Kanye West rejects backlash to selling Yeezy apparel in bags

Kanye West is shutting down critics who shamed him for selling his new Yeezy clothing in large sacks that some have likened to garbage bags.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, the rapper dismissed his haters, explaining that his recent collaboration with clothing store Gap is part of his mission to make fashion more egalitarian and accessible. He also clarified that the clothing will be displayed in construction bags and not in garbage bags.

“Look, man, I’m an innovator,” West told Fox News correspondent Eric Shawn outside a Gap store in Times Square.

“I’m not here to sit down and apologize for my ideas. That’s what the media is trying to do: get us to apologize for any idea that doesn’t fall under it exactly how they want us to think.”

Yes’s remarks come days later a viral tweet by @owen__lang showed the Yeezy merch in huge bags piled on the Gap floor. Tweeter claimed in the caption that a Gap sales rep said, “You got angry” when he saw the clothes on hangers and insisted the staff put the items back in the sacks.

In response to the photos, a person accused the musician of a “fetish with homeless people as ‘fashion muses'” while another “couldn’t imagine paying $200 for basic clothes out of a bag on the floor.”

The ‘Flashing Lights’ hitmaker previously explained that his Yeezy Gap collection, which ranges from a $40 lanyard to a $340 parka, was inspired by “the kids” and “the homeless.”

“This is not a joke,” Ye told Fox News. “This isn’t a game. This isn’t just a celebrity collaboration. This is my life. I’m fighting for a position to be able to change clothes and bring the best design to people.”
