Kanye West Rips BLM as a ‘Scam,’ Debuts ‘White Lives Matter’ Fashion

'Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam... '

(Headline USA) Rapper Kanye West slammed Black Lives Matter as a “scam” on Tuesday after facing criticism for featuring “White Lives Matter” T-shirts in his brand’s fashion show in Paris.

West came under fire after wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt to the event and featuring similar shirts in Yeezy’s runway line-up. One guest, musician Jaden Smith, even walked out of the event, according to reports. 

“I Had To Dip Lol,” Smith, the son of actor Will Smith, tweeted after.

Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill also slammed West, calling the shirt “disgusting.”

West, however, defended the slogan, arguing in an Instagram post that the slogan is meaningless.

“Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam,” he said. “Now its over You’re welcome [syc].”

West also posed with conservative pundit Candace Owens for a photo that showed them wearing matching “White Lives Matter” shirts. She hit back against the criticism and venom that was spat on herself and West.

“If Black lives matter, then some of these things that we have been talking about on this show, things I’ve been talking about throughout my entire political career would be getting attention,” Owens said. “Not the t-shirts…but these actual statistics that matter.”

The Black Lives Matter organization has come under fire for abusing charitable funds. Its co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, has admitted to using a $6 million mansion paid for by the organization for personal events, including her son’s birthday party.

Cullors denied that she used the mansion as her personal residence, but videos she posted during the pandemic show her in the home repeatedly. When asked about the timeline, Cullors revealed she sought refuge at the property because she had been receiving death threats.

“I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea,” she said.

BLM tried to kill the story about Cullors’s mansion before it was reported, according to internal memos. One strategy on how to deal with the story suggested they should refer to the home as an “influencer house” where artists can congregate.
