Polemiche sono scoppiate durante la settimana della moda di Parigi. Il 3 ottobre, si diceva che ci fosse una sfilata di moda a sorpresa con un’altra svolta inaspettata da accompagnare. Il sempre controverso e in espansione Kanye “Ye” West ha ospitato una passerella segreta che presentava il suo nuovo abbigliamento, secondo The Guardian. La sua linea di moda includeva un design da far alzare le sopracciglia, che era una t-shirt con le parole “White Lives Matter” stampate su di essa.
The "Gold Digger" rapper clapped back at Karefa-Johnson by posting photos of her profile on his Instagram. In a series of five to six posts, he made fun of her fashion and claimed that the editor was "not a fashion person," and therefore shouldn't be listened to. Now, celebrities are coming to the editor's defense, including Gigi Hadid.
Gigi Hadid doesn't hold back while defending a friend
Kanye "Ye" West is no stranger to dissing people on Instagram. In August, following his split from Kim Kardashian, a source told People that comedian Pete Davidson was going to trauma therapy due to the rapper's social media posts about him. After Ye dissed Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, people — public figures and average Joes — are coming to her defense.
"You wish u had a percentage of her intellect," model Gigi Hadid commented under one of the rapper's Instagram posts. Hadid, who is friends with Karefa-Johnson, mentioned that the editor was just trying to educate him on his controversial apparel, saying that he shouldn't diss someone who was invited to the fashion show and was just giving their opinion. "You're a bully and a joke," she added.
The editor and the model aren't the only public figures who have had something to say about the rapper's clothing line. Jaden Smith tweeted "Black Lives Matter" and "True Leaders Lead," and even Boosie BadAzz had some harsh words for Ye, per Billboard. Fans chimed in as well as one person tweeted, "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."
Ye has since taken to social media again to let his followers know that he and Karefa-Johnson met for dinner and "apologized to each other for the way we made each other feel."
