Ye (West’s preferred name) has been incredibly vocal on his Instagram account over the past few days, in the wake of receiving criticism from Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, and after being seen wearing “White Lives Matter” t-shirts with right-wing commentator Candace Owens.
Celebrities have been piling on with stern words for Ye after he openly ridiculed Karefa-Johnson.
“Wait Am I canceled again???” Kanye asked on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of a headline which showed Bieber defending Karefa Johnson. “Justin please let me know,” Kanye added, seemingly pulling Hailey’s husband into the argument.
In a separate post, Ye wrote a lengthy post addressing the recent controversy surrounding his t-shirt, and finished the message with references to Justin Bieber and his former friend John Legend.
“But I’m sure John Legend still wants a pair,” Ye wrote late on Wednesday, referring to some of his boots,” and Justin, get your girl before I get mad.”
Hailey Bieber never addressed Ye specifically in her Instagram post, but she did follow in the footsteps of Hadid after she had defended Karefa-Johnson.
“My respect for you runs deep my friend!” Bieber wrote on her Instagram stories on Tuesday. “To know is to adore you and to work with you is an honor, the most kind, the most talented, the most fun, the most chic.”
Bieber and West have previously enjoyed a good working relationship, collaborating on the song “Runaway Love” back in 2010.
In June this year, Bieber paid tribute to West on his birthday, stating that his art had moved him in ways like no-one else had.
“Your taste and style has helped shape the artist I am today. Thank you for inspiring me to be confident in the things I want to create,” he wrote.
Ye’s feud with Hailey and Justin Bieber has mostly been sidelined by his ongoing defense of his “White Lives Matter” t-shirt, and a burgeoning feud with Khloe Kardashian relating to him attending his child’s birthday party.
Kardashian called Ye out and asked him to “stop tearing Kimberley down.” West replied furiously on Wednesday with a lengthy message, written in all caps.
“You are lying and are liars basically kidnapped Chicago on her birthday so she could remember her father not being there.”
Newsweek has reached out to Black Lives Matter, Owens, and a representative for West for comment.
