CELEBRITY Controversial

Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, wore a black t-shirt emblazoned with the phrase “White Lives Matter” on the back in stark white print while debuting his Yeezy Season 9 collection during a surprise Paris Fashion Week show on October 3. The choice was obviously controversial and many people online expressed pain that the rapper-turned-designer was so carelessly (and without explanation) touting the racist phrase, which was widely adopted by neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups as well as Trump supporters in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, as Billboard reminds us. 

Ye has had varying thoughts on racism in America over his career, and he's miles away now from his comment in 2005 that George Bush "doesn't care about Black people," what with his 2018 appearance on TMZ Live when he called slavery a "choice," and wearing a MAGA hat to visit Donald Trump. Joining Ye in a matching "White Lives Matter" shirt at his show was controversial conservative figure Candace Owens.
