Kanye West ran to Fox News to defend selling clothes from his Yeezy Gap collection in large “construction” bags that look like garbage bags. He said it was “God’s Plan” for him to set the record straight on the network. Oh. More inside…
Kanye West has a new collection to sell, so he’s back in the headlines with stunts.

This is how they are selling Yeezy GAP. The sales associate said Ye got mad when he saw they had it on hangers and this is how he wanted it. They won’t help you find ur size too, you just have to just dig through everything pic.twitter.com/GNd08Zv1zC

“This is how they are selling Yeezy GAP,” a Twitter user tweeted with a photo of the new collection in large black bags on the floor of a Gap store.
The user tweeted the “sales associate said Ye got mad when he saw they had [his clothes] on hangers” because “this is how he wanted it. They won’t help you find [your] size,” they added, “you just have to just dig through everything.”
Items from the Yeezy Gap collection range from a $40 keychain to a $340 parka.
It’s not at all obvious, but these are the prices. There are no tickets on the ‘garments’. $240 for a hoodie - very expensive compared to Gap’s standards hoodies which cost $39.95 and are on the table across from the garbage bag display #YeezyGappic.twitter.com/niBDvejxot

The “homeless inspo” caused an uproar online with folks dragging Ye for his obsession with homeless people.
Well, Ye wants everyone to know he’s unapologetic and said should stop coming for innovators because that’ll cause them to stop creating. In an interview with Fox News correspondent Eric Shawn (of course), he started off by saying it was “Gods Plan” for him to set the record straight on the network.
“I’m an innovator, and I’m not here to sit up and apologize about my ideas,” Ye said. “That's exactly what the media tries to do. Make us apologize for any idea that doesn't fall under exactly the way they want us to think,” he continued.
The “Heartless” rapper said his goal was to make getting dressed easier for people.
"This is not a joke, this is not a game, this is not just some celebrity collaboration. This is my life. I’m fighting for a position to be able to change clothing and bring the best design to the people.”
Here’s an idea. He could hand out the bags of clothing to the homeless.
Ye received tons of heat for having the apparel in what appeared to be trash/garbarge bags. However, he said they weren’t trash bags, they were black construction bags.
"I'm up here literally working on homeless shelters. There's documentation of it where the city came and tore down my creations while I was doing it," the rapper said. "So no one can tell me I'm insensitive when that stuff that I think about every single day and actually have put my mind and innovation to.”
