It has been noted that he has been expelled from Twitter and Instagram, and had business relationships with Balenciaga, Adidas, Foot Locker, the Gap and more end since going public with his antisemitic beliefs. Ye, reportedly married Bianca Censori, a 27-year-old Australian architect who works for his Yeezy company, earlier this month. This time around Ye wore a German armed forces t-shirt as he went shopping with new wife Bianca Censori at under-fire Balenciaga in LA on Wednesday.
Kanye West sparks another controversy
The disgraced rapper, 45, who saw his career and net worth go in free-fall after a series of anti-Semitic remarks, wore a T-shirt emblazoned with a vintage logo of the Bundeswehr – the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Germany for Hitler.
The logo was previously used for the German military in the post Second Word War era – following the Holocaust in which six million Jewish people were murdered by the Nazi party, under the direction of Adolf Hitler.
The logo features the Bundesadler (Federal Eagle) -which has been used in the German coat of arms since 1945.
Kanye’s new wife Bianca wore an extravagant yellow furry jacket and sported slicked back tresses as she joined her new spouse at the shop.
The pair ignited further controversy by visiting Balenciaga, which has suffered a monumental fall from grace after kids were used in ad campaigns holding bondage teddy bears.
The brand cut ties with West back in October amid his anti-Semitism scandals. Uproar over the campaign in November came days after the brand was called out over a separate ad campaign that was entirely its own doing, which showed young children posing with bondage-clad teddy bears.
