Vogue’s Anna Wintour won’t be working with Kanye West again
On Friday, a Vogue representative told Page Six that the magazine and its editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, had no intentions to work with Kanye West in the future due to the rapper’s anti-Semitic comments and support for the White Lives Matter movement.
The 45-year-old rap musician and the 72-year-old Wintour have been close friends for many years. She invited him to her annual Met Gala in 2009, and two years later, after he and his now-ex-wife Kim Kardashian were married, she featured him on the cover with Kim.
Wintour sported the Yeezy founder’s new sunglasses brand in press images sent out to advertise the shades last month, despite actively criticizing Kardashian online over their children.
After West mocked one of Wintour’s editors, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, at his Paris fashion show for criticizing his White Lives Matter T-shirt, Wintour sent her close friend Baz Luhrmann to film their subsequent reunion on October 4.
After the Grammy winner made several stunning claims about Jewish people and then vehemently backpedaled on them when given the chance to repent, our spokeswoman stated on Friday that the fashion queen was ready to release the prize.
An insider claims that Anna is fed up and has made it clear to the staff at Vogue that Kanye is no longer welcome in the company’s inner circle.
Whether or not this will result in Vogue’s website no longer carrying images from his fashion presentations remains to be seen, but it is probably reasonable to assume that he will not be invited to the Met Gala again and will not be featured on the magazine’s cover again.
