Kanye West Appears at Yeezy Season 9 Fashion Show with "White Lives Matter" Shirt, Social Media Reacts

Hey Alexa, play Liberal Meltdown by Kanye West.

Rapper Kayne West is making news today, but not because he is on a rant about in ex-in-laws that no one cares about. Instead the Yeezy founder shocked liberal media Monday during a staged a surprise fashion show in Paris, showcasing his Season 9 collection.

Before the models took to the catwalk, West appeared, while wearing a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt emblazoned with the Pope’s face on the front and the same bedazzled flip-flops he sported last week.

While referencing his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s 2016 Paris robbery, his former manager Scooter Braun, the struggles he faced entering the fashion industry, his recent fallout with Gap and much more.

“I am Ye, and everyone here knows that I am the leader,” he said at one point, referencing his new legal name. “You can’t manage me.”

Ye

Before the show, Ye teased some of the famous models expected to make appearances: Kardashian, 41, ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk and current flame Candice Swanepoel as well as other big names like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Angelina Jolie, Lauryn Hill, Naomi Campbell, Emily Ratajkowski, Gisele Bündchen, Bella Hadid and Amelia Gray Hamlin.

However, it appears only Shayk, Campbell and Hamlin made appearances, with the Russian model watching from the side as the other two walked the runway.

Some of the models in the show wore the same shirt emblazoned with “White Lives Matter” on the back as well, while triggered Libs on social media reacted.

“Sending a “WHITE LIVES MATTER” t-shirt down a runway in Paris is literal insanity and no amount of gospel is getting that man through Heaven’s gate, I’m so sorry,” one person tweeted.

On the other side of the spectrum, West’s supporters showed their support including Candace Owens, who shared a picture of herself and West donning the same shirt.
