Kanye West Calls for Boycott on Louis Vuitton
Kanye West is trying to get New York City to boycott Louis Vuitton.
The "Bound 2" rapper is disgruntled with the French fashion house's head, Yves Carcelle, after he refused to meet him when he was in Paris, and he is planning to teach him a lesson by publicly telling the people of New York City to stop buying his company's products.
"I wanted to meet with [Yves] in Paris. 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 - or [to] the head of Gucci - let me explain why you need to meet with me. Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me? Influence. They think that I don't realize my power," he said, speaking on New York's 92.3 NOW radio station.
Whether the people of New York heed Kanye's demands is yet to be seen.
