Jason Lee Calls Out Kanye West Over ‘White Lives Matter’ Shirts At Paris Fashion Week

Kanye West has been trending on social media after he and Candace Owens wore ‘White Lives Matter’ shirts during his YEEZY SZN 9 show during Paris Fashion Week.

Jason Lee, owner of IG blog Hollywood Unlocked, had been Kanye’s head of media and partnerships.

But yesterday Jason has parted ways with Kanye amid the public backlash over his ex-boss wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt in Paris. Jason posted this photo of conservative pundit Candace Owens and Kanye wearing matching WLM shirts on his Instagram page on Monday.

“I love Ye as a person, and I support free speech. But this is gaslighting black people and empowering white supremacy,” Lee wrote in the photo caption. “Not sure if he has any friends left to tell him but this is utterly disappointing.

“I’m going to exercise free speech and say, nobody black has ever said that white lives don’t matter. But when black people do this it just screams the need for white validation.”

Not to mention, adding Candace Owens to this photo is beyond reprehensible. I understand he believes in her right to free speech but her speech is typically embedded in self hate, a determination to promote white supremacy, and she lacks integrity. This is sad.”

In response to the backlash, Kanye West wrote; “EVERYONE KNOWS THAT BLACK LIVES MATTER WAS A SCAM. NOW ITS OVER YOU’RE WELCOME.”
