Another said: “Kanye west making Black models wear ‘white lives matter’ shirts is a culmination of his anti blackness and his immersion in white supremacy ideologies and methods. Disgusting.”
One more added: “You lot are shocked at Kanye wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt like the man didn’t support Trump…”
The shirts provoked a negative reaction, but it wasn’t the only appearance at Paris Fashion Week that made headlines.
West also made his first ever appearance as a model on the catwalk after appearing incognito at a Balenciaga show, which saw models parade around a runway caked in mud.
