Kanye West, no stranger to controversy, is definitely making a statement on his Yeezus tour -- both on stage and off. The set, which includes a man dressed up as Jesus, is augmented by dark merchandise that makes prominent use of the Confederate Flag, Native American headdresses and skeletons:


Yeezus is certainly West's most political album, but anyone who dares to dress in Yeezus gear is probably not making a statement so much as trolling for reactions. For more pictures of merchandise, check out Complex.
