Zappos unveils a new 's**t product' just for Kanye

Kanye's latest attack lands in the toilet.

Author Bret Easton Ellis has a podcast now, and his first guest, naturally, was Kanye West. The two spoke of creativity, genius, and how much those things inform their creativity and genius. But fashion also came up, and West had a message for Tony Hsieh, the CEO of online retailer Zappos, and his “shit product.”

Why all the shade towards Hsieh? Well, he apparently told West to focus on music, rather than fashion, during a recent business meeting in Las Vegas. But no one puts Yeezy in a corner:

"I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he's trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this shit product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling shit product.”

The Vegas-based Zappos wasted no time with their own mic drop, however, and posted a link to a new product, priced at $100,000, with this item description:

“Interested in buying sh-t product? You've come to the right place! Here at, we happily sell sh-t products to everybody! This is the throne, everyone has been watching. Whether you're #1 or #2, your clique will show no mercy, even in Paris.”

Oh, snap! There's even a video. 

C’mon, Kanye. Zappos makes perfectly comfortable shoes for a god.

How a viral video launched an old Kanye West track back up the charts
We haven’t heard much lately from Marina Shifrin, the young woman who quit her Internet job in the most Internet way possible last month and spawned several parody videos in the process. That’s the cyclical nature of “viral” videos; much like a common cold, it hung out for a week or so, then was flushed out of the Internet’s immune system to make way for the next clickable moment. (She was offered a job by Queen Latifah, though.)
