Kanye West doubles down on controversial fashion show appearance

Kanye “Ye” West is facing growing backlash for his choice to create a “White Lives Matter” sweatshirt. Vogue editor-in-chief Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, who attended Ye’s fashion show in Paris, shared her dismay at the new Yeezy collection. “I guess I understood what he was trying to do – he thought it was Duchampian. It wasn’t,” Karefa-Johnson wrote after the show (per Billboard), adding, “The t-shirts this man designed, produced, and shared with the world are pure violence…He doesn’t. there is no excuse, there is no art here. Following Karefa-Johnson’s remarks, Ye took to Instagram and attempted to stalk the fashion editor. “He’s not a fashion person. You talk about Ye Ima talk about you, ask Trevor Noah,” Ye wrote in a since-deleted post, alongside a photo of Karefa-Johnson.

However, the rapper’s biggest statement of conviction came when he called the Black Lives Matter organization “a scam.” “Everyone knows Black Lives Matter was a scam now it’s over, you’re welcome,” Ye wrote on his Instagram Story (via Page Six). And while Ye didn’t elaborate on his thoughts on the social justice group, he made it clear that he has no intention of apologizing to the BLM movement. Following his social media attack on Karefa-Johnson, Ye shared a screenshot of a text he received from designer Mowalola Ogunlesi – who suggested he apologize for his comments. The rapper has since shared with his followers that he met with the Vogue editor and the two “apologised.”
