Uh oh. Kanye West is being accused of misogyny for placing Rihanna and Chris Brown’s naked wax figures next to each other in his ‘Famous’ video, considering he assaulted her in 2009. See the tweets here!
Kanye West is being harshly criticized by fans for his “Famous” music video after placing a naked Rihanna next to her ex Chris Brown in it. It’s well known that Chris beat Rihanna in 2009, so fans think it’s super disrespectful for Kanye to have put them next to each other in bed, while naked.
Kanye released his video, which features 12 naked celebrities lying in bed next to each other, on Friday night, June 25. Kanye and Kim Kardashian were placed in the middle of the bed, while Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Taylor Swift, Bill Cosby, Amber Rose, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Anna Wintour and Ray J lie around them.
It’s all pretty shocking, but fans were most offended by Rihanna and Chris’ placement on the bed.

“He put a naked Rihanna next to naked Chris Brown. That s*** is tasteless and exploitive,” another Twitter user said, while one added, “Kanye’s new music video proves misogyny is still alive and thriving lol I’m disgusted.”
Kanye has yet to comment on the placement of certain individuals, but before the video was released, he told Vanity Fair, “It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]… It’s a comment on fame.”
We do have to admit it was interesting that Kanye included both Rihanna and Chris Brown in his video, AND placed them next to each other. But we had no idea it would upset so many people.
