Both Kanye West and Candace Owens both stepped out during Ye’s fashion show rocking “white lives matter” t-shirts. Once the posts hit social media celebrities who attended the show plus fans spoke out in outrage saying that the shirt demonstrated hate speech and was problematic to the fight against injustice.
