Kanye West has come under fire for “mocking” Islam after naming his new $230 sneaker “the Islamic angels of judgment and death,” reports the Pakistani daily The Nation.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Israfil is already being stocked by Adidas, while the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Asrielis is expected to launch next month.
