Black Lives Matter movement was started socially and politically to protect and fight for the rights, equality and protection towards Black people in 2014. The movement and the slogan itself have a long history and contribute a lot to the fight against racism, discrimination and inequality to Black community. However, White Lives Matter does not even have a tolerable meaning. 
In fact, it is a "white supremacist phrase". It’s a hate slogan in order to mock and discriminate BLM movement and used by several white supremacist and neo-Nazi organizations including The Klux Klux Klan and the Aryan Renaissance Society. The Anti-Defamation League called it hate and racist speech. 
Kanye, a conservative himself, has several times disturbed Black community for his anti-Blackness. He once wore the Confederate flag even though most people consider it a hate and racist symbol. Basically, he lives off Black culture and now, is betraying Black people. It’s even far more than disappointment. Furthermore, he even made Black models wear and catwalk in this controversial shirt.

This action, obviously, received disagreement from the public and also, celebrities. Jaden Smith, one of the guests from the show in Paris Fashion Week, left early and left a Tweet on his Twitter “Black Lives Matter” and “True Leaders Lead…I don’t care who’s it is if I don’t feel the message I’m out”. 
Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson also posted a review about the show on her Instagram page and pointed out her disagreement toward Kanye and his show. The rapper stirred the debate and bullied her by calling her “not a fashion person”. Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid also sider her to speak against him being a bully and racist. 
While being asked whether there was an explanation for this or it was just marketing, he did not feel like regretting or feeling sorry about it. The rapper stated “So the answer to why I wrote ‘White Lives Matter’ on a shirt is: They do. It’s an obvious thing.” He continued “I just channel the energy, it just feels right. It’s using a gut instinct, a connection with God and just brilliance.”
