Everyone Is Disgusted That Kanye West Used A Photo Of Whitney Houston’s ‘Drug-Filled Bathroom’ As An Album Cover

Kanye West really stays stirring the pot when it comes to social media and outrage.
After the controversy of his profession of love for Donald Trump, wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, and claiming that “slavery was a choice,” things seemed quiet for West–who has been in Wyoming working on several albums with his record label GOOD Music. On Friday, Pusha T’s new album “DAYTONA” dropped–produced by Kanye West himself.

The cover art for the album was also released by West and Pusha T on social media. The photo–which Kanye West paid $85,000 for–is a photo of Whitney Houston’s bathroom filled with illegal drugs. The photo was taken without permission and sold to the media–and West spent the huge sum to use it for the DAYTONA cover.

I finally got my album art… #DAYTONA 5/25

Many people online and in the media are angry and outraged that the rappers would use this as an album cover–seeing as Houston passed in a bathroom after complications with cocaine. Her daughter, as well, passed in a bathroom as well. Both women suffered from drug addictions. West–who also recently opened up about his opioid addiction problems–clearly is being a hypocrite by using someone else’s struggle with addiction to sell records.

According to BET, Houston’s family is disgusted that West would exploit their family members in such a way. Twitter shares in the disgust.
