Will the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 make up for Kanye’s slavery comment?

The crowd has been on an off about how to feel towards Kanye since he came back to Twitter. His online rants – yet entertaining – seem to go on and on without end. And his “slavery sounds like a choice” comment sure got things heated up. But maybe tweeting about the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 could get him back on track? Right? meh…

 

Kanye West’s Reputation

According to his tweets, Ye feels like he’s finally out of the “sunken place” and he’s not afraid of any form of self-expression. His rants on Twitter are allegedly in the service of promoting love and understanding. But what’s to say of his comments in a TMZ interview when he said that 400 years of slavery sounds like a choice?

Tweets

People started using the hashtag #SlaveryWasAChoice mocking his comment:

Petition

As a response to that comment, someone made a petition asking Adidas to let go of West. More than 20,000 people have signed it and people are still signing it every day to reach 25,000 names.

Event Shutdown

Usually, with Kanye’s name, there’s a long line of impatient hypebeasts at any storefront. That wasn’t the case with the Yeezy x 2XU event in Sydney. Because barely anyone showed up, the event had to close down.

Snoop Dogg

An appalled Snoop Dogg even photoshopped a picture of Kanye West as a white man.

The new. Kanye well allwhite now way to go dude

Tweeting: Yeezy Boost 700 V2

Despite the backlash, Kanye’s show must go on. Taking to Twitter, he kept his responses short and apologized for nothing. He continued to use the internet to share information with us about things happening over at the Yeezy company. That’s when he shared the latest silhouette from Adidas Yeezy.

Among his 2018 releases (sometimes questionable), the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 gets deserves a thumbs up for trying. He even mentioned that the new rendition of the Wave Runner’s silhouette will drop in Q4, which is some time between October and December.

And as usual, this isn’t the first time we get a look at the 700 V2. However, it’s the first time we get confirmation from the man himself about the name and colorway. However, we’re not sure how to feel about that colorway. What can compete with the fresh Wave Runner colors?

Although he told Charmalagne that he’s on all kinds of drugs, would you forgive the man? Well, if you do let him off for his mindless comments, or if you care only about the shoes, you should keep your head up for a grey suede colorway hitting stores in Fall/Winter. The white one is clean as well but has some white Yung-1 vibes. What do you think?
