And how rich does he think his average fan is?
So apparently Kanye West doesn't like Luis Vitton anymore, but with this being Kanye, he wasn't ever going to take on his latest feud alone. Crying out to his fans and anyone else who will listen, the rapper has boycotted the fashion giants and wants others to do the same. So, what gives?
Kanye West, angry again
According to TMZ, West appeared on New York's 92.3 NOW radio station to issue a decree to the people of the city, saying, "Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January." Kanye doesn't want any Louis V bags under the Christmas trees in the affluent areas of the city this year for one plain reason; the head of fashion chain wouldn’t meet with him in Paris during a recent visit. Apparently, the French CEO Yves Carcelle couldn't have cared less who Kanye West was and let him know about it when the rapper demanded a meeting.
In a bid to show Carcelle just who Kanye West is, the rapper sent out a call to arms across New York to demonstrate to Carcelle that Kanye West is a man with power and influence. Something tells us that Carcelle still doesn't care who Kanye West is, despite the threats, and the people who usually buy Louis Vitton probably don't care who Kanye is either and they're unlikely to bow down to his requests. Still, you never know.
The rapper was in New York for his Yeezus tour
The rapper has been attacking the fashion industry at every opportunity he can recently, claiming that he has been blackballed by fashion houses across the land because he is black. A more likely explanation might be that Kanye isn't as good a fashion designer he likes to think he is, not that Kanye would ever believe you.
