Kanye West continues to add shock value
Additionally, Kanye made his Black models wear the shirt as well.
In response, one Twitter user wrote, “Kanye west making Black models wear “ white lives matter” shirts is a culmination of his anti blackness and his immersion in white supremacy ideologies and methods. Disgusting.”
Kanye loves to remain at the center of public attention, notably making threatening posts about his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s then boyfriend Pete Davidson.
It got so bad, that Kim had to make public pleas to get a grown adult who is the father of her four children to stop harassing her and threatening her boyfriend.
It seems Kanye West will continue to push the envelope to see just how low he can stoop to remain in the public eye, so Monday’s publicity stunt surely does not surprise most people.
