Kanye West Under Fire For “Rape” Rant
Kanye West, a man known for saying foolish and outlandish things, is under fire again for saying some foolish and outlandish things. The rapper compared being followed by paparazzi to being raped during a July 4th London concert at Finsbury Park.
“I don’t care what you do in life, everybody needs a day off, everybody has the right to say, ‘You know what, I need a minute to breathe,'” Kanye told the crowd about getting sentenced to two years of probation following a fight with a paparazzo in 2013.
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf*****s following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner are like, ‘Hey, this is what we both want to do.’ But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That is called violation.”
“So if I walk around and say, ‘Look sir, I’m not feeling so good today, I need some space, can you please not f**k with me today?’ I need cut-off space, not violation.”
Sorry, Ye. You elected to marry a woman who is famous for having her picture taken by the paparazzi. You’re the one who continues to engage photographers when you see them on the street instead of ignoring them. It’s not rape, bruh, and to suggest that it is is absurd.
