Gabriella and Kanye West

Kanye West got in trouble with Vogue after he made fun of Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, the magazine’s global fashion editor at large, in public for criticizing his Yeezy fashion show.
Kanye West said bad things about Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson on social media, so the fashion magazine put out a statement condemning him.

“Vogue stands with our global fashion editor at large and longtime contributor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson,” the news source said on Oct. 4. “She was singled out and picked on. It’s unacceptable.”

The statement also said that Gabriella and Kanye talked after his Yeezy fashion show, where he wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt, which Gabriella later called “irresponsible.”

“Voices like hers are needed now more than ever,” the Vogue statement said. “Today, in a private meeting with Ye, she told him the truth again in the way she liked best, on her own terms.”

Kanye, who is 45 years old, also wrote on Instagram that he had a two-hour meeting with his “SISTER” Gabriella on October 4 before they went out to dinner. The rapper said, “We apologized to each other for how we made each other feel.” “WE REALLY GOT ALONG, AND WE’VE BOTH FOUGHT TO BE ACCEPTED IN A WORLD THAT’S NOT OURS.”

How do they feel about the matter now? He also said, “SHE DIDN’T AGREE, I DIDN’T AGREE, WE DIDN’T AGREE.”

On Oct. 3, during Paris Fashion Week, Kanye showed his Yeezy Season 9 collection for the first time. The “Donda” rapper and some of his models wore “White Lives Matter” shirts during the show. Kanye told the crowd at the show, “This is not something we can handle.” “My name is Ye, and everyone knows that I’m in charge.”

Gabriella called Kanye’s message “incredibly irresponsible and dangerous” on her social media. This made Kanye post pictures of the editor with captions that made fun of her looks on his own Instagram.

Kanye’s actions made a lot of people in the fashion world angry, including Gigi Hadid, who supported Gabriella by calling the Yeezy designer “a bully and a joke.”

 

The supermodel wrote under one of his posts, “You wish you had even a small amount of her intelligence.” “You have no idea haha…. If any of your nonsense actually has a point. She could be the only one who can save you. As if the “honor” of being on your show should make someone afraid to say what they think. Lol.”
