The former Atlanta city councilwoman who organized “Kanye West Day” separates herself from the rapper. She says she would not grant the distinction now because of his recent contentious words. It’s a waste of great honor, considering the day was created to recognize all of Kanye’s great, nice things in Atlanta.
Last year, Natalyn Archibong, a member of the Atlanta City Council, proposed a proclamation honoring Ye, who was born in Atlanta, with his day.
Due to his recent comments about George Floyd’s death and anti-Semitic Tweets, she is now bidding him “a shocked and disgusted farewell.”
According to TMZ, Kanye West’s Donda tour kicked off in Atlanta on July 22, 2021, and the city dubbed that date “Kanye West Day.” Natalyn, the driving force behind the announcement, claims that it was a one-time occurrence that cannot be replicated.
According to her, there were four primary reasons for honoring Kanye with his day. She claims that Ye’s Donda tour began in Atlanta, that he was born there, and that his mother, Donda West, attended the HBCU Morris Brown College in Atlanta.
Natalyn concluded that the declaration acknowledged his significant contribution to the arts.
However, Kanye has caused considerable controversy since then. Natalyn explains that the July 2021 proclamation did not anticipate that in 2022, the artist formerly known as Kanye West would brazenly make such offensive remarks.
In conclusion, Natalyn:
“To Ye I say nay.”
Parlement Technologies, the parent company of the social media app Parler, announced Monday that Kanye West would acquire it. He legally changed his name to Ye last year. Kanye, on the other hand, appears unfazed by anything. Even with all the cancellations and opposition, it will not be possible.
The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to the conservative app Parler. It didn’t provide a deal value. Parler launched a new parent company, Parlement Technologies Inc, last month as part of a reorganization. West terminated its agreement with clothing retailer Gap Inc last month, citing failure to meet contractual obligations.
