9 Things Kanye Has Worn that Should be Boycotted Instead of Louis Vuitton
Hey! Kanye West hasn't made the news in roughly six hours, so guess who's back with a new controversy!? The hip-hop Zappos hater has a new subject in his trail of contempt: Louis Vuitton. West just blasted the designer label on New York's 92.3 NOW radio station, asking all listeners to boycott the brand, proclaiming, "Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January."
The reason you ask? Is Kanye making a statement about leather and animal rights? Is he re-thinking his extravagant lifestyle because he just really gets Lorde? Did the luxury label do something abhorrent recently like pull a Barilla and say they hate gay people? AU CONTRAIRE. West is reportedly sticking it to the head of Louis Vuitton, Yves Carcelle, because he who refused to meet with West while recently in Paris.
Whether or not West is making a statement about race, hip-hop and the fashion industry are still to be determined.
There’s no doubt that Yeezus knows how to make a statement. Let’s take a look at some of the fashion items we wish West would have boycotted.
