Ye's controversial fashion show comes less than a year after he donned a "White Lives Matter" shirt in Paris for his Yeezy Season 9 presentation.

Just a few weeks ago, it seemed as though Kanye West was preparing to spend some time out of the spotlight. He cancelled his bid for the presidency and is focused on spending time with his wife, Bianca Censori. However, the embattled artist made a noteworthy return earlier this week. He surprisingly hosted a secret Yeezy Season 10 fashion show at a small venue in Los Angeles. Some were happy to see Ye returning to his creative roots after countless months of chaos. Others, like the Stem Player company who previously cut ties with him due to his troubling antics, couldn't help but notice the apparent Nazism links shown throughout the collection.

As HipHopDX notes, the tech company's Instagram Story shared several photos from the runway event. They made sure to condemn West, making it abundantly clear that they're no longer connected to him. Many of the images have since been deleted. One compared the "Flashing Lights" hitmaker's skinhead models kneeling behind a line of candles in an empty warehouse to a snapshot of white nationalists carrying tiki torches in a Charlottesville, Virginia, march held in 2017. Elsewhere, Censori's white angel wings were said to be the same as a German Reich coat of arms previously worn by Ye in 2022, earning him plenty of backlash.

Stem Player Puts Kanye West on Blast

In their accompanying statement, Stem Player wrote, "Stem is not a part of this. If you found us through far-right politics, this account isn’t for you. If you found us in other ways, clarification over and not needed. Back to building." West's latest stunt comes less than a year after he broke the internet with his controversial "White Lives Matter" shirt at the Yeezy Season 9 show in Paris. Interestingly, the father of four reportedly wasn't in attendance at this week's LA presentation. At the time, very little was shown in terms of clothing.

Aside from making waves in the world of fashion, the 45-year-old is also stirring up rumours that his presidential campaign may be back on after reconnecting with Milo Yiannopoulos.
