Kanye West has been active on social media lately, making a buzz by wearing a black t-shirt with the words “WHITE LIVES MATTER” at the 2022 Paris Fashion Week. Kanye said his one t-shirt made all of Fashion Week and took all of the attention because “you’re all programmed sheep”, Kanye West added.
The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee said Kanye has been trying to take attention from everything else that was happening during Fashion Week, by going on and on about his t-shirt.
Charlamagne Tha God agreed with Yee and added that he knew Kanye would do this, adding, “Kanye West will do and say anything in his quest for White validation.” He continued that the way Kanye is trying to spin it like he is exposing Black Lives Matter as a scam is all for attention, and that’s what the White Lives Matter t-shirt was about, to bring attention to whatever he is trying to sell to people.
“Giving Black people your ass to kiss won’t make those White folks love you more, Kanye”, Charlamagne reminded Kanye West.
Diddy made a response to a post that Kanye shared on Instagram with a headline from The Daily Mail that read, “Kanye West Stands By White Lives Matter and Gets Diddy’s support”
Diddy addressed the White Lives Matter t-shirt during his recent interview on The Breakfast Club, saying, “Right now, all America has planned for us is poverty, incarceration, and death,” Diddy added. “So before I can get to any other lives matter – which all lives matter – but that Black Lives Matter, don’t play with it. Don’t wear the shirt. Don’t buy the shirt. Don’t play with the shirt. It’s not a joke.”
Diddy said the shirt weighed heavy on him and he needed some time to get over it. Diddy continued “Because right now, we’re the ones that are dying. There really ain’t no time for no other lives matter right now but the tribe. You have to be unapologetically Black and love your people and love your tribe first.”
But is there something Kanye still hasn’t addressed yet? Emerging designers have complained that their work was stolen without their knowledge after they met with Kanye and his staff.
