KANYE WEST or “YE” Shocks BLACK LIVES MATTER and the World by Appearing IN A “WHITE LIVES MATTER” T-SHIRT at His Yeezy Fashion Show; he Was Joined by Candace Owens Who Recently Called His Ex-wife Kim Kardashian a “Prostitute”

Kanye West made a 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 conservative commentator Candace Owens, who beamed while wearing a complementary version of the ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt, and Kanye’s daughter North West, nine, was even roped into the event.

The move is another in West’s distancing himself from the mainstream of black politics.

Famously in 2005, West made international news when he appeared on a telethon for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and declared: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

Since then however, Kanye has aligned himself with right-wing figures such as Owens,  as well as President Donald Trump, regularly sporting a Make America Great Again baseball hat in public.

During a May 2018 interview regarding his support of Trump, West said: “Racism isn’t  the deal-breaker for me. If that was the case, I wouldn’t live in America.”
