Goodwill Admits 'Resting Kanye Face' Chart Was a Bad Idea

Company apologizes for putting Ye in employee newsletter.

Published December 11, 2015

Kanye West is getting an apology from Goodwill after the company used his face to train supervisors on being more “approachable.” The “Do You Suffer From Resting Kanye Face?” chart, which features repeated snapshots of the same Yeezy scowl, was added to a company newsletter.


“Employees want leaders they feel comfortable approaching and communicating with. There is hope!” the newsletter reads, listing “being aware of body language” “staying positive” and “smiling on occasion” among ways to improve. 

Goodwill has since realized that this was a bad idea and pulled the newsletter from all its stores and donation centers. 

Most importantly, they're sorry for mocking Yeezus: "We’d like to apologize to Kanye West, his fans and the community for the use of his image to illustrate an internal training message. It was unacceptable and Goodwill takes full responsibility for this action and meant no disrespect to Kanye."
