Ye declares ‘war’ on Diddy over ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt criticism: My heart is breaking for you folks.
Ye captioned a text message between him and his brother, “My brother misspoke to me but I still love him,” that he posted on Instagram.
After Sean “Diddy” Combs slammed the “White Lives Matter” shirts West presented during his Yeezy season 9 presentation in Paris on Monday, Kanye West, who is now known as Ye, took aim at Combs.
In a text message discussion between the two that Ye revealed in several postings to Instagram on Friday, the 45-year-old declared “war” on the 52-year-old Diddy.
The back-and-forth appeared to follow a heated phone call between West and Diddy.
“I disliked our conversation. These t-shirts are for sale. No one can stand in my way of my money “West wrote.

“My granddad is messaging you right now. Never call me again without any bulls—t unless you have given me the go-ahead. Because I am anyone who purchased that shirt.
West continued, perhaps referring to the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh, who passed away from cancer in November, saying, “Out of respect for everything you’ve meant to me, I’ll stay silent as Virgil.”
Come do something unlawful for me right away, please.
God is Love, West captioned the picture. Although he misspoke to me, I still adore my brother.
In a different screenshot of the text conversation, Diddy’s reply asked for a face-to-face meeting to discuss the situation.
“When I get here, we’ll meet in person. the “Coming Home” song asked “singer penned.
“F—- you, N——a. You ate, “West answered.
The “Flashing Lights” singer revealed another text exchange in which Diddy urged West not to “feel intimidated” and inquired about a new location.
N——a send me an address, Diddy penned. Let’s put an end to this online gaming. Also, don’t feel in danger. You’ll be alright. just love
This isn’t a contest, West retorted. “I’m going to use you as an example to prove to the Jews who directed you to call me that they have no power to intimidate or sway me.
I warned you that this was war. Now out to take care of some business.
I’m simply trying to talk to you as a black man,” Diddy wrote in the final message that West shared on Friday. And the reason I’m speaking with you is that this is harming our people. Stop.”
Ye retorted, “Anything you text I will post.” “I cherish you. And you guys are making me so, so sad. You’re welcome to apologise in advance.”
Diddy’s representative informed Fox News Digital that they had no additional comments.
Following Diddy’s appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Wednesday, where he talked about West’s “White Lives Matter” shirts, the two rappers exchanged texts on Thursday.
Diddy stated that West was a “very free thinker” and that his message was frequently “misconstrued” when the subject of the shirts was brought up.
In order to be clear that he wasn’t supporting West, the record executive added, “That is how he would think if he had actually done it.
“I am aware that White lives matter, but that is not the issue. That was our catchphrase “said he. “We didn’t want anyone else to use that as their slogan.
“We don’t have to disapprove of or exclude Kanye.”
Although Diddy had intended to release a tribute T-shirt to his fellow performer that day, he said West needed to take responsibility for his conduct and that he wouldn’t be doing so.
The founder of Sean John said, “I’m still going to do it. “I just need a couple of days to get over this T-shirt because, right now, we’re the ones that are dying, that are incarcerated, that [live] in poverty, not getting any money for reparations and, on top of that, flooding our communities with drugs and guns.”
West or Candace Owens should not be making “unnecessary noise,” according to Diddy. At West’s fashion show, Owens joined him while donning a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt.
Diddy stated, “It seemed a little tone deaf to me.”
The resident of New York reaffirmed his thoughts on the shirt in a video that he uploaded to Instagram on Thursday.

The ‘White Lives Matter’ T-shirt is something I do have to address, Diddy stated in the video. “I am not about to be addressing every every thing that’s going on in the world on the internet,” Diddy said.
“I’ve always stood behind my brother Kanye as a free thinker, and I will continue to do so. But I don’t rock with the “White Lives Matter” T-shirt, you get what I’m saying? I disagree with it.
Right now, he declared, “all America has planned for us is poverty, imprisonment, and death.” “Therefore, don’t mess with Black Lives Matter before I get to any other lives matter—which all lives matter. Put the shirt away. Buy the shirt not. Avoid tampering with the shirt. This isn’t a joke.”
