Kanye West and Bianca Censori recently faced consequences for their behavior during a Venice boat ride, resulting in a ban from the boat company.
The Controversial Voyage:
Photographs from their August boat ride in Venice captured Kanye West in a compromising position, with his trousers down and buttocks exposed, while Censori appeared in an unconventional pose between his legs.
In response, Venezia Turismo Motoscafi, a boat company known for its celebrity clientele, including Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, and Ben Affleck, banned the couple from their services. They clarified that their boat driver didn’t witness the inappropriate acts, as they were focused on navigating the waterway. However, they emphasized that they would have taken immediate action if the driver had observed any lewd behavior. A third person on board, accompanying the couple, obstructed the captain’s view to the rear of the boat.
Kanye West’s Controversial Past:
Kanye West, initially famous for hit songs like “Stronger” (2007) and “Waves” (2016), has faced controversy in recent years. Adidas and Balenciaga dropped him in 2022 over divisive comments related to Jewish people. His online presence led to multiple Twitter account suspensions and reinstatements. He made headlines for wearing “White Lives Matter” T-shirts during Paris Fashion Week and shared antisemitic conspiracy theories on Instagram. Fellow celebrities, including Lizzo and John Legend, criticized him. West remained unapologetic, stating that he does not believe in the term antisemitism. Kanye West’s latest music, “Donda 2,” released in February 2022, was exclusively available on his streaming device, the Stem Player. Prior to that, he released his 10th studio album, “Donda,” in August 2021.
