Sharon Osbourne was asked by a reporter what her thoughts were on Kanye West wearing a White Lives matter Tee at a recent fashion show. She replied,
“I don’t understand why white lives don’t matter,” she said. “I don’t understand it. Listen, it’s not my thing, it’s not my culture. I don’t understand any of it. Everybody matters, don’t they?”
Osbourne agreed with Kanye West, who called Black Lives Matter a scam in response to the social media firestorm he created after photos of him and Candace Owens wearing the matching white lives tees went viral. Osbourne said she would like her $900k BLM donation back.

When Osbourne was asked about the backlash against West and whether or not he should be canceled, Osbourne encouraged people to ignore him and his views if they didn’t “like him” according to Breitbart.
“Don’t go to his social media. Don’t listen to his music,” she said. “Leave the guy alone. Let him do what he does, and if you don’t like him, do that.
“Leave him alone.”
What⁉️ BLM a scam‼️‼️
What gave it away? The stealing of $10 million from donors? The misappropriation of $90million 2020?
Biggest shock is that some folks are only just waking up to this‼️ https://t.co/vGbzV5BEJI

Media mogul Sean Diddy Combs also came out to support West, saying, “My boy is a super, super, super free thinker.”
“My boy is a super, super, super free thinker,” Diddy said of Kanye West. “And a lot of times, what he means is, like, misconstrued, you know what I’m saying?” https://t.co/g3Zo7ArJhx

Tucker Carlson interviewed Kanye West about several issues. When asked why West chose to wear the tee, he prefaced his response by saying that “as an artist,” he doesn’t “have to give an explanation, but as a leader,” he does, so he explained, “The answer to why I wrote White Lives Matter on a t-shirt is because they do. It’s the obvious thing.”
