Kanye West Wears ‘White Lives Matter’ T-Shirt Design at YZY Season 9 Presentation Copy

The artist formerly known as Kanye West wore a t-shirt emblazoned with the phrase “White Lives Matter” on the back while addressing attendees at his YZY SZN 9 presentation in Paris on Monday.

Ye, who was also wearing his pair of previously-headlined diamond-studded flip-flops, was spotted in the shirt early into the livestream experience. At the time of this writing, a detailed look at the full design of the t-shirt in question had not been disclosed, although the front does feature a Pope John Paul II photo collage. Several models in the presentation were also seen wearing variations of the same design.


Candace Owens was also in attendance and wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt.

During his opening remarks on Monday, Ye touched on a variety of topics, including how certain outlets focused on the delayed start time of his prior events when such delays were (in Ye’s words) merely a side effect of trying to “present the best idea.”

As for the “White Lives Matter” design, the phrase itself, of course, is often associated with various far-right ideologies and frequently used (as is “All Lives Matter,” et al.) among fervent Trump supporters. In the past, Ye has expressed support for Trump and related assertions.
