Kanye West Called out for Ripping Off Lesser Known Designer


Earlier this year Kanye West filed a lawsuit against Walmart for ripping off his shoe design [click here if you missed that]. 

Now a lesser known fashion designer is accusing Kanye of doing the exact same thing to her...

In a video posted on Instagram designer Katana details how Yeezy invited her fashion house to meet with him in Atlanta to show him their designs and then, to their dismay, he ripped off their ideas without compensation or credit.

I've never bought anything Kanye related and this further gives me reason not to. He's not as great as people make him out to be especially if he's ripping off designers but have the nerve to sue Wal-mart.

Oh my!!! Infinity Gods really Godly cuz that message had all kinds of energy & powers in it...It angers me that Ye continues to Not pay black people for their work. Like TF kind of bullshit is that??? You'd think black people would be the 1st to get paid but ni66as forget the struggle w the quickness!!

Welp when you're not a real designer who actually has talent and goes to college and gets a fashion design degree.....this can happen. Koonye is a prolific designer only in his manic mind.

Not surprised at anything this nut case does. As R said he is not a designer. A knock off artist at best. Just like Zara stores.

I can't get with the symbolism on the original or copied product but the bigger issue for me is them being so impressed with Captain Looney Tunes in the first place. His reputation of not paying his people speaks for itself, and him having no history of outwardly supporting or propping up Black creatives/entrepreneurs should've been their biggest clue. Seems to me that instead of focusing on their business goals they wanted to name drop, became star struck and got played.

And the same lonely, jealous jack-hole comes here everyday, reads all the comments from these three people, talks shit or calls them lesbians, then co-signs itself.

I mean, it's not like this is the first time Klownye has ripped off a smaller designer, he does it all the time. She was stupid for even showing him her stuff.

Which mean he did rip off Azealia Banks album cover. This lazy slack jawed nigga is a disgrace. All artists and creators need to get their shit copyrighted. I just sent a free copy of my novel to a famous rock artist in the UK after she expressed interest in it. I signed my name on that shit and while she's reading, it's going to be going through the copyright process. I'm grateful that she's interested, but you can't trust these damn celebrities!!

Yes! That's the worst! He copies off people, continue to get richer, but none of them get paid.

Rihanna was just exposed on Twitter for the same shit. Her talentless, fucking-to-close-deals ass doesn't pay any of her Fenty ambassadors and she's scammedher customers before. Not only that her businesses are under investigation for abusive child labor in Asia. She's been exposed for copying off of an unkmown lingerie designer, ripping off Marc Jacobs cosmetic lines, stealing from Lauryn Hill's daughter (who the fuck steals from a damn KID), and claiming FIRSTS that have proven to be false with there's a Black cosmetic business woman and another Black woman working with Estee Lauder who were working on cosmetics for darker women before Fenty came out.

Kanye is the same! Everything he created is a rip off of a Black or Asian designer. Yes, he's a good producer. But 9th Wonder and JDilla have always be the more superior producers from his generation. 9th Wonder just chose to stay grounded and not sell out, and JDilla died prematurely. Kanye got to where he is stealing from lesser known artists, exploiting his artists (i.e. Teyana Taylor). Nothing he creates is innovating. Is his music and brand influential? Yes! But it would be more respected if he didn't steal and scam and claim it all his own!

This is tacky as FUCK!

Kanye with that fakeababy prank thing is still trending!

@11:33 Nobody owns the Star of David, but the Star of David WITH a Cross inside IS a creative work that Kanye STOLE. Goodbye. Slimy ass tryna play dumb.

wait a minute so this dude had kanye on record asking about his designs and then invites him to show/discus more just to turn around and jack this kid's idea?

I think this guy on pretty good evidence for a court case or something good grief!

Well, I think he learned that shit from the Carters. He saw how stealing works for them. How it brings them wealth, fame, power and pitiful idol worshippers and thought he'd do the same and get the same results. Of course, I also remember a few law suits taking place. But we shall see. lol
