Aussie artist comes under fire for new Kanye West mural

Hip Hop Hollywood 29/11/2016

An Aussie artist has come under fire after painting a mural of Kanye West in a straitjacket, following his recently hospitalisation.

The Melbourne based artist @Lushsux's portrait of Yeezy was branded as inappropriate and a cheap shot.

The image shows Kanye in a straitjacket with stars flying around his head. It's pretty obvious that it was inspired by his recent admission to hospital following a psychiatric emergency.

Following the backlash @Lushsux changed the mural to be 'less problematic and a safe space for all'.

@Lushsux is the artist behind many other controversial mural's like Hilary Clinton's almost naked portrait and Donald Trump with the 'hoe filter'.
