Kanye West is widely known as one of the most controversial celebrities of this century and his problematic tendencies keep progressing. 45-year-old rapper Kayne West, who is officially known as Ye, has found himself in some deep water for his behavior lately.
In October, during Paris Fashion Week, Ye was photographed wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt. Then days later, he turned to Twitter to make some very concerning and antisemitic tweets stating “ death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE”, which was later removed from the platform. He was then locked out of Twitter temporarily. Days later he took to social media again to talk about his daughter with Kim Kardashian, Chicago, and how the Kardashian family kidnapped his daughter and refused to let him see her at her 4th birthday party, allegations that he made earlier this year.
After this comment, many celebrities took to social media to condemn his comments and have spoken out against his behavior saying what he said is hateful. Following the drama, brands and companies that have associated with Ye have severed ties with the rapper. JP Moran Chase, Balenciaga, Vogue, and some companies that once carried Yeezy’s have removed them from their stores, even Ye’s agency, CAA, has cut ties with him. But this won’t be the end, Ye is known for “Speaking his mind” even when it will cause trouble.
