The rapper, 43, sparked outrage when he debuted the clothing at his Paris Fashion Week show on Monday before doubling down on his claims and dismissing Black Lives Matter – the social movement created to protest social and racial injustices aimed at his own community.
In a series of posts on Tuesday, Ye lashed out Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, a stylist and global Vogue contributing editor, who had branded his merchandise ‘indefensible’, ‘dangerous’ and ‘violent.’
In his posts, West insulted Karefa-Johnson’s style and scoffed ‘this is not a fashion person’, before going on to share the ominous text ‘this means war’.
He also shared a text exchange with a person called Mowalola – presumably fashion designer Mowalola Ogunlesi who Ye picked to head up Yeezy Gap a few years ago – in which he has been urged ‘not to insult’ the writer.
The exchange prompted Hadid, 27, to comment that West didn’t have ‘a percentage of her intellect’, and said there was ‘no point to his s**t’.
Hadid wrote: ‘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**t she might be the only person that could save u. 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.’
