Kanye West showered with boos following 20-minute rant in London

This weekend, Kanye West headlines not one, but two nights of the UK-based Wireless Festival, filling in as a last-minute replacement for Drake, who canceled due to illness. However, Kanye didn’t receive much of a hero’s welcome when he took the stage in London on Friday night.

According to the Mirror, Kanye delivered a 20-minute diatribe about Nike, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and all the other usual suspects. However, the audience didn’t take too kindly to the rant and proceeded to shower the rapper with boos, as you can see via the Vine video below.

Kanye ultimately finished the set, but tomorrow night should prove interesting as Kanye will take to the same stage, performing for the same crowd.

Pure Lies
July 5, 2014 at 8:07 pm

I was there. This article is pure bullshit. Was this vine taken in the 40 strong “I hate Kanye” camp? I’m not a Kanye West fan but the crowd were not booing him. Talk bad about big companies and this is what you get.

I was at the back and heard the boos,, the rest of my party, were down the front enjoying the performance and didn’t hear one boo,, true fans are used to his rants :)

I was there too, somewhere in the middle but probably further towards the back than the front. I heard a lot of boos all around me and right the way back, and saw people leaving halfway through his rant right up until the end of it. It’s not really ‘talk bad about big companies and this is what you get’ its more ‘waste time you’re supposed to be performing with your bullshit narcissism when people have paid for their tickets and this is what you get’. The man needs to get the fuck over himself, end of.

I do like how he said, “I don’t care about saving face, fuck my face…….oh, that sounded wrong” :-) …….other than that, he is a tool of the music industry, so he has points from obviously living that life (thou shalt remake a perfectly great song for no reason…. Curtis Mayfield – Move On Up) ; but it’s a life few can relate to and it is hard to be taken seriously with what he is saying once you’ve made it.

Is this all you say to people? I didn’t search, still found it. The media doesn’t hate Kanye, as much as you West-bummers are all claiming. They fucking love Kanye, cos he’s of his fucking tits on drugs 24:7 so just comes out with utter bullshit like this. His whole visage is a fucking joke that we all love laughing at and taking the piss out of. I came here to get a good chuckle out of this utter tit making yet another arse of himself.

As a result, this kind of bollocks gets pushed in our faces on very social media website we go on. So we come here, have a laugh at his stupidity and pathetic existence, and then watch dumbass gullible twats like you try and defend him.

You’re too easy to troll. Just crawl back inside Kanye’s arse and die.

no, about 100 individuals who aren’t fans booed, the rest of the 60,000 crowd enjoyed the amazing show he put on and showed support. Funny how this kind of article is doing EXACTLY what he was “ranting” about. Making him look like an egomaniac idiot, when in reality he appeared very humble and laughed at himself and smiled a lot of the time as the crowd was singing along.

Probably the reason why Kanye got so many ‘boos’ was due to all the close minded individuals who believe that Drake ‘started from the bottom’ and bought tickets to see their ‘bae’. Without realising that half the stuff Kanye preaches, though egotistical and intensified through the use of emotive language is often true. But they’d rather live by the motto YOLO or HYFR than open their eyes and accept reality.

Ciara Gittins
July 5, 2014 at 1:34 pm

it was probably cos they paid to see the artists PERFORM not give them a speech

Is he for real? If he’s autistic (no offence meant) then I understand. Otherwise I just think he’s not very bright… I’m quite sure it’s clear to almost everyone in the audience, 99.5% of them, that he’s over-doing the talk and people aren’t interested… But he says it anyway then expects to be respected. That’s like farting in someone’s face then not apologising, only bitching about why they didn’t say thankyou.

Sorry, but do you know what autism is!? Being autistic doesn’t mean you’re unintelligent – in fact its more often than not the other way around! – Said the girl with high functioning autism, who really doesn’t like being compared to the egotistical nonsense that is Kanye West!

My son is autistic & he is in no way lacking in intelligence, he is lacking in his ability to communicate well verbally to idiots like you that think autistic = retarded. Unless you fully understand a condition don’t pass comment on it flippantly. Saying ‘no offence’ doesn’t get you off the hook for saying something offensive either. Muppet.

I think people are being pretty harsh, I acknowledge the fact that it was long winded and perhaps what people didn’t want to hear but he put himself put there in front of quite a harsh crowd, and I think that it showed a different side of Kanye. I also thought that it calmed the crowd down a lot, I was right at the front and the crowd was mental prior to this speech, I love Kanye and this hasn’t changed my perception of him as an artist.

If it was his own gig that people had paid money to go to then I would agree with you, but the fact that he had been brought in to replace someone else at a FESTIVAL, I’d be pretty pissed off too.

haha. you think this wasnt true? i was there, in the mid-back section, and i was surrounded by alot of booing as kanye west wouldnt shut up and play, but once again used the stage to confirm he as as narcissistic as i thought. before his rant half his songs dragged out and he seemed to want the audience to sing the song for him as he would barely finish a song properly.

and it was not 10-15. it was most certainly 20-25 minutes minimum. it was so irritating me and my friends left as even though he eventually began to play again it started raining and we decided it just wasnt worth it.

huge disappointment.

Erm, showered with Boo’s? I was there and although Kanye’s 10-15 minute rant/singing was annoying and a little off topic. It wasn’t that bad, many people were cheering as well at what he was saying. Don’t create a whole article from listening to a vine. Also I’m pretty sure that the boo’s were largely directed at the people he was talking about. This is why I never believe online blogs/news anymore.

‘Boos.’ Perhaps it was actually referring to the sickly black saying of ‘one’s boo;’ perhaps Kanye was in fact showered by gallons of slit?

KOB
July 5, 2014 at 2:14 pm

I’ve been to a lot of music festivals and Kanye is the only musician I remember being booed at all. His rants are beyond meaningless; fashion designers would have a much easier time marketing a celebrity’s fashion ideas if they were any good. Kanye makes good beats, sometimes has good lyrics, and knows how to market himself. Those are his three discernible skills. As much as he claims to be an artist first, he markets himself like a celebrity with fake beefs, famous friends, and general egomania.
