Kanye West probably lost himself a bunch of fans after an incident that I hesitate to call a performance.
During his “concert” Saturday night in Sacramento, California West reportedly sang a two to three songs before embarking on what was said to be a 15 minute rant on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Taylor Swift. After the rant he apparently dropped the mic, walked off stage and ended the show.

The fans who just got ripped off by Kanye obviously weren’t happy and a much needed “Fuck You Kanye” chant broke out there after.

On top ending things early, Kanye also showed up about an hour late which is par for the course when it comes to douche-bag performers. He also pulled a similar stunt Thursday night in San Jose when he went on a 40 minute political rant proclaiming he would have voted for Donald Trump while also telling fans that they should “stop focussing on racism”. This of course coming from the same guy who said George Bush “did not care about black people” in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
There’s no word on if the fans who spent money on tickets would be reimbursed and West has refused to comment on the matter.
Perhaps the silver lining to all of this is less of Kanye in the future.
