Kanye Wests Calls For “Multiracial Women Only” At Yeezy Season 4 Casting Call
Kanye [West] is Kanye-ing once again y’all, and we don’t mean in the form of a Twitter rant. This time, the controversy is stemming from a tweet the rapper sent over the weekend in regards to his Yeezy Season 4 casting call.
As many know, West recently packed out Madison Square Garden for a grand presentation of his Yeezy Season 3 collection and The Life of Pablo album reveal. Of course, the models were one of the talks of the happening besides the music. Beautiful and diverse, there were a plethora of guys and gals rocking West’s tattered clothes and it all seemed quite iconic – Naomi Campbell even hit the runway and posed with the youthful models.
However, for Season 4, West apparently has a different vision. One that would mean even a legendary supermodel like Campbell wouldn’t be casted or asked to participate. For the New York City casting that will take place today on Sunday, Sept. 4, the guidelines detail “multiracial women only” and no makeup.
Naturally, immediately after he tweeted out the information, plenty of folks on gave their opinions on the guidelines of his casting call – all mostly giving him the ultimate side eye while simultaneously ripping him to shreds.
While some argued that “most African Americans are multicultural,” others offered, “No Asian women & Native American women, either. N****s always want to make the insult about black women.”
This staunch guideline comes after his premiere of the “Fade” video at the MTV Video Music Awards where the beautifully brown Teyana Taylor stole the show with her #BlackGirlMagic. But hey, Kanye is back Kanye-ing and folks are out here talking about it.
Either way it goes, the words on the casting call created a divide, in the sense of one group of individuals being better than the other. Or maybe it’s just a publicity stunt? We’ll have to wait and see.
