The rapper has been raising more eyebrows than usual recently, after being booed by audience members in San Jose, California, for saying he would have voted for Donald Trump, and ending his subsequent Sacremento show after just thirty minutes, following a 17-minute rant both praising the president-elect, and calling out Beyoncé.
Now, Ticketmaster is issuing refunds to the attendees of West’s Sacramento show. Additionally, the rapper’s Sunday night show in Los Angeles, which was to be a makeup for a Saint Pablo Tour date he had to cut short due to losing his voice, has been canceled.
The 39-year-old musician also posted over 99 bizarre photos to his previously dormant Instagram in roughly the span of an hour on Sunday evening, without context. In the seemingly vintage fashion photos, the subjects’ eyes are often obscured.
You can see a few of them below, but there are many, many more on his Instagram page.
The alarming amount of posts and seeming randomness has led some fans to be worried, while others are considering whether ‘Ye is using his profile more like a Pinterest page, and still others question whether Kanye's daughter North has gotten ahold of his phone again.
“Beyoncé, I was hurt. 'Cause I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling,'" Kanye said during his Sacramento Saint Pablo Tour rant, referencing this year's MTV Video Music Awards. "Now don't go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F**k winning. F**k looking cool. F**k being cool.”
"Ay Z, call me bruh. You still ain't called me," he continued. "Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man."
Then in his final statement before abruptly ending his show, Kanye seemed to understand the controversy his words would cause, saying, "Right now, press, get ready to write your passive aggressive, LeBron James racist comments, Season 4 racist comments. Get ready to have a field day, press, get ready, get ready, because the show’s over.”
