While many people have been expressing their outrage over the price of the socks — based on a photo of the merchandise stand at Coachella — Kanye’s website clarifies that you actually get both pairs for $50, not just one.
Nonetheless, many people were upset at both the price tag and the fact he was selling merch on Easter Sunday.
