Kanye West is all over the internet for all the wrong reasons. From bullying celebrities to recently donning a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt at the Paris Fashion Show, Ye seems to have raged a war against many Hollywood celebrities. On the other hand, there are some who are showing their outright support for Kanye’s recent “White Lives Matter Stunt”.
Who Is Supporting “White Lives Matter”?
Kanye West was first criticized by Vogue’s contributing editor, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, for wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt at the Paris Fashion Show”. She wrote: ‘Here comes the bulls**t. I’m fuming… Collecting my thoughts… DM me for my working thesis. Indefensible behavior,’ she shared with her 196k followers.
In retaliation, Kanye mocked Gabriella in three derogatory Instagram posts. Gigi Hadid, however, came to her rescue, and called Ye, a “bully and a joke”. As for the “White Lives Matter”, Ye defended himself by posting the t-shirt in one of his now-deleted Instagram posts and wrote, “Here’s my latest response when people ask me why I made a tee that says white lives matter… THEY DO!”
Well, there are still some celebrities out there who are showing their outright support for Kanye’s recent stunt that has disappointed many blacks. Here is a list of those who are supporting Kanye’s “White Lives Matter”.
Ray West (Ye’s Dad)
Ye’s dad, Ray West is the most recent person to support his son. Kanye just posted an Instagram post wherein he added a screenshot of his conversation with the 73-year-old man. The two can be seen agreeing to “A black man declaring the obvious”.
Ye captioned it: FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 45 YEARS I MADE MY SUPER EDUCATED FORMER BLACK PANTHER FATHER PROUD And by the way dad There’s an NPC trying to pick on me What should I do.”
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers player, Antonio Brown, became one of the first supporters of Kanye West’s “White Lives Matter” t-shirt. The 34-year-old football wide receiver posted an old clip from Aug., wherein Kanye and Antonio can be seen exchanging music ideas. He captioned it: “All Lives Matter 🔔 🛎 #CallGod #Boomin,” he said, adding, “#Donda #Always.”
Shockingly, one of Kanye’s old rivals, Drake also came forward to support the “Donda” rapper by liking one of his posts wherein he clapped back at Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Beiber for supporting Gabriella’s criticism.
Kanye even posted a separate post thanking Drake for his support and wrote: ‘EVERYONE KNOWS ME AND DRAKE HAVE HAD A RIVALRY IN THE PAST. IT REALLY WARMED MY HEART TO SEE DRAKE LIKE ONE OF MY POSTS WE STILL NEED THE DONDA TEAM TO PLAY NOCTA ALL DRAKE MUSIC WILL BE PLAYED AT DONDA GAMES MOVING FORWARD.”

Candace Owens, the right-winger, who wore a similar “White Lives Matter” t-shirt alongside Kanye at the Paris Fashion Show, is showing her outright support for the “Donda” rapper. The conservative influencer also came forward to comment on one of Kanye’s posts wherein he attacked the Kardashians for keeping him away from his children.
American rapper Sean Love Combs, who goes by the stage name Diddy, came to Ye’s rescue while everyone was slamming Ye for his controversial, “White Lives Matter” t-shirt. The 52-year-old rapper may not have endorsed the t-shirt, but he definitely asked the public to not cancel him and urged everyone to understand his actions. He called Ye a “super, super, super free thinker”.
Yesterday, Ye attacked the Kardashians following Khloe’s comment wherein she sided with her sister and asked Ye to stop tearing down her family. The rapper called them “lairs” and “kidnappers”. While the Kardashians don’t seem to bother, Ye surely has a small yet valuable list of supporters. Why do you think he wore a “White Lives Matter” tee?
