Kanye West Pulled From Grammys Due To Social Media Posts
Kanye West won’t be performing at this year’s Grammys ceremony after producers decided to yank him from the show due to his recent online antics.
According to TMZ, Ye’s reps confirmed that the rapper wouldn’t be hitting the stage in a few weeks, claiming the reason cited was his “concerning online behavior,” which the Recording Academy felt might translate to a fiasco in a live show setting.
Ye’s involvement with the Grammys show wasn’t even made public before this announcement, but now comes word that the offer for him to perform has been rescinded.
The Game exposed the drama in a lengthy IG post, slamming the Grammys officials for their decision to uninvite Ye, calling it censorship.
“Time & time again, they show us that they only want to STEAL the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals. In a more than obvious move for reasons of minuscule actions,” The Game wrote.
Insiders claim Grammy producers were wary of what might happen with Ye performing during the show hosted by Trevor Noah after Kanye called Noah a “k**n,” earlier this week in an IG post that led to the social media platform suspending his account.
Kanye West will no longer be hitting the 2022 Grammys stage, as a rep for the artist has confirmed that his performance has been pulled due to his “concerning online behavior.”
Variety confirmed the news shortly after West’s “Eazy” collaborator, rapper The Game, took to social media in a rant defending the multi-hyphenate as he faces scrutiny for harassing estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, cyberbullying Pete Davidson and using a racial slur while addressing “The Daily Show” host, Trevor Noah.
“The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming,” The Game, born Jayceon Taylor, shared via Instagram Friday night.
“Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions,” the MC hypothesized.
“Speak your mind in this country for yourself, family or your people & you’re ostracized immediately & if you push them hard enough they will stop at no ends to try and put an end to you as a whole,” the Compton, Calif. native went on. “I can’t sleep at night knowing I was quiet about issues burning holes in my heart or narratives incorrectly pushed by the mass agenda to create a mind set that the person at hand is krazy or has issues internally that are beyond repair.”
While West will no longer be performing, the rapper’s 2021 album “Donda” has been nominated for five awards, including Album of the Year.
News of his cancelled performance comes days after one critic began a petition to have Ye dropped as a headliner for this year’s Coachella Music Festival.
