A group of Kanye West fans have started a number of GoFundMe pages in an attempt to help the former billionaire recoup his financial losses. According to NME, numerous GoFundMe pages have been set up, with one dubbed “Make Kanye West a Billionaire Again,” with a goal to raise $1 billion USD for the rapper.
News of the pages comes shortly after Ye was recently dropped by both Balenciaga and adidas, with the latter resulting in a $400m loss, and in turn costing him his billionaire status.
After that, Ye went on to attack Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson alongside posting a string of anti-semitic tweets.
Since then, Ye has been dropped by JP Morgan Chase, GAP, Balenciaga and adidas, was temporarily locked out of Instagram and Twitter and has seen the likes of Justin and Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Jaden Smith speak out against his actions.
CEO of media company Emanuel also shared a poignant message on Financial Times, urging more businesses to cut ties. In response, Ye took to Instagram once again and shared, “Ari Emanuel. I lost 2 billion dollars in one day. And I’m still alive.
This is love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.”
