No One Showed Up To Kanye West’s 2XU Event In Australia

A launch for new product by Kanye West flopped in Australia.

(AllHipHop News) Can’t win ‘em all.

Kanye West has single-handedly become the topic of interest (or hate) among not only the hip-hop community but society as a whole.

Now, early Saturday morning at 9 a.m. sharp, Kanye’s most recent collaboration with Australian sportswear brand 2XU went on sale.

The result? An empty flagship store on Oxford St, Paddington.

Past track records have shown that any type of product launch with Kanye’s highly-coveted Yeezy brand is met with undivided attention and hoards of hypebeast fashion-lovers.

Unfortunately, the YEEZY x 2XU Season 6 capsule was met with the opposite: silence.

Expecting nothing short of a riot, 2XU had arranged a one-hour instore to follow the launch of this "extremely limited stock.”

The only thing missing? The customers.

The shop waited for about 45 minutes before shutting the event down.

"There’s been a change of direction from head office and unfortunately the event has been canceled," a rep for 2Xu said.

Even on Instagram, the hashtag #YEEZYx2XU had only been used 10 times. Yeezus.

I have never like ye music but if you will sacrifice you're own mom y wouldnt you sacrifice your own people wake up everybody think about that and furthermore every man except rayj and chris Humphreys ended up fucked up mentally .

Shut up. There were well over 4,000 documented black slave revolts, stop spewing out dumb shit and pick up a history book and READ IT! Maybe yiur ancestors should have jumped ship then your dumb ass wouldn’t be here saying dumb shit, dummy!

This is aimed at everyone except KingSly, damn you people are stupid, wake up!

I'm with you.

So let me get this straight only adults where taken as slaves and would think it's better kill themselves rather than stay and protect their children that where being sent to a strange land with no protection.If that is your belief drink bleach and kill yourself.You don't know every slave and their story

I wasn't around 400 years ago but I am here now. And my choice in 2018 is to not support stupidity. It seems like others agree by not showing up to your events.

I think Kanye didn’t articulate his point well. Our ancestors were mentally enslaved through “fear” to demoralize us from being rebellious. They could’ve easily overtaken their oppressors but “fear” of consequences compelled thousands never to take action for generations.

F you Kanye 🖕

You sound like a F-ing FOOL. Read a book or take an African American history class you dunce. You need to take SEVERAL seats and glue your fingers together so you can stop embarrassing your ENTIRE family with this ignorance you're spewing.

Kanye is under mk ultra period

Wait, that can’t be right. You’ve managed to use words to say that.

Good job he’s got brown-nosers to explain what he means because he can’t use words good, despite proclaiming himself as a lyrical genius.

He needs to live with the repercussions of his endless shit talking. It’s sychophants like you who have allowed this to happen by ass-kissing when you should be holding him to account.

Good. Maybe we can have a break from his sub-standard ‘music’ and non-reader of books dumbassery now. What an imbecile.

KKKanye

Slavery was a choice?.. Tell that to Nat Turner and those that followed him.. Sleep In Peace...
