Kanye West Feels The Fashion Industry Discriminates Against Him Because He's Not Gay

Based on assumptions, most men in the high-end fashion industry are suspected of being gay.  They pay attention to details that the average guy would never even notice and this is what makes them great at what they do.

Kanye West also has that sharp eye and creative gene that has propelled him into starting his own fashion line which was widely ridiculed last month when he unveiled his clothing line.

Many people criticized him saying the clothes looked like slave clothes, however European designers have similar pieces that resembles the pieces Kanye chose to put on display.

Check out what Kanye West said during an Interview with ShowStudio in the video below and see what was reported by Huffington Post.

Kanye West said he faced discrimination in the fashion industry because he is not gay.

The rapper made the comments during a nearly two -hour live interview with SHOWstudio on Tuesday for their “In Camera” series.

“I feel like I got discriminated in fashion for not being gay,” he said. “In music, you definitely get discriminated in music if you are gay. It takes amazing talents to break down barriers. Everyone thought that when Frank Ocean dropped that it was going to be bad for his career. I feel like it’s so cliché to speak about him as it relates to this subject, but there are people who broke the ground and he broke the ground. The people that break the stereotypes make history.”

West continued the conversation of trailblazers in reference to Caitlyn Jenner. Jenner previously credited West with opening Kim Kardashian’s mind about her transition. While speaking to SHOWstudio, the “Yeezus” star said he doesn’t care what the rest of the world might think.

“The first thing I thought about was a black radio show host maybe possibly making jokes because the black culture is generally homophobic,” he said. “Then it was like, ‘Fuck what people say. Fuck what people think.’ I feel proud to be in a family that has so many people breaking ground for generations to come. I’m still getting acquainted to what’s politically correct [to say].”
