Vogue's Anna Wintour apologises for Kanye West 'migrant chic' remark

ANI  |  Melbourne 

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour, has apologized for branding Kanye West's latest clothing range as "migrant chic."

The 66-year-old reporter said, "I apologise if my remark was offensive in any way," adding that the migrant crisis is real and she didn't intend to trivialise that issue, reported.

After Wintour used the phrase during an appearance on the US talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers, it drew a flurry of criticism by social media users who found it insensitive.

One user said, "So, definitely not the best or most sensitive thing to say," while another wrote, "Anna Wintour called Yeezy season 3 "Migrant Chic". Even though "Chic" is a good thing, the word "Migrant" can be taken any other ways."

West has not publicly responded to the comments.
