Kanye West and his wife, Bianca Censori, have been banned from a rental boat company in Italy. The decision comes after the couple was photographed in a compromising position during a boat ride in Venice last month. The images, which quickly went viral, showed Kanye with his trousers down, while Bianca appeared to be in a suggestive position.
The rental boat company, Venezia Turismo Motoscafi, expressed their disapproval of the couple’s behavior. In a statement, they mentioned that the driver of the boat was focused on traffic and did not witness the incident. If he had, he would have immediately disembarked and reported the couple. The company also pointed out that a third person, accompanying Mr. and Mrs. West, obstructed the captain’s view to the stern.
The incident has sparked significant backlash online. Critics have taken to social media platforms to voice their opinions, with many condemning Kanye’s actions, especially given his previous public image associated with Christianity. One critic mentioned how Kanye has been vocal about shaming his exes in the past, yet seems to find such public displays acceptable. Another comment highlighted the contrast between Kanye’s behavior and that of his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, praising her for shielding their children from such controversies.
Bianca Censori also faced criticism, not just for the boat incident, but also for her choice of fashion during their trip. Locals were reportedly displeased with her see-through outfits. The boat company’s statement to the Daily Mail Australia emphasized their dissociation from such acts and confirmed that the couple would no longer be welcome on their boats.
The couple’s summer has been eventful, with trips to various destinations, including Japan. Kanye was also seen in Dublin, Ireland, recently. Reports suggest that the couple tied the knot in January, though there is speculation about the legality of their union.
This incident adds to a series of controversies surrounding the rapper, raising questions about his public image and the choices he makes in the public eye.
