Although he says that he is no longer in the “sunken place”, Kanye West somehow still manages to piss everyone off. Recently, the rapper stopped by the Fader office to promote the new album that he says is coming “very soon.” He is seen excited about the previews he gave to the office and grinning from ear to ear.
Y’all ready to hear this new Kanye album? 👀

However, many people failed to notice his smile or his new music, instead, they were focused on his outfit that was considered offensive and ridiculous. On his hat, the rapper wore a “Make America Great Again” hat, and if that alone was not enough, he even wore a sweatshirt that truly bothered many people, as he was also wearing a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt.
Obviously, to say that Kanye was a walking contradiction that day is an understatement, as Donald Trump and Colin Kaepernick could not be on more opposite ends in terms of their views and morals. West tried to excuse himself by saying that he “freaked” the hat by fixing the brim and making it “his own”, however, no one was buying it.

Everyone on Twitter was outrageous saying that Kanye was trying to sell himself as someone who “loves everyone” instead of standing up for the right side of history.
Kanye is at the The FADER officers wearing a MAGA hat and a Kaepernick sweatshirt. Together. At the same time. Y’all. The system has really outglitched itself. pic.twitter.com/kyTTSWh0IK

It takes some seriously willful ignorance for Kanye to show up to @thefader to do album press in a MAGA cap on the same day as the Ford hearings. Tone deaf.

Kanye West wearing a maga and Kollin kapernick sweater is like supporting someone who killed someone and then showing up to the person’s funeral who was killed…

Kanye West wearing a MAGA hat while also wearing a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt is the greatest visual definition of an oxymoron that I could give you.

If Kanye West wearing a MAGA hat on the day of the Kavanaugh hearing isn’t a sign that we should officially cancel him I don’t know what is…
