KANYE WEST GOES ON A RANT FOLLOWING SNL PERFORMANCE!

He was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, performing “I Love It” with Lil Pump and “We Got Love” with Teyana Taylor, but Kanye West made the headlines for other reasons.

Ye, as he is now calling himself, went on a rant at the end of the show, accusing SNL staff of bullying him for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

His diatribe continued, with Ye accusing the media of of bias and calling SNL’s take on Donald Trump unhelpful. He likened his MAGA cap to a Superman cape, saying he couldn’t be told what to do and imploring the audience to think with their “hearts” and not their “minds,” so they could not be controlled.

It was a shocking display from a performer who prides himself on going against the grain. The stunned faces of those standing behind him said it all. This was Kanye in full Kanye mode.

SNL cast member, Kenan Thompson, told Seth Meyers on Monday that Kanye’s outburst was like watching a circus. “He voiced his opinion, very loudly – for a long time,” he said. Thompson went on to say that Kanye perhaps chose the wrong moment to hold people “hostage” as they were forced to endure his rant live on air.
