Kanye West is no stranger to controversy–in fact nearly everything he does is analyzed and critiqued under the public’s review. This season’s fashion show has proven no different when earlier this week, the artist tweeted out a casting call for “multiracial women only” for his Season 4 show. Needless to say the Twitter backlash was epic and instant.
