Gigi Hadid blasts ‘bully’ Kanye West for dissing Vogue editor: You’re a ‘joke’ – Page Six

Let’s have a toast for Gigi Hadid.

The model called Kanye West a “bully” via Instagram on Tuesday after the rapper mocked Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s style choices for not approving of his widely-condemned “White Lives Matter” shirts.

“You wish u had a percentage of her intellect. You have no idea haha…If there’s actually a point to any of your s–t she might be the only person that could save u,” Hadid, 27, commented under a post West, 45, shared.

“As if the ‘honor’ of being invited to your show should keep someone from giving their opinion..? Lol. You’re a bully and a joke.”

The rapper had previously posted a photo of Karefa-Johnson to his Instagram where she was seen wearing lace-up brown boots, a striped knit skirt, a casual yellow graphic tee and a corduroy trench coat. The fashion journalist completed her look with a blue Balenciaga purse, mirror sunnies and a chunky necklace.

“This is not a fashion person,” West captioned the photo on Instagram, adding, “You speak on Ye Ima speak on you Ask Trevor Noah,” he said referencing his beef with the late-night host.

In another post, West wrote of the editor’s outfit, “I KNOOOOOW ANNA HAAAATES THESE BOOTS,” referring to Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour.

His criticism comes after Karefa-Johnson took to social media to slam the “White Lives Matter” shirts West debuted at his Yeezy fashion show in Paris on Monday.

The model called West a “bully” and a “joke” as she defended Karefa-Johnson.

“I’m fuming… collecting my thoughts …,” she wrote via her Instagram Story along with a video from the Yeezy fashion show, calling West’s design “Indefensible behavior.”

“I guess I get what he tried to do– he thought it was duchampian. It wasn’t,” she wrote in another IG Story. “It didn’t land and it was deeply offensive, violent and dangerous.”

She also shared screenshots of a conversation she had with a friend about the shirt, calling West’s designs irresponsible despite understanding his intentions.

“He was trying to illustrate a dystopian world in the future when whiteness might become extinct or at least would be in enough danger to demand defense,” she explained.

The editor made clear that she finds West’s “White Lives Matter” shirts extremely dangerous.

She also told her friend, ” I understand his idea that the [Make America Great Again] hat was a readymade And it’s value was intrinsic to context–signature of the artist. When Worn by trump it’s racist, when [worn] by Kanye it’s about liberation. He neglected to realize the importance of object when he tried to extend that kind o subversion to the BLM slogan. One is object one is ethos,” she wrote.

Karefa-Johnson said that she was “fuming” over West’s “White Lives Matter” shirts.

Karefa-Johnson then shared a statement defending herself for sharing her thought process on the matter.

“There is no excuse, there is no art here. I’m sorry I failed to make that clear—I thought I did,” she wrote. “I do think if you asked Kanye, he’d say there was art, and revolution, and all of the things in that t-shirt. There isn’t.”

She concluded, “As we all work through the trauma of this moment, especially those of us who suffered in that room, let’s have some grace for one another.”

West had previously defended his “White Lives Matter” shirt, writing on Instagram, “Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam now it’s over you’re welcome.”
