Kanye Gets Slammed After Inviting Only 'Multiracial Women' To Fashion Week Audition

Kanye West has come under furious backlash after putting out casting call for ‘multiracial’ models only ahead of the release of his latest fashion line.

The controversial rapper, who has a knack for stirring polarity, tweeted the call, on Friday afternoon – that only “multiracial women” should show up to Sunday’s audition for his upcoming “Yeezy Season 4” event.

Kanye also asked for those trying out for a coveted spot as a model for his Yeezy Season 4 line, not to come wearing ‘makeup’.

This prompted polarity, with a wave of disgruntled social media followers accusing the rapper of only wanting light-skinned females in his show.

While some of his followers on Twitter were quick to latch onto Kanye’s request for multiracial women only, saying he was trying to stop black women from being part of his show, others insisted that white models were the ones excluded.

See tweets below:

‘Imagine if a white singer said “WHITE WOMEN ONLY”?’ one person furiously tweeted.

‘No white people,’ another added.

‘Hmm @ multiracial women only. Does that include the dark skinned multiracial women or just the light skinned ones?’ another wrote.

‘This is a major issue. In an industry that consistently cuts Black models out, you do this?! You are the absolute worst. Truly,’ a furious tweeter unleashed on Kanye.
