Kanye West has been making headlines for the past several weeks for numerous controversial matters. Whether it’s the White Live Matter fiasco or his views on Jewish people, West can’t seem to keep himself out of the news.
Recently Kanye West’s name has popped up again in regard to Neo-Nazi merchandise that is reportedly being sold online. The Kanye West-inspired merch is being sold by various retailers using Neo-Nazi design along with his Ye24 campaign logo.
Several marketplaces are selling t-shirts with West’s 2024 presidential logo made inside a pair of Swastikas. There are t-shirts also featuring the Swastikas inside the Star of David.
Anti-hate groups the Anti-Defamation League and the Combat Antisemitism Movement have spoken out against the sale of the merchandise.
“Disturbed to see sites selling swastika-themed merch in support of Ye’s presidential bid. Some of the symbols appear to have originated among white supremacist trolls on 4chan in Nov & have since been incorporated into merch by online sellers, including print-on-demand platforms,” the ADL tweeted.
The Anti-Defamation League followed it up with another tweet as follows:
“It doesn’t matter whether the sellers of this merch are trying to make a buck or to spread hatred. Reputable platforms have a responsibility to put a stop to it. Kudos to those who already have.”
While the t-shirt exhibits the same views of Kanye West, we don’t know if he has anything to do with this merch popping up in various marketplaces. Stay tuned to Thirsty for News as we keep you updated on this story as it develops.
