Did Kanye West really allow this designer to use "Niggas in Paris" as a Fashion Line Statement?

Wow..if this story has a semblance of truth..than Kanye went from "George Bush doesn't care about Black People" to allowing Paris Fashion Designers to make a mockery out of Black Culture AND rubber-stamping their use of the word Nigger (don't care how you spell it) while profiting! In my Ricky Ricardo voice "Kanye you have some splainin to do".. Check out the details reported on:DOAHSK

Jean Touitou announced his new collection, Last Niggas In Paris, during Fashion Week. The designer went on to say tha,t rapper Kanye West, gave him approval to use the word n*gga for his latest fashion line.
Here’s what Jean Touitou said:
“I call this one look Last N****s in Paris. Why? Because it’s the sweet spot when the hood—the ‘hood—meets Bertolucci’s movie Last Tango in Paris. So that’s ‘N****s in Paris’ and Last N****s in Paris. 
Yes, I mean, it’s nice to play with the strong signifiers. The Timberland here is a very strong ghetto signifier. In the ghetto, it is all the Timberlands, all the big chain. Not at the same time—never; it’s bad taste. So we designed Timberlands with Timberland.
I made looks which are a cross-over of those two references: the Timberland shoes and the sweat pants are iconic of hip-hop, and the camel hair color coat, worn with nothing under it, is iconic of that precise movie. I am friends with Kanye West, who recorded ‘Ni**as in Paris’ with Jay Z, and he and I presented a joint collection at the same place, one year ago, and that this thing is only a homage to our friendship. As a matter of fact, when I came up with this idea, I wrote to him, with the picture of the look and the name I was giving to it, and he wrote back immediately saying something like, ‘I love this vibe.’”
