Kanye West Gets Booed in UK for Rant During Set

Kanye West didn’t get much love from UK fans yesterday at the Wireless Festival when he was reportedly booed by festival attendees.

The Daily Mail reports that West was one of the featured performers at the festival and in the middle of his set, he went on a 20-minute rant.

“‘I’m not going to mention any names but… Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don’t discriminate against me ‘cos I’m a black man making music,” he reportedly told the crowd.

“F–k saving face and what it’s supposed to mean, it’s about living my dream.”

He was met by boos as his rant went on. West has a history of going on ranting during his own shows, but given that he had a limited time set at a festival, people were understandably unhappy about not hearing music.

Fans reportedly expressed their disappointment on Twitter towards the end as West seemingly kept talking instead of performing his music.

If West wants to redeem himself to festival fans, he has another chance to do it. Kanye will be performing again tonight after Drake was forced to pull out due to an illness.
