Kanye Tells Diddy "Out of Respect for Everything You've Meant to Me I'll Be Quiet as Virgil" in Text
Kanye West is back at it again this morning, flooding Instagram with posts responding to the backlash he's receiving about his "white lives matter" t-shirts.
Friday, Ye shared a text message exchange between him and Diddy, presumably about the controversial tees. In the first message, he tells the Bad Boy founder he didn't like their conversation and that he plans to sell the tees because "nobody gets in between me and my money."
Later in the down the lengthy message, he tells Puff out of "respect," he's going to "be quiet as Virgil," referring to designer Virgil Abloh who died in November after a two-year battle with an aggressive form of cancer.
In a separate Instagram post, Ye shared Diddy's response saying they'll meet "face to face as soon as he lands. Ye responds 'NIGGA FUUUUUUCK YOU" and calls him a fed. Diddy was spotted in the comment section of that posting saying, "see you soon!"
Ye spared another post where Diddy responds, demanding Kanye to quit it with the internet game and send him an address. Kanye responds, "this is war," after telling the "Gotta Move On" artist he's going to "uses" him as an example "to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me."
Trying to get Kanye to understand the effect the shirts have on the Black community at large, Diddy tells him he's trying to "talk to him as a black man" because its "hiring our people."
Diddy was recently vocal about his disapproval of the tees. He took to Instagram this week to share his thoughts, saying while he said he supports the DONDA rapper as a free thinker, he doesn't rock with the shirt.
"Don't wear the shirt, don't buy the shirt, don't play with the shirt. It's not a joke," he said.
Those comments echoed the stance he made on an appearance on the Breakfast Club Morning Show Monday.
