The cancelations are coming in as hot and ready as a Little Caesar’s pizza for Ye a.k.a Kanye West. His antisemitic rants and George Floyd slander have led to him being dropped by multiple companies, from JP Morgan Chase to Balenciaga. Who will showcase Kanye’s body sock collection now?! Well, don’t ask Anna Wintour to back Ye’s fashion vision because she’s also severing ties with the beleaguered rapper. Damn, even Anna, the woman who proudly put Kim Kardashian’s ass on the front cover of Vogue, is calling it quits. Despite these major disassociations, Kanye still has clout. What says “My life totally isn’t in the toilet” more than hanging out with Candace Owens and Kid Rock and buying the useless social platform Parler!
Kanye’s been going down a troubling path ever since his separation from Kim, but his attempts to torpedo his life have gone into overdrive over the last month. To catch you up on the most recent stops in this high-speed trainwreck, Kanye wore a White Lives Matter t-shirt at his Paris fashion show, went on Tucker Carlson’s show to take a few swipes at Lizzo and Kim, got kicked off of Instagram, and Twitter for going on antisemitic rants, continued to spew unairable hate speech, went to the premiere of Candace Owen’s “documentary” attacking George Floyd and BLM, decided to buy right-wing social platform Parler, and has been losing brand partnerships left and right. Even Donald Trump is like, “Please go get some help.” When DT is offering sage advice, we’ve entered uncharted waters. The bad press was too much for Anna, so she’s officially done with Kanye. via Page Six:
A Vogue spokesperson told Page Six exclusively on Friday that neither the magazine nor its editor-in-chief Anna Wintour intend to work with Kanye West again after his anti-Semitic rants and support for the White Lives Matter cause.
Just last month, Wintour modeled the Yeezy founder’s new sunglasses line in press images sent out to promote the shades — even after he publicly bullied Kardashian online about their children.
And then on Oct. 4, Wintour sent her longtime close pal, Baz Luhrmann, to film the reconciliation between West and one of her editors, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, after he mocked her fashion sense because she criticized him for wearing a White Lives Matter T-shirt at his Paris fashion show.
But on Friday, sources told us the fashion royal is finally ready to cut the Grammy winner loose after he made a series of stunning threats against Jewish people, and then aggressively doubled down on them after he was given the opportunity to apologize.
“Anna has had enough,” an insider told us, adding, “She has made it very clear inside Vogue that Kanye is no longer part of the inner circle.”
Boy, Anna really didn’t want to cut off Kanye, but when someone threatens to go “death con 3” on a group of people, you just gotta call it. If you thought that being dropped by one of his most powerful fashion allies was enough to get Kanye to put a lid on it, you’d be very wrong because Kanye is UNcancelable! via Page Six:
Following his oldest daughter’s basketball game on Friday night, the rapper addressed the controversy swirling around him, including Balenciaga ending their business relationship.
“I ain’t losing no money,” he told TMZ, shrugging. “The day I was taken off the Balenciaga site, that was one of the most freeing days.”
Ye, 45, also noted that people are cutting ties with him to simply “score points,” assuming that they are being asked “to not do business with” him because they’re “trying to mute” him.
Kanye commented that he’s going to keep on with the antisemitic claptrap because it’s true in his mind. He also stated that he’s being persecuted for his political beliefs. The meaning of “political beliefs” has really been stretched to cover anything from “I want more money to go to libraries” to “the global cabal is intent on destroying American intuitions like the Olive Garden.” My current political belief is that Kanye needs to be quiet. I think that’s something all of us can stand behind!
