Gigi Hadid lashes out at Kanye West for ‘bullying’ Gabriella Karefa-Johnson

Gigi Hadid has defended Gabriella Karefa-Johnson after Kanye West singled out Garage magazine’s editor on social media.

The Donda rapper and fashion designer was heavily criticized for sending black models down his Yeezy SZN 9 catwalk at Paris Fashion Week wearing White Lives Matter t-shirts.

Karefa-Johnson was one of many who reacted negatively to the fashion show. West, however, launched a personal rant against the creative director from his Instagram, claiming she’s “not a fashion person.”

Hadid took to her Instagram Stories to issue a statement, describing West as a “disgraceful man” for singleting out Karefa-Johnson.

She added that Karefa-Johnson is “one of the most important voices in our industry.”

In a comment below one of West’s posts, the model added, “You wish you had a percentage of her intellect. You have no idea… if any of your shit really makes any sense, she might be the only person who could save you.

“As if the ‘honor’ of being invited to your show should stop anyone from voicing their opinion? lol You are a bully and a prankster.”

On Tuesday, October 4, West shared two photos of the publisher with his 17.9 million followers on Instagram, with a caption that poked fun at her looks and claimed Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour “hates” the boots the Karefa-Johnson in it carried pictures.

Both posts have since been deleted from West’s account and replaced with a portrait of Karefa-Johnson.

He insisted she was his “sister” and that the two met on Tuesday afternoon (October 4) before heading out to dinner with other celebrities.

West claimed that Wintour “had Baz Luhrmann film our meeting and we’re editing tonight,” adding that the couple “took photos and I was told not to post them.”

Explaining his previous attacks on Karefa-Johnson, he continued: “It felt like she was being used like Trevor Noah and other black people to talk about my facial expression. She explained that her company didn’t tell her to talk about my t-shirt expression.

“We apologized to each other for how we made each other feel. We actually understood each other and both experienced the struggle for acceptance in a world that is not our own. She disagreed, I disagreed, we disagreed.”

The editor and stylist did not publish her own post or comment on West’s claims.

In her critique of his White Lives Matter t-shirts, she said it was “unacceptable behavior” to include them on his runway show.

“The t-shirts this man has designed, produced and shared with the world are pure violence,” she wrote on Instagram. “There is no excuse, there is no art here. I think if you were to ask Kanye he would say there’s art and revolution and all those things in that shirt. There is not any.

“As we all process the trauma of this moment, especially those of us who have suffered in this space, let’s have some mercy for one another.”
