Kanye West is defending his “trash bag” clothing display as his Yeezy Gap line hit stores around the country. A picture went viral showing the clothing displayed in large bags for customers to sift through and find their sizes. Ye popped up on FOX News Thursday for a quick interview from the Gap location in Times Square. When asked if he understood why some have criticized the clothing displays as insensitive to the homeless, Kanye says, “I’m an innovator, and I’m not here to sit up and apologize for my ideas. 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.” During the interview, Ye pointed out the bags weren’t trash bags, they were large construction bags. Regardless of what people may think of the displays, the clothing has still been widely popular, selling out in multiple locations.
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
