Unexpected Instagram Comeback by Kanye West
Kanye West made a surprise return to Instagram, on Sunday night, while asking fans to provide a caption for his post. The picture Ye used shows a slim runway model wearing a gray outfit with red glasses. He took the photo from Balenciaga’s Winter 2023 fashion show in Paris. The brand shared the image on its own Instagram page, just hours prior to Kanye’s post. “Look 44, Winter 23,” read the caption. “Round Shoulder Long Sleeve Turtleneck, Low-Waist Fitted Pants, Biker Boot, Speed Cat Sunglasses.”
As for Kanye’s post, he captioned the photo, “Write a caption…” A number of fans and fellow celebrities commented on the post, including YG who wrote, “Yeezy back !!!!!” Stefflon Don asked, “Where the hell you been at?” before providing the caption idea: “When its the time of the month but he still wanna taste.” While he’s back on Instagram, Ye remains suspended from Twitter.
Kanye With Paparazzi In L.A.
Balenciaga was one of many companies to cut ties with Kanye West, last year, due to a series of erratic behaviors. He made countless antisemitic remarks, including a threat to “go Death Con 3” on Jewish people, praised Adolf Hitler, and much more. In October, the brand announced in a statement: “Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist.”
After a tumultuous stretch for West in the fall of 2022, he’s mostly avoided headlines in the last couple of months. In February, however, he had a heated run-in with paparazzi in which he demanded privacy for himself and his new wife, Bianca Censori. “I still got rights as a man,” he told a photographer at the time. “I still got rights as a man. You ain’t taking no more photos. And tell everybody else they ain’t taking no more photos of my wife. You want me to follow you and your wife? Let me take pictures of your wife? I’mma start taking pictures of your wife.” Check out Kanye’s new IG post below.
