Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has shared his thoughts on the “White Lives Matter” t-shirt worn by Kanye West.
West has faced significant backlash for wearing a shirt with the phrase – an appropriation of the Black Lives Matter slogan used to protest racial injustice, discrimination and police brutality – along with models who walked at the show, and conservative pundit Candace Owens.
Now, Diddy has taken to Instagram in response to West’s attire, disagreeing with its message. Diddy – who collaborated with West on Ty Dolla $ign’s 2015 song ‘Guard Down’ – begins the video by defending West as a “freethinker”, saying that he “will always support [his] brother,” but said of West’s stunt: “I don’t rock with it. I’m not with it.”
