A guest post by Blue State Conservative.
Kanye West, now legally known as Ye, caused a predictable and tiring outroar over activity at his Paris fashion show this past weekend. It’s all 100% on point and triggering typical leftists who cannot handle opposing viewpoints.
It all began after the black artist showed up to his event wearing a shirt emblazoned with the phrase “White Lives Matter.” Alongside him was outspoken conservative firebrand Candace Owens, also black, wearing a shirt with the same message.

Fox reported that the shirt was just a small sampling of drummed-up controversy by the one-of-a-kind rapper. In addition to triggering woke losers, he also addressed the Kardashian family and past relationship with Kim, as well as his recent separation from the clothing brand Gap. Needless to say, Kanye knows how to get free publicity.
West, 45, appeared Monday at the fashion show in Paris. The rapper debuted his Season 9 collection. Conservative commentator Candace Owens shared a photo of herself wearing the same t-shirt standing next to West in his “White Lives Matter” shirt.
Ahead of the show, he gave a speech in which he referenced the 2016 robbery of estranged wife Kim Kardashian, the fallout with Gap following the launch of his collaboration with the brand, his struggles in the fashion industry, and more, according to Page Six.
Twitter offered some hilarious takes on the fake outrage, although to some, the outrage is likely quite real since leftists are children trapped in adult bodies.

After the rote response, in which some accused him of violence for wearing a tee-shirt, Kanye doubled down on his position and made sure to remind folks that the organization Black Lives Matter is a “scam.”
“Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam,” he wrote in an Instagram post after the show. “Now [it’s] over. You’re welcome.”
One particular black wokester took extreme issue with the shirt and highlights the absurdity of ever-more-deranged takes by people so lost to their own lies. Vogue’s contributing editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson wrote that Kanye’s choice of apparel amounted to “pure violence.” She wrote in a lengthy social media post the following hyperbole:
I guess I get what he tried to do—he thought it was [Duchampian]. It wasn’t,” she said in appalling hyperbole to a social media account. “It didn’t land, and it was deeply offensive, violent, and dangerous.”
Karefa-Johnson continued, writing that “the danger is that, this very premise, the idea that white supremacy is in danger of extinction [is] what justifies mass incarceration, murder en masse, indeed even the advent of slavery.
After Candace Owens hilariously accused her of being a ‘Diversity and Equity” hire and several other commenters blasted the horrible take, Karefa-Johnson doubled down, saying:

“It’s become clear that some viewers think my previous post containing my working, evolving thoughts on Kanye’s show was some sort of distorted justification for the incredibly irresponsible and dangerous act of sending ‘W*** Lives Matter’ T-shirts down a runway.
Please understand: it wasn’t. The T-shirts this man conceived, produced, and shared with the world are pure violence. There is no excuse, there is no art here. I’m sorry I failed to make that clear—I thought I did. I do think if you asked Kanye, he’d say there was art, and revolution, and all of the things in that t-shirt. There isn’t.”
