Kanye West and his barely and/or poorly dressed paramour, Amber Rose, have been hitting up Paris fashion week in various outrageous outfits, many featuring animal fur. As many of you know, the fur industry uses barbaric practices and videos have come out that show extremely inhumane treatment of animals skinned for fur. (Here’s a link to Wikipedia’s description of the controversy of fur farming, which is less disturbing that some of the videos made of these poor creatures. I don’t even want to describe what happens to the animals it’s so bad.)
The animal rights activists rightfully trashed arrogant Kanye online due to all of the overpriced tributes to animal cruelty that he and his girlfriend were wearing. In response, Kanye penned a long all caps rant on his blog comparing wearing fur to personal freedom, civil rights, and creativity. GMAFB! I believe that Kanye has already deleted this regrettable post from his blog as I couldn’t find it there. Plenty of other outlets have preserved it for posterity and for poking fun at Kanye, though:
WHEN IT’S ALL SAID AND DONE, REMEMBER THE FEARLESS, REMEMBER THE DREAMERS, EMEMBER THOSE WHO REPRESENT THE GHETTO…THE FAIRY TALE OF NOTHING TO SOMETHING. I’M BRIEFLY SADDENED BY NEGATIVE COMMENTS, BUT I HAVE TO REMEMBER THOSE PEOPLE ARE SCARED, INCAPABLE OR JUST PLAIN IDIOTS. WE ARE THE F*CKING ROCK STARS BABY. NO COCAINE, JUST LIFE MY NIGGAS!! NO COCAINE, JUST LIFE! IT’S FUNNY TO ME WHEN FASHION BLOGGERS DOWN OUR OUFITS AND THEN SUPER JOCK OUTLANDISH SHIT ON THE RUNWAY BUT THEN THEY DRESS MAD PRUDE AND DON’T LIVE FASHION. WE LIVE IT MAN. F*CK THAT, WE LIVE IT!!! WE LIVE IT SO HARD PEOPLE LIVE THROUGH US! WE REPRESENT YOUR INNER SPIRIT!! THE CHILD IN US ALL, THE BRUTAL HONESTY, THE NAIVETY, THE BRAVE WARRIOR, THE ADRENALINE THAT ALLOWS A MOTHER TO LIFT A CAR IF HER CHILD WAS TRAPPED UNDER IT! REMEMBER, THERE WAS A TIME WHEN EVERYBODY DISSED MICHAEL JACKSON EVERY CHANCE THEY COULD. IMAGINE THE PRESSURE OF BEING A TRUE ICON. VERY FEW HUMAN BEINGS ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE CONSTANT HATE!!! IF WE DON’T DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS THE SHIT, YOU BEAT US UP VERBALLY AND MENTALLY, LIKE A CATHOLIC SCHOOL TEACHER BEATING A CREATIVE STUDENT INTO SUBMISSION. I CAN HEAR YOU SCREAMING ‘COLOR INSIDE THE LINES!!!’ WELL F*CK YOUR COLORING BOOK, COLOR BY NUMBERS APPROACH TO LIFE. AT THE END OF THE DAY WHO ARE WE HURTING??? OH “THE NEW BLACK???” SINCE BARACK IS PRESIDENT BLACKS DON’T LIKE FUR COATS, RED LEATHER, AND FRIED CHICKEN ANY MORE?! WHEN YOU TRULY UNDERSTAND CULTURAL SETTINGS, BOUNDARIES, AND OUR MODERN DAY CASTE SYSTEMS, THEN YOU CAN FEEL THE GLORY AND PAIN FROM THE DAYS OF KINGS IN AFRICA TO THE NEW KINGS OF THE MEDIA. LET THE BALL PLAYERS DANCE AFTER THEY SCORE! IT’S LIFE MY NIGGAS, IT’S LIFE! REMEMBER CLOTHING IS A CHOICE. WE WERE BORN NAKED!!! FRESH IS AN OPINION, LOVE IS OBJECTIVE, TASTE IS SELECTIVE, AND EXPRESSION IS MY FAVORITE ELECTIVE. NO MORE POLITICS OR APOLOGIES!!!
Imma let you finish, but I have to say that Rip Torn had the greatest meltdown of the entire weekend.
If Kanye isn’t apologizing then why he didn’t leave this nonsensical rant up? There are more logical leaps in that paragraph than your average Fox News pundit makes in a day. (Ok, an hour.) In Kanye’s mind, there’s somehow a connection between slavery and calling people cruel for choosing to wear fur. It’s soooo oppressive when people make fun of the luxury coat you were comped while you get paid to sit your privileged ass in a chair watching a fashion show and getting your picture taken. Poor, poor Kanye. He just needs to express himself through fashion and never hear a peep of discouragement or he’ll get out the caps lock and the Hennessy. It’s ok, though, when he crashes the stage at an awards ceremony and interrupts a 19 year-old girl’s acceptance speech.
