Kanye West Blasted for Requesting only Multiracial Models for Yeezy Fashion Show
Kanye West is currently under fire after he made an announcement that he would like multiracial women only in a casting call for his upcoming Yeezy Season 4 fashion show.
Kanye will be showcasing his collection on September 7 on the opening day of New York Fashion Week, so he decided to schedule a casting for the show in New York today. He took to his Twitter yesterday to announce the kind of women he wanted for the show.
“Season 4 Casting – Multiracial Women Only – No makeup please come as you are,” it read.

The tweet caused fans to react and Kanye suffered a backlash for requesting to see only mixed raced women. While some considered the casting conditions to be racist, others questioned how the father of two would be able to determine on the spot if someone was multiracial.

This Kanye West casting call is no surprise considering this man thinks sleeping with white women is the key to ending racism

@kanyewest This is a major issue. In an industry that consistently cuts Black models out, you do this?! You are the absolute worst. Truly.

Earlier this month, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian was also dragged for filth by fans after meeting with mothers whose kids were killed by gun violence and they all turned out to be white.
