Kanye West has accused Gap of ripping off his Balenciaga designs
Kanye West, who now goes by Ye, claimed that Gap executives allegedly hosted a meeting about his designs that excluded him.
He shared a photo of spalyed-out clothes and iridescent sunglasses of the visor brand on his Instagram handle on August 30, Tuesday.
The Grammy Award winning artist captioned the post with a caption that read, ‘Did Gap have a meeting about me without me?’
Also, a day later, Ye came forward to allege that the retail giant is copying his Yeezy Gap collection in collaboration with Balenciaga. He added that Gap is supposed to be using his designs on their regular t-shirts.
Ye shared a text exchange accusing the organization of copying his designs. He also included pictures of the allegedly stolen design.
He wrote in one of his messages, ‘This is the copy of Gap YGEBB.’
Additionally, he later mentioned that Gap canceled a fashion photo shoot involving children in Japan without his knowledge.
He claimed, ‘But they canceled the photo shoot with my kids in Japan without my knowledge.’
Kanye West lashes out at Gap executives
Kanye West shared a video on social media on August 31st. He showed himself running over Gap executives in Atlanta.
In the video, we can see the Famous singer giving a spirited pep talk to a group of people while subsequently threatening them that he will leave the brand if things don’t go his way.
Ye began his speech by explaining his vision for his Gap collaboration.
He said, ‘We’ve got to have the highest energy brand in the mall.’
The Chicago rapper-producer then delivered an ultimatum to Gap executives asking for his creative freedom.
He continued, “I love Gap… you have to really give me the position to be Ye and let me do what I’m thinking or I’ll have to do the thinking somewhere else.”
Furthermore, when Gap executives began to applaud, believing that Ye’s speech was over, he wasn’t having it.
He warned, ‘Don’t f**king clap … you’re all going to make me quit.’
Regardless, the executives thought it was a joke and laughed. However, the 45-year-old rapper became belligerent.
He concluded, ‘No, it’s not an af*cking joke on behalf of Virgil, on behalf of my mother. I’m telling you what it is.’
