Over the weekend, West took to Twitter to share the casting call for his Yeezy Season 4 fashion show — and judging by the reactions to it, it’s not winning him any friends.

The rapper has come under fire for what many believe to be an inappropriate casting call. It reads, “Multiracial women only … No makeup please come as you are.”

West has yet to respond to the controversy, but we doubt he minds the publicity it’s generating as his line is set to debut in just two days’ time on Sept. 7 at the opening of New York Fashion Week. And according to Daily Mail, despite the backlash, there were still a lot of people who went to the audition, as lines were seen around the block from the studio in Manhattan.
