Kanye West is selling Confederate flag t-shirts on tour

Kanye West is in the midst of another controversy.

The “New Slaves” rapper has received backlash via social media about selling merchandise sporting the Confederate flag for his Yeezus tour.

The Confederate flag has long been a symbol of the Southern pride, as well as racism and hate.

One of the t-shirts features a skull in front of the Confederate flag with the words “I ain’t comin’ down.” Another shows a grim reaper skull drapped in the Confederate flag. Other visible merchandise donning the flag include canvas totes.

The merchandise is a collaboration with Wes Lang, reports Hip Hop Wired.
