Kanye West’s campaign slogan, “White Lives Matter,” has repeatedly been in the news. Fans must have observed that the rapper destroys anyone who challenges his political agenda. In his most recent outburst, Ye didn’t hold back when it came to putting both Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid on blast for the second time.
The rapper and the two models have been at odds ever since they publicly stated their support for Vogue editor Gabriella-Karefa Johnson, who called the rapper’s infamous “White Lives Matter” shirt and Paris Fashion Week display “irresponsible” and “very disrespectful.” On Thursday, Ye took things up a notch when he publicly shamed Gigi and Hailey once again. He began in an Instagram post on Thursday,
“‘THEEYY’ don’t want undeniable beautiful Black women to be put on their rightful throne.They want corny ass Gigi Hadid and nose job Hailey Baldloose [Bieber] to rally behind an obvious Corey Gamble level nonfashion industry plant.”
Corey is, of course, Ye’s ex-mom-in-law Kris Jenner’s 66-year-old longterm boyfriend. The rapper then went on to claim that the public and media also “want to shame Lizzo anytime she loses weight” and “don’t want to support Beyoncé” in addition to the aforementioned points. He also gave a shoutout to fellow rappers Future and Travis Scott for “recognizing their queen.”
The Vogue editor’s close friends, Gigi and Hailey instantly expressed their support in the public sphere. The 25-year-old creator of Rhode Beauty posted her stirring message to her Instagram story. Hailey wrote, “My respect for you runs deep my friend!” She also said, “To know is to adore you and to work with you is an honor… the most kind. the most talented. the most fun. the most chic.”
Gigi shared similar sentiments in her post. Kanye then responded to both women by sharing screenshots of their coverage, dragging Hailey’s husband Justin Bieber, who is 28, in to the debacle. We’ll have to wait and see how the two supermodels react to Ye’s campaign. Keep checking Thirsty for more updates.
