Kanye West, or Ye as of today, has been walking for several days wearing a creepy rubber mask over his face. Fans have noticed that he has several different designs of the mask, and they also associate them with the rapper's recent official name change to "Ye", TMZ reports.

While many commented on Ye’s fashion combinations, namely, the hat, sunglasses, boots, and a Balenciaga leather jacket, some commented on the color of the creepy rubber mask and associated it with “white skin” and racial connotations.

Although the masks are more reminiscent of a Halloween costume, some also suspect Kanye’s new business venture, a line of medical masks designed to prevent COVID-19.

West most likely just wanted to hide from the public, but it actually caught the attention of fans who were eager to take a photo with the famous rapper or simply just greet him.
