Kanye West is touted as one of the biggest names in the world of hip-hop, but he is also a true genius when it comes to business as well. His accolades simply speak for themselves.
As of late, Kanye West has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons once again. This is largely due to him wearing a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt during his Yeezy fashion show.
Not only that, he came under fire for his recent anti-Semitic remarks. He stated that he’ll go “Death Con 3 On Jewish People. He also called POTUS Joe Biden a r***** for not listening to Elon Musk.
According to TMZ, Jordan Kough, Executive Director of the National Down Syndrome Congress, stated that the r-word is hateful to all people with disabilities, and it’s very disappointing to see Kanye embrace it.
The NDSC said that the r-word strips humanity from people with disabilities and urges West to reconsider what he said. Executive Director Marlene Sallo says disability advocates appreciated when Kanye once said his bipolar disorder was his superpower, but now those same people are super upset to see Ye use an “outdated and hateful” word.
West is also being denounced by the National Down Syndrome Society. Elon Musk expressed concern over Kanye West’s recent antics as well. Ye has triggered a lot of people with his comments and he has no intention of stopping anytime soon. Keep reading Thirsty for more.
