Boosie Calls Out Kanye West For Wearing ‘White Lives Matter’ Shirt At Yeezy Fashion Show
Kanye West has been trending on social media after making a clear statement at his surprise Yeezy fashion show on Monday, wearing a black sweatshirt with the slogan ‘White Lives Matter’ written across it.
Fashion models in the rapper’s show also wore clothing with the message written across it, a response to the Black Lives Matter movement that was founded in 2013 following the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.
Also posing with West, 43, was the right-wing commentator Candace Owens, who beamed while wearing a complementary version of the ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt.
Folks online have since been reacting to the shirt and Boosie Badazz has also shared his thoughts, calling out his colleague over it.
“@KanyeWest AFTER ALL WE BEEN THROUGH AS A RACE YOU PUT THIS DISRESPECTFUL SHIT ON!! U GIVES NO FUCKS ABOUT HOW BLACKS HAVE DIED N SUFFERED TO THE HANDS OF WHITE MAN 😔 N U SAY BUSH DON’T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE… REALLY NIGGA,” Boosie tweeted.
‘I am Ye, and everyone here knows that I am the leader,’ West, 43, said at the event while referencing his new legal name, adding: ‘You can’t manage me.’
It is not the first time that Ye has stoked controversy surrounding race, after saying in 2018 that he thought 400 years of slavery ‘was a choice.’ The Anti-Defamation League has previously called the phrase ‘White Lives Matter’ a hate slogan.
