*Kanye West is known for calling out folks when he feels he’s been wronged.
And the world of fashion is no exception as he singled out the industry for discriminating against him for being a heterosexual instead of gay.
“I feel like I got discriminated in fashion for not being gay,” Yeezy said during an interview with SHOWstudio on Tuesday (Oct. 6) while referencing the thoughts of people regarding Frank Ocean coming out as a gay man. “In music, you definitely get discriminated in music if you are gay. It takes amazing talents to break down barriers. Everyone thought that when Frank Ocean dropped that it was going to be bad for his career. I feel like it’s so cliché to speak about him as it relates to this subject, but there are people who broke the ground and he broke the ground. The people that break the stereotypes make history.”
As the interview progressed, West referenced Caitlyn Jenner and the support she’s gotten from him and the Kardashians while going more into breaking down barriers.
“The first thing I thought about was a black radio show host maybe possibly making jokes because the black culture is generally homophobic,” he said. “Then it was like, ‘F–k what people say. F–k what people think.’ I feel proud to be in a family that has so many people breaking ground for generations to come. I’m still getting acquainted to what’s politically correct [to say].”
