Kanye West Dragged For Pairing A MAGA Hat With A Colin Kaepernick Sweatshirt

So much for being out of the sunken place.

Published September 27th

Kanye West has been in full damage control mode trying to convince fans that he's departed from the "sunken place" and is heartily sorry for his comments about slavery and unwavering support for Donald Trump.

A recent fashion statement made by the Ye rapper left fans, who were hopeful that the "old Kanye" resurfaced, confused about his real stance and motives.

  1. While promoting his forthcoming album at 'Fader' magazine's offices, the emcee paired a Make America Great Again hat with a Colin Kaepernick sweater.
  2. Like clockwork, social media blew up in shambles slamming Ye for his questionable ensemble.
  3. Other fans were unfazed by West's antics.
  4. Despite the public outcry, West claims he's made some changes into the hat's design.

    According to TMZ, Ye reportedly changed the brim and shape of the front of the hat. He also claims to have put "positive energy" into the hat that many people have associated with racism.

    This is just the latest in a series of questionable decisions from the emcee. On Wednesday (September 26), fans of Kanye West called him out for supporting A$AP Bari in the wake of his controversial sexual assault in July 2017.
