Diddy: ‘Free thinker’ Kanye West’s ‘White Lives Matter’ tees were ‘misconstrued’

Kanye West defended his controversial “White Lives Matter” T-shirts in a Wednesday Instagram post. 

“Here’s my latest response when people ask me why I made a tee that says white lives matter… THEY DO,” the rapper, 45, captioned a photo of a black, long-sleeved version of the garment spread out on the floor. 

Conservative media personality Candace Owens — who posed in one of the shirts at West’s Paris Fashion Week presentation, where he debuted them — left a series of crying-laughing emojis in the comments section.

Sources close to West told Page Six this week that the hip-hop star-turned-fashion designer is baffled by the backlash that his YZY Season Nine collection received.
