Kanye West met privately with Vogue‘s contributing editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson after bullying her on Instagram.
Kanye insulted Karefa-Johnson after she criticized his controversial “White Lives Matter” t-shirts.
She wrote that Kanye’s behavior was “irresponsible and dangerous” and that his shirts inspired “pure violence.”
In an Instagram post on Monday, Kanye shared an image of Karefa-Johnson’s attire and wrote “This is not a fashion person.” He also insulted her knee-high boots.
In a post on Tuesday, Ye said he apologized to Karefa-Johnson over dinner. He said he was “not letting people go to bed thinking I didn’t meet with Gabrielle at 5 pm today for two hours, then we went to dinner at [Ferdi].”
Kanye arranged the meeting after a friend told him it wasn’t wise for a struggling designer to go to war with a Vogue editor.
He posted photos from their meeting on his Instagram page on Thursday.
The photos show Kanye and Karefa-Johnson sitting in chairs facing each other in a spacious room.
Karefa-Johnson assumed a position of dominance with her legs spread wide and her hands clenched on her lap.
Kanye said they apologized to each other “for the way we made each other feel. We actually got along and have both experienced the fight for acceptance in a world that’s not our own. She disagreed I disagreed we disagreed. At least we both love Ferdie [sic] and fashion.”
In a post on Wednesday, Kanye once again attacked the Vogue editor, referring to her boots as “f—ing trash.”
Karefa-Johnson defended her personal style in a post on Instagram.
“I’ve fielded some serious volatility over the last couple days but nothing has been quite as bad as what people have said about my body and the way I look. The fat phobia JUMPED out. Yes, I am fat. No, I am not humiliated to show up as my authentic self in the world… To my fellow fat sisters and brothers, put that lil dress on, grab your miniskirts: We ride at dawn!”
