For the artist now known as Ye, the disaster may be ongoing, since he wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt at his Paris Fashion Week show, tanked his collaboration with The Gap, got suspended from social media for anti-Semitism, and made headlines for clashes with Diddy, Kid Cudi, and Meek Mill — all this month. Let’s just say the rapper-fashion designer has never shied away from expressing himself, including wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap on “Saturday Night Live” or calling his former mother-in-law Kris Kardashian “Kris-Jong-Un.” Maybe the first hint of the ride to come was him ruining Taylor Swift’s winning moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. When she won for Best Female Video, he ran onto the stage to interrupt her speech, blurting, “Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!" It became the source of a thousand memes but did little to endear him to the audience.
