Kanye West continues to do things to piss everyone off, despite saying he is no longer in the “sunken place.” The rapper and father-of-three stopped by the Fader office this week to promote new music that he says is coming “very soon.”
West was excited about the previews he gave to the office and can be seen with a bigger-than-life smile on his face.
Y’all ready to hear this new Kanye album? ?

However, many online couldn’t focus on his face, nor his music, because West was sporting a pretty ridiculous and offensive outfit. On his head, West showed up in a “Make America Great Again” hat, something that he was dragged for wearing in the past. And, while many were outraged he was wearing the had at all, it was the combination of the hat and his sweatshirt that truly bothered people. West was also wearing a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt.
West tried to redeem himself by saying he “freaked” the hat by fixing the brim and making it “his own,” but, no one was buying into it.

Twitter was angry and outraged that West was trying to market himself as someone who “loves everyone” instead of standing up for the right side of history.

It takes some seriously willful ignorance for Kanye to show up to @thefader to do album press in a MAGA cap on the same day as the Ford hearings. Tone deaf.

Kanye West wearing a maga and Kollin kapernick sweater is like supporting someone who killed someone and then showing up to the person’s funeral who was killed…

Kanye West wearing a MAGA hat while also wearing a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt is the greatest visual definition of an oxymoron that I could give you.

If Kanye West wearing a MAGA hat on the day of the Kavanaugh hearing isn’t a sign that we should officially cancel him I don’t know what is…
