Kanye West has spoken up about Balenciaga and fans have mixed reactions

Kanye West has made some bold claims yet again, this time on fashion house Balenciaga. The rapper said, “all of these celebrities out here, don’t let them influence you because they are controlled by the people who really influence the world.” He was referring to celebrities that have kept mum about Belanciaga’s highly criticized advertisement campaign, which showcases young girls holding bonded teddy bears and more.

Although the fashion brand immediately removed the campaign upon receiving criticism and apologized, there are questions as to how it was allowed to be shot in the first place. The video of Ye speaking with TMZ is on social media now, and fans have some mixed reactions to his comments.

Tweets pointed at how the brand swiftly swept the big controversy under the rug with an apology. Alot of fans agree how Kanye was right about the whole fiasco and how some celebrities are controlled by brands. Both Kim Kardashian and Ye would endorse Balenciaga. While Ye left, the Kardashian is still in splits about her partnership with the brand.
