Fans are voicing their anger over the cancellation of Kanye West‘s Coachella performance, which has been confirmed by Variety. The news comes just days after the multi-hyphenate rapper was suspended from his Instagram account after he was accused of harassing Kim Kardashian and using a racial slur towards comedian Trevor Noah. The Game took to his social media pages to defend the rap mogul.
The Grammys are set to be hosted by Trevor Noah, and Ye has cancelled his performance due to a recent Twitter rant about the Kardashians. According to sources close to Ye, the reason behind the cancellation is unclear. However, there is one possible explanation: the musician’s behavior on social media has drawn widespread criticism. In addition to his targeted posts about Kim Kardashian, Ye is nominated for five Grammy awards, including Album of the Year. The rapper’s canceled appearance on the Grammys was the result of a critic’s petition that has already gained over 36,000 signatures.
Several people are now speaking out to support the rapper, despite the allegations against him. The comedian’s team is also speaking out on the issue with the Grammy Academy and claiming that the ban was a result of his tweets. The group says that they are contacting the musician’s rep to find out why his performance was canceled. While they haven’t released any information about why the rapper was reportedly banned, they do confirm that their investigation has found no evidence of sexual assault.
The controversy surrounding Ye’s cancellation has erupted in a fresh petition, which has over 36,000 signatures. Originally started by the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in the wake of Kanye’s canceled appearance, the petition has gained momentum with fans. The Grammys rep claims that he was contacted by the singer’s team after his recent social media behaviour and that he was unsuitable for a performance. Moreover, he deemed DONDA to be the best album of the year.
Despite the backlash, the controversies surrounding the Grammys are escalating. Despite the recent hysteria, the rap mogul’s Twitter account was suspended just days after he was stripped of the opportunity to perform. Whether or not he was suspended or not, the rumors about his future performance will only escalate in the coming weeks.
Despite the controversy surrounding Ye’s cancellation, his concert has continued to gain momentum and is now the top-selling album of the year. It also topped the chart in the “Top 10 Albums of the Year” category, which prompted the canceled show. Regardless of the reasons behind the Grammys’ decision, the star is no doubt a huge hit.
