Kanye West faced criticism this week due to the in-store presentation of his Yeezy Gap line.
Kanye West faced backlash this week following a viral photo of the in-store display of his Yeezy Gap collection. Fans immediately noted how the Balenciaga-engineered items weren’t placed on hangers or display tables but rather, in massive bags that customers had to dig through. Today, Kanye responded to the criticism during an interview with Fox News, where he fired back at accusations of mocking the homeless. Ye explained that he’s trying to “challenge traditional conventions” to create clothing that’s “more egalitarian,” according to Eric Shawn. “Look man, I’m an innovator,” Ye told Fox News. “And I’m not here to sit up and apologize about my ideas. That’s exactly what the media tries to do. Make us apologize for any idea that doesn’t fall under exactly the way they want us to think.”
