OMFSM! Kanye West doesn't like white people!

Earlier tonight one of my friends broke into the normal conversation of the night to tell us something one of his friends posted on Facebook. It was a super-slam against Kanye West. Among other things his Facebook friend said, "It's a good thing your mother is dead so she didn't have to see what you did tonight." I thought this was extremely harsh. Nothing could deserve such and awful statement!

Then I saw what he did. Here is the clip, although I think this will be disabled in a short time:


So here is what happened. Taylor Swift won a video award for Best Female Video. During her acceptance speech Kanye West rushes the stage and grabs the mic from her. He congratulates her for winning but says Beyonce had one the best video of videos of all time. effectively saying her win was worthless and it belong to Beyonce. Beyone did have a great video and she did go on to win the Video of The Year Award. But I love the You Belong with Me video. It's all about how the nice, unpopular girl should really be with the super hot neighbor guy. She has won several Country Music awards but this was her first big mainstream award and Kanye ruined it. It looks as if she is about to burst into tears...and who would blame her. Beyonce is laughing nervously. I wouldn't know what to do if I were her either. Afterward the crowd erupts in applause and I have no idea if it is in support of Kanye or Taylor. I'm still confused but I want to cry for Taylor.

Really Kanye, I too am happy your mother died before seeing this deplorable behavior. It's just not right.

Here is the video. Go buy the song right now.

I don't see how this can play out well for Kanye. I think this is going to leave a sour taste in people's mouths for a long time.

Tragic.
 
I agree. When he said "George Bush doesn't like black people" on live television, I thought it was timely, political, funny, and true. This was mean-spirited and unnecessary. He's on my boycott for life list. PS, Beyonce shows true class by yielding her acceptance speech to Taylor. Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-Ig38qaUxE.
