Kanye West Demands Reporter Get Removed From 2018 New York Fashion Week Event
Kanye West flexes his clout. Last night (Sept. 7), the rapper was attending Ralph Lauren's 50th anniversary fashion show at 2018 New York Fashion Week when he ordered that one particular reporter be removed from the event. TMZ reported the news earlier today.
According to the celebrity news site, Yeezy told one of the show's organizers that he would leave the Central Park event if that reporter in question wasn't kicked out of the event. In video from the scene, we can see Yeezy making it clear that the only way he'd stay at the NYFW event was if the reporter was removed.
"Do you wanna do that, or do you want me to leave?" 'Ye can be heard saying, indicating that if one of the event's facilitators don't remove the reporter, he'll bounce.
Apparently, 'Ye took umbrage to the unnamed journalist after she asked him about the brief Instagram beef his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, had with model Tyson Beckford last month. If you recall, it was then that Beckford left a disapproving comment under an image of Kim K. In response, Kim insinuated that Beckford didn't like the picture because he was gay, causing people to label her clapback a homophobic one.
Getting back to Yeezy's NYFW exploits, the exact question the reporter asked remains unknown. She left the event before she could be kicked out.
