Here is everything you need to know.
Kanye West’s fake White Lives Matter t-shirts are for sale
Kanye West has become a hot topic on social media after he wore a White Lives Matter t-shirt. He wore the shirt earlier this week at Yeezy’s Season 9 presentation at Paris Fashion Week.
However, West, who now goes by the name Ye, has yet to officially release the controversial jerseys. However, duplicate versions of the shirts are showing up on sales sites.
Various listings on eBay have cited the long sleeve shirts under the title as ‘Lives Matter-Kanye West-Candace Owens’ or ‘Kanye Style All Lives Matter’.
Also, while the listings certainly haven’t included the word ‘White’ in their description, it is carved in bold letters into the actual clothing.
A source close to the 45-year-old rapper revealed that West has the final word on the sale of the shirt. However, as of now, they’re apparently not too keen on selling the actual design.
Meanwhile, fake t-shirts sell for around $20-$25 on eBay. They’re clearly cheaper than official Donda hitmaker merch, which costs upwards of $100.
Additionally, West’s original jersey featured an image of Pope John Paul II on the front. But the fake ones only have the line ‘White Lives Matter’ inscribed on them.
Kanye West and Khloe Kardashian fight online
Kanye West has taken to social media to respond to the criticism he faces over White Lives Matter t-shirts, particularly from celebrities like Gigi Hadid.
He wrote: ‘So why did everyone feel so free to attack me about my shirt but Candace Owens was the only public figure to say it was wrong for the Kardashians to stop me from seeing my daughter?’
However, Khloe Kardashian was not impressed when West publicly criticized Kim Kardashian’s parenting method.
She responded by commenting: ‘Yes, I love you. I don’t want to do this on social media but YOU keep bringing it here. You are the father of my nieces and nephews and I am trying to be respectful but please STOP bringing Kimberly down and using our family when you want to misdirect.
The 38-year-old reality star further claimed that West knows ‘exactly’ where his four ‘children are at all times’.
