Kanye is gearing up for the presentation of his Yeezy Season 4 collection, set to debut on September 7 during New York Fashion Week. Yesterday, the rapper/fashion designer took to Twitter to share the details for the casting call.

It read: “Season 4 Casting Multiracial Women Only No Makeup Please Come As You Are”

Unsurprisingly, the specific ethnicity requirements of the open call—which took place today in New York City—caused more than a few eyebrows to raise. Many Twitter users shot back with angry comments about West’s announcement, suggesting “multiracial” was just a subtle way of excluding dark-skinned women from consideration or that it perpetuates the idea that ethnic is desirable, but too ethnic is not. Others snarked at how exactly he planned to verify the ancestry of each aspiring model.

Here are some of the reactions and responses to Kanye West’s controversial (what else is new?) casting call tweet:
