Kanye West has ruffled the Italian government’s feathers yet again by wearing a bizarre accessory that puts him in violation of anti-terror laws.
During his long Italian trip with his new wife Bianca Censori, the controversial rapper was spotted wearing a face mask in public. As the couple took over Venice, Florence, and most recently, Milan for Fashion Week, it was revealed that Kanye’s face covering might lead to an investigation for “breaching article 533 of Italian law introduced in 1977 to fight domestic terrorism.”
Following a splat of Islamic-inspired atrocities, the law banning the use of crash helmets and full face coverings was placed in 2005. The only exceptions are for religious grounds and the individual needs to get official permission from local authorities.
“It is forbidden to use any article which will hamper an individual’s identification, in a public place or in a place that is open to the public, with a justifiable motive,” the law states, as per Daily Mail. “The contravention of said article is punishable by a fine of 1,000 Euro up to a maximum of 2,000 Euro.”
