Boosie Badazz went off on Kanye West on Twitter after he wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt to his Paris fashion show during Fashion Week.
“@kanyewest AFTER ALL WE BEEN THROUGH AS A RACE YOU PUT THIS DISRESPECTFUL SH-T ON!! U GIVES NO FUCKS ABOUT HOW BLACKS HAVE DIED N SUFFERED TO THE HANDS OF THE WHITE MAN N U SAY BUSH DON’T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE…REALLY N-GGA” Boosie tweeted.
Ye has turned his back on several issues affecting the Black community over recent years, including when he shocked the world by saying slavery was a choice.
“When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” he said on TMZ in 2019. “You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all. It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”
The interviewee, Van Lathan, challenged his views. “While you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you’ve earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives. We have to deal with the marginalization that’s come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice. Frankly, I’m disappointed, I’m appalled, and brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something to me, that’s not real.”
Ye later cried on air as he apologized for his remarks.
