During a radio appearance last week on 92.3 Now, Kanye West encouraged consumers to boycott Louis Vuitton after the head of the French fashion label refused to meet with Kanye while the rapper was visiting in Paris.
“Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you wanna meet with me?” Kanye said. “Influence. They think that I don’t realize my power. They want to marginalize me.”
There is one person that does not share Kanye’s sentiments regarding the giant fashion corporation: comedian Katt Williams. TMZ caught up with the comedian while he was getting into a car at LAX airport yesterday to ask him his opinion on a potential boycott.
“I would hope that’s not what we use all that black power for.” Williams said before adding “I didn’t even know we were mad.”
Williams did go on to say that he appreciated Kanye’s willingness to speak up against Louis Vuitton especially in the wake of Jay Z’s continued involvement with Barneys New York in wake of racial profiling allegations against BNY.
“It’s a good thing for him to say.” Katt said. “I’m saying I appreciate that. Cuz I’m saying that they were talking about Jay Z because of how he responded with Barneys. This is the opposite of that.”
