Kanye West is doubling down when it comes to his “White Lives Matter” t-shirt.

On Wednesday, in an Instagram post showing the black long-sleeve version of the top, the Yeezy founder wrote, “Here’s my latest response when people ask me why I made a tee that says white lives matter… THEY DO.”

Ye, 45, received backlash over the shirt after wearing it during his surprise Yeezy Season 9 show at Paris Fashion Week on Monday.

In a later Wednesday post, the Donda rapper said that everyone’s interest in his shirt took away from other shows during PFW.

“My tee s*** on everybody’s showssss,” he declared. “Nothing happened but my t-shirt… To the Arnaults that hire anybody that worked for me remember my one t shirt took allllll the attention.”
