Based on his reaction to the backlash, Kanye seemed surprised that social media attacked his White Lives Matter motto. And so he turned to Instagram to react. But his response indicated that he donned the controversial shirt because he feels Black Lives Matter represents, in his words, a “scam.”
In Kanye’s Instagram reaction, he took the approach that his followers should thank him for educating the world about his views. And West posted in his standard all-capital-letters style. “EVERYONE KNOWS THAT BLACK LIVES MATTER WAS A SCAM,” wrote Kanye. “NOW ITS OVER. YOU’RE WELCOME.”
