Kanye West was accused of 'bullying' Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson after she trolled the rapper for choosing to wear a "White Lives Matter" shirt.
On Monday, the rapper provoked outrage when he appeared at his Yeezy design presentation, which was part of Paris Fashion Week, wearing a shirt with the message "White Lives Matter" scrawled across the back.
Following the event, Karefa-Johnson chastised West for his "indefensible behavior," and a few days later, he posted a series of posts about the Vogue contributing editor, including one in which he criticized her outfit choices and labeled her as "not a fashion person."
In response to the backlash, Hadid rushed to Instagram to support Karefa-Johnson: “You wish u had a percentage of her intellect. You have no idea haha…. If there’s actually a point to any of your s### she might be the only person that could save u,” she wrote. “As if the ‘honor’ of being invited to your show should keep someone from giving their opinion ..? Lol. You’re a bully and a joke.”
“WE APOLOGIZED TO EACH OTHER FOR THE WAY WE MADE EACH OTHER FEEL WE ACTUALLY GOT ALONG AND HAVE BOTH EXPERIENCED THE FIGHT FOR ACCEPTANCE IN A WORLD THAT’S NOT OUR OWN. SHE DISAGREED I DISAGREED WE DISAGREED,” he said.
Ye hasn't yet revealed why he decided to wear the shirt to the Yeezy event, despite the fact that White Lives Matter is a racist reaction to the Black Lives Matter movement.
