The rapper Kanye West is still in the news! Is it time to revolt ?
Recently, the web is flooded with controversial comments from the artist Kanye West, who does not seem to have finished surprising us. Decryption.
Incoherent comments, even surprising …
We know it well, Kanye West likes to have the eyes on him, and for good reason, he arrived recently at Paris Fashion Week wearing a T-shirt “White Lives Matter”, a slogan often used by the far right and American neo-Nazis to the Black Lives Matter movement, which defends the civil rights of black people.
A behavior that no longer amuses the fashion world and more. From the biggest stars to simple Internet users, all have condemned the attitude of the rapper who took this response of white supremacists for his parade.
The ex of Kim Kardashian justified himself to the microphone of Mouloud Achour by stating :
“I’ve seen white people wearing t-shirts that say: Black Lives Matter. Like they were doing me a real favor by wearing a t-shirt that reminded me that my life matters, like I didn’t already know that. So I thought I’d return the favor. That way, white people know that their lives matter too.”
An explanation that satisfies few. To liven things up, Kanye West goes back to one of the most serious events of the 21st century, the death of George Floyd.
Against the grain.
The rapper multiplies the polemical statements on current events and American politics and returns this time on the case George Floyd. It is in an interview with the podcast Drink Champs, that the rapper says that this 46-year-old African-American died because of his consumption of opiates and not by Derek Chauvin, the police officer convicted in 2021 for manslaughter.
A first complaint was filed against the interpreter of Donda by George Floyd’s ex-girlfriend, who is asking him for 250 million dollars in damages for defamation. Years earlier, however, Kanye West had set up a fund to pay for Gianna Floyd’s education and had demonstrated with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Also on the same show, which has since been removed from YouTube and the Revolt TV platform, the man who now goes by the name Ye allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks, while continuing his tirade in tweets now deleted. And that’s just it…
YE, an ambitious man …
After all these twists and turns, the sentence is irrevocable, Kanye West has been banned from Instagram and Twiter for violating the policies of the social network. Restrictions that do not make him lose the north. He would like, in fact, to buy Parler, the social network launched by Donald Trump in August 2018, following …the closure of the latter’s account.
“In a world where conservative views are considered controversial, we need to make sure we have the right to express ourselves freely,” said the producer and stylist YE, in a statement released by Parler.
To close the ball, we learn that luxury brand Balenciaga has just severed its relationship with Ye. “Balenciaga no longer has a relationship or future projects related to this artist,” the Kering Group said.” An announcement that signs the end of the collaboration between Balenciaga and Yeezy Gap products, announced in January 2022.
What else Kanye West reserves us …?
