Yeezus is at it again!

Kanye West was spotted over the weekend wearing a jacket with a Confederate flag. 

And not only was he wearing it, but he also sells the jacket as merchandise at his show.

During an interview with a Los Angeles radio station, West said it’s an “abstract take” on what he knows about slavery. 

“I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag,” he tells 97.1 AMP. “It’s my flag. Now what are you going to do?”

Kanye’s tour, Yeezus, is scheduled to stop at the Verizon Center in Washington on Nov. 21.
