Watch out Louis Vuitton, you are officially on Kanye West’s bad side!
During an interview with 92.3 NOW radio today, Yeezy waged a war against the head of Louis Vuitton, Yves Carcelle, for refusing to take a meeting with him. In response, the rapper asked all his fans to boycott the French brand during their holiday shopping this year.
“Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January,” he said. “While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said, ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’ I said, ‘Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.’”
Ye said Carcelle still refused to sit down with him, so now he’s using his power and influence to get his attention.
“Now do you wanna meet with me,” he asked. “Influence…they think that I don’t realize my power!”
This isn’t the first problem the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton Don has had with the luxury fashion house. In 2009, he designed a sneaker collection for the brand but was ultimately disappointed with the pricing.
“If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now I wouldn’t because the prices are just too extreme and I don’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be a part of what the ideas are,” he said on Power 106′s Big Boy’s Neighborhood last month. “That’s the problem to me with luxury.”
