As we previously reported, on Friday, September 12, 2014 Kanye West was performing in Sydney, Australia and stopped mid-performance to insist all of the fans stand up before he would continue with his show.
After stopping the concert a second time to throw another ranty tantrum about people sitting down, he found that the two fans in question were sitting because they didn’t have the physical ability to stand. They were wheelchair bound!
Ye’s actions made the rounds on both social media and regular news world wide and everyone called the self-centered rapper out for his ridiculous antics.
So, in response, according to MTV, Kanye decided to blast the media! Said Yeezus,
“I’m a married Christian man with a family. At my concerts, I make sure everybody has good of a time as possible, so all this demonizing me it ain’t going to work after a while. Pick a new target ’cause I’m not one of these dumb-ass artists that you’re used to. You come at me and I’m gonna take my platform and break this shit down for real intelligent people every night so they can understand, then we get back to the music.
It’s like, welcome to today’s news, ladies and gentlemen, you know? We got Americans getting killed on TV, kids getting killed every weekend in Chicago, we have unarmed people being killed by police officers and we have Kanye West buying ice cream and also that squirrel can jet ski.
You know, it makes you just wanna reflect on the things that are a little more sensationalized than others so I wanna take this platform.”
Wow, he’s so much smarter than the rest of us!
If he stopped taking part in thirst bucket type activities then people would get bored and leave him alone. But apparently Kanye doesn’t think that all of these rants and ridiculous actions are promoting his jackassery to the world. So, who are we to tell him any different?
Besides, every stupid thing he does just gives us another story for the day…just saying!
