"So is Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, in Williams’ opinion, and when the subject of LeBron James’ controversial Vogue cover with Gisele Bündchen comes up, he snaps out of the bored stupor the fourth round of photos has put him in. “I was happy to see that it happened,” he says about seeing the first black man on the cover. But what of the racist imagery? “I’m black so I don’t get King Kong outta that. I think that says something about the person who sees that. [LeBron] doesn’t look like a monkey to me.” He wants to be challenged and when he is, a heated debate ensues. “It’s an iconic picture for fashion. That’s the most important thing,” he says. “And I hate it when people drum up controversy over stupid shit like that. It’s like, yo, look at it objectively. Remove your own personal baggage. Artistically, it’s an iconic picture and it will go down in the books as striking, brave, risky, edgy — and that’s what fashion is. Now, had we given him a safe picture, no one would care. And some of us might even be complaining — ‘See they put him in a suit? They couldn’t give him nothing iconic!’"
