Kanye West often faces criticism for his comments and political views. For example, when he was an avid supporter of Donald Trump, There was also the time that he said slavery was a choice. Now, he makes headlines for wearing a White Lives Matter t-shirt. Candace Owens owns a matching shirt. According to The Post Millennial,” West wore the shirt while speaking before showing his Season 9 fashion collection, where he also referenced his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, and discussed the recent fallout with Gap.” [tweet_embed]October 06, 2022[/tweet_embed] The Western Journal states, “West and conservative commentator Candace Owens were also seen in shirts that matched the hoodie, with an image of Pope John Paul II on the front.” The shirt instantly received vast amounts of backlash. Marc Lamont Hill tweeted, “Kanye West’s decision to wear a “White Lives Matter” shirt is disgusting, dangerous, and irresponsible. Some of you will rush to defend him. You should ask yourselves why….” Another tweet read, “sending a “WHITE LIVES MATTER” t-shirt down a runway in Paris is literal insanity, and no amount of gospel is getting that man through Heaven’s gate, I’m so sorry.” He was also labeled a white supremacist. Occupy Democrats tweeted, “BREAKING: Trump-supporting rapper Kanye West appears at an event for his fashion line in a t-shirt with the words “White Lives Matters” printed in big letters. The ADL recognizes the phrase as a popular slogan for white supremacists. RT IF YOU THINK KANYE IS A FOOL!” The Post Millennial points out several other instances when Kanye has received backlash. “‘When you hear about slavery for 400 years, that sounds like a choice,’ West said. ‘You were there for 400 years,’ he added, ‘And it’s all of you guys?’ This was around the same time West became a vocal supporter of then-President Donald Trump.” The article continues, “As a musician, African-American, a guy living out in Hollywood, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate. Then they told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say that out loud or my career would be over,’ he said in 2018 during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel.” White Lives Matter is a popular response to the Black Lives Matter movement. It’s labeled as a neo-Nazi slogan or racist. However, you can’t help but be proud of Kanye for always calling things how he sees them.
