Kanye West has the internet in an uproar after photos of him wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt surfaced online.

Ye, 45, wore the controversial shirt, during his surprise Yeezy Season 9 show at Paris Fashion Week on Monday. Instead of people talking about his latest designs though, it was what his shirt that got people talking.

Jaden Smith, who was in attendance at the show, left after seeing the Donda rapper’s outfit.

“I Had To Dip Lol,” he tweeted, before adding, “True Leaders Lead.”

“I Don’t Care Who’s It Is If I Don’t Feel The Message I’m Out,” he wrote in a following message. “Black Lives Matter.”

Meanwhile, Candace Owens wore the same shirt and shared a picture of herself with Ye to Twitter.

Other fans took to social media to share their thoughts as well, with one writing, “Mind you kanye was just calling [Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner] the kkk 2 weeks ago and now he’s wearing a white lives matter shirt.”

Another expressed, “Sending a “WHITE LIVES MATTER” t-shirt down a runway in Paris is literal insanity and no amount of gospel is getting that man through Heaven’s gate, I’m so sorry.”

A third user didn’t seemed phased by the outfit choice, tweeting, “You lot are shocked at Kanye wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt like the man didn’t support Trump.”
