Kanye West has questions for the influx of people who have attacked him over his newly debuted “White Lives Matters” t-shirt.
The Chicago rapper and producer wonders where these people were to support him at other inopportune times, like when he claimed Kim Kardashian kept him from seeing his kids.
“So why did everyone feel so free to attack me about my t-shirt but Candace Owens was the only public figure to say that it was wrong for the Kardashians to keep me from seeing my daughter,” he wrote to Instagram on Wednesday (October 5). “Or we just chime in when we want to tear a Black man down for actually having a different political opinion?
“And for all audience so outraged about my t-shirt where were you when I couldn’t see my kids? I went public in hope of public support at the time.”

Kanye’s post attracted a response from one member of the Kardashian tribe as Khloe defended her sister Kim in the comments section.
“Ye, I love you,” she wrote. “I don’t want to do this on social media but YOU keep bringing it here. You are the father of my nieces and nephews and I’m trying to be respectful but please STOP tearing Kimberly down and using our family when you want to deflect.
“Again with the birthday narrative. Enough already. We all know the truth and in my opinion, everyone’s tired of it. You know exactly where your children are at all times and YOU wanted separate birthdays. I have seen all of the texts to prove it. And when you changed your mind and wanted to attend, you came.”
She continued: “Like you have pointed out yourself, she is the one taking care of your kids 80% of the time. Please Leave her and the family out of it so that the kids can be raised peacefully. I come from a place of love and I am happy to continue this conversation privately if you wish.”
Kanye then reposted Khloe’s comment and responded in his caption claiming the Kardashian family essentially “kidnapped” Chicago and wouldn’t tell him the address of her birthday party until Travis Scott was the one to actually give it to him and he showed up.
“YOU ARE LYING AND ARE LIARS YALL BASICALLY KIDNAPPED CHICAGO ON HER BIRTHDAY SO SHE COULD REMEMBER HER FATHER NOT BEING THERE TRAV GAVE ME THE ADDRESS OF MY CHILDS PARTY THATS HOW YALL PLAY WITH BLACK FATHERS,” he wrote.
“YALL ALSO THREW A PARTY BEFORE PSALMS BIRTHDAY WHEN I WAS FLYING BACK FROM JAPAN TO BE THERE FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND THE FIRST I HEARD ABOUT IT WAS SEEING PICS OF THE PARTY ON LINE.”
Ye added: “ALSO I SHOULD SEE MY CHILDREN 100 % OF THE TIME BUT SINCE THERE’S A SEPARATION IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN 50% OF THE TIME YA’LL WOULDN’T HAVE PLAYED WITH DONDA LIKE THAT IN JESUS NAME.”
It’s been a chaotic week in the life of Kanye West since he put on his YZY SZN 9 fashion show in Paris earlier this week. He’s been criticized by the likes of Tremaine Emory, Boosie Badazz and Ahmaud Arbery’s mother for referring to Black Lives Matter as a “scam.”
