Anna Wintour is living up to her queen of mean moniker.

While talking about her experience taking in Kanye West’s Madison Square Garden fashion show in February, Wintour described his “Yeezy Season 3” line as “migrant chic.”

Wintour, who has served as the editor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988, said there was no malice intended by the remark.  

“We were waiting for the Kardashians to arrive, en masse, and Jay-Z,” she said. “The Life of Pablo concert started and the migrant chic fashion show started and they were both wonderful,” the Vogue editor-in-chief told Seth Meyers.

Wintour’s distasteful comment comes at a time when the migrant crisis continues to worsen.

The Vogue editor-in-chief explained that she did not intend to cause any offense by the remark.

“I apologize if my remark was offensive in any way,” Wintour told the Daily News. “The migrant crisis is real, and I didn’t intend to trivialize that issue,” she said.

More than a million people fleeing war and persecution fled to Europe in 2015, according to the International Organization for Migration.

Over 3 million Syrians have fled the war-ravaged country since 2011, with a remaining 6.5 million left internally displaced within its borders.

A record number of lives have been claimed at sea in the last 12 months, including little Aylan Kurdi’s, in an desperate attempt to reach safer lands in Europe and gain asylum status.

Migrants are facing atrocious conditions in their search for a better life.
