Kanye West has an amazing ability to draw all attention to himself in an instant. He simply needs to make one post to become the topic of discussion for the entire week. Kanye recently posted ‘White Lives Matter,’ which garnered a lot of backlash, also from Jason Lee.

Kanye West will have to recruit a new head of media and partnerships for Yeezy now that Jason Lee has officially resigned. Lee declared his departure from Kanye West after the debut of the “White Lives Matter” t-shirt during the YZY SZN 9 presentation. The founder of Hollywood Unlocked informed PageSix that he will focus on his talk show.

“Very humble and thankful to Ye for the opportunity to work with him but that part of our relationship has come to an end,” he wrote. “And I don’t support this.” In a separate post, he denounced Kanye’s t-shirt and his relationship with Candace Owens. Though he stated that he supports free speech, he went on to say that Kanye is “gaslighting black people and empowering white supremacy.”

“Not sure if he has any friends left to tell him but this is utterly disappointing,” he wrote.

I’m going to exercise free speech and say, nobody black has ever said that white lives don’t matter. But when black people do this it just screams the need for white validation.

Not to mention, adding Candace Owens to this photo is beyond reprehensible. I understand he believes in her right to free speech but her speech is typically embedded in self hate, a determination to promote white supremacy, and she lacks integrity.

If Kanye keeps doing this, he might end up alone someday. Let’s see if he ever goes back on his word. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
